Handling Stress God's Way Part 3

Isaiah 43:2
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

In the book of Daniel chapter 3, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to worship a gold idol set up by the King. So they were thrown into a fiery furnace and in verse 24 and 25, the king jumped to his feet in amazement wondering why there were 4 men in the furnace and not only the 3 he sent. He said the fourth looks like a son of gods. In relating this to our lives that when we feel like the enemy is turning up the heat of discouragement, worry, stress, and fear you need to know that the fourth man Jesus is going to be standing right next to you. So be encouraged to know today that when the enemy works overtime on discouragement, worry, stress and fear that only means that God is getting ready to do something awesome!
