“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, Oh 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,” Daniel 3:24-25.
“I AM the great I AM and I fill every believer with My Spirit.
“My Spirit is moving across the waters at this time. I see the many people who are hurting in this hour.
“I hear their cries of anguish. I tell you that even as things get more and more difficult, I will be in the fiery furnace with you.
“For they did not burn up when they were in the fiery furnace before. For the fiery furnace of lack, the fiery furnace of affliction, and the fiery furnace of sorrow, will not burn you up.
“None of the embers from the fire will touch you my children. For with a wind I can keep them from touching your tent.
“For my provision comes from above and it is not confined to this world.
“For I will provide bread for the eater. For as everything around you seems to be “shutting down,” I will never “shut down.”
“It is a season of depending upon Me,” says The LORD.
“For even though some of you have lost your jobs, even though some of you are working for less pay.
“I then see that shortage, I then see that lack, and I draw from my storehouse that is in heaven.
“For I will not allow the wicked to prosper forever. I will catch him in his schemes.
“I tell you that you have entered into a time of great testing. But again I tell you, were not those in the fiery furnace tested?
“Consider all those who have come before you,and you will find that there are countless examples.
“I rescued them from many waters. They went to a country where they didn’t know where they were going, and in time they came to the land that I had promised them.
“It is a narrow way that I will lead you. but if you have ears to hear and eyes to see, you will know the way that is before you.”
