FAITH IN THE FIRE
Faith in the Fire will be the topic of my #Write31Days Challenge. It is a community of writers/ bloggers who commit to write each day through the month of October on a specific topic. I accepted this challenge last year and it changed my life. From the feedback, It changed the lives of those who followed and read as well.
Last year’s topic was “Laying Down Stones”. I have changed the “home” of my blog and currently do not have all of that series under one tab, but they are still on the site. If you want to read them, feel free to use the search box with the word “stones” and you will be able to find all of them.
HOW FAITH IN THE FIRE WAS CHOSEN
Three weeks ago I was asking God “IF I participated in this year’s challenge, what would my topic be?” As I was reading the bible I stumbled face first into this:
“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”, Daniel 3:17-18, NLT
I sat there thinking, “God, I want to have the kind of faith that KNOWS You can deliver me from the fiery trials of this life, TRUSTS You will deliver me, but is UNWAVERING in its commitment to You if deliverance doesn’t come.”
WHAT TO EXPECT
Over the next 31 days (October 1-31) I will be writing about having Faith in the Fire. It is a given that each of us will have a fiery trial at least once in our life. (If we are lucky its only one) We will examine what the bible says about our trials and our suffering. We will look at stories from the bible as well as current stories of people having Faith in the Fire.
My hope and prayer is that as you read this series, God encourages your faith as you walk through your own fiery furnace.
Have hope. Be encouraged. Let’s allow God to help us become Faithful Fire Walkers who KNOW that God can deliver us, TRUST that He will, but are UNWAVERING in our faith if He doesn’t!
