Before And After The Fire

We got a text late last night, after we had gone to bed. But we didn’t see it until this morning. A cousin of Danny’s was planning to smoke the brisket all night. This morning I requested an after picture. Too bad we don’t have “smell phones”!

Oh beloved, God wants to remind you this morning that there is a before and after picture for your life too. And for the times when you are about to go into the fire. All you can see and smell is raw emotion and lots of smoke. It obscures everything. You are thinking this morning that if you don’t get pulled out of the fire you aren’t going to make it.

But God reminds you this morning that the fiery furnace is not your forever place. And when you come out you will be a more beautiful picture of Christ and you will carry His aroma with you everywhere. People need to know that your after picture is Truth! God gets His own through things. And not just barely! Not just maybe! But He does! Don’t give up now. Don’t lay down on your watch. It’s God’s pleasure to get you through. And it’s your pleasure to see God use what was meant to destroy you!

God loves you and He’s for you. Remember the Word of the Lord to you. Remember the Scriptures of faith for you. Thank Him this morning that you can see nothing but Him right now and that’s more than enough! And that all your life He has been faithful and your testimony will help heal the nations!

Daniel 3:25 He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like the son of God!”

Isaiah 43:2 …When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, nor will the flame burn you.

2 Corinthians 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us triumphantly as captives in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.

About Rebekah Beene

In a Women’s meeting in 1983, I went up for prayer and to see if God had “anything for me”. The woman of God who was praying for people spoke over my life. She said these words: “You will write books. You can go to the bank on it. Rivers of living water will flow from your belly…”
