Daniel 3:23-25(KJV); And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
God can be at the center of some of the worst circumstances of our lives.
He was in Joseph’s story as he moved from being a favoured son to a slave, to a prisoner and finally to Prime Minister of Egypt(Genesis 37).
He was in Israel’s story when they seemed stuck between the approaching Egyptian army and the Red sea (Exodus 14:9-10).
In our theme scripture, He was in the frightening story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
Never assume that if God is to be a part of something, then it has to be all easy. No! He can be right in the middle of the hardest, most confusing situations.
On the other hand, I have seen the devil work through the easiest means. He can give a man a quick plane ticket to the wrong destination. That man may assume it is God working because of how easy things turned out to be.
Do not judge God by how easy or hard circumstances look.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Never assume that if God is to be a part of something, then it has to be all easy. No! He can be right in the middle of the hardest, most confusing situations.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. You are my shield, strength and firm foundation. I discern Your plans even in the worst circumstances. By this wisdom, I never draw back into perdition but believe to the end, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
