The Fourth Man in your Trouble:

Daniel 3: 24- 25Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and rose up in haste. He declared to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”  He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.”
           In life there are different kinds of fires, Fire of difficulty, fire of oppression, fire of depression, fire of persecution, fire of lack, joblessness, broken relationships etc. In the midst of the fire you can STILL work, walk and win!!!! I heard a preacher said, “Things happen for you, not to you.” I jumped in my seat and shouted, “That is right, Brother!” If we have this concept in our hearts during the times of Trouble, it will help us conquer and stop playing the pity party game on ourselves. The bible stated in Romans 8:28; that all things work together for good for those who are in Christ Jesus.”  These three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into fire for no fault of theirs. In life things just happen, not because you did something wrong. Sometimes it might be as a result of wrong choices. However, whichever one it is, God WILL deliver you in the Fire not from the fire.   A lot of lessons to learn from the bible scripture above:  First, even in your fire, God is already there waiting for you to cool off the fire before you even get into you. He is the Fourth man in your situation! The fire that was supposed to be the end of their lives, turned out to be the place where they met God. God will meet you at the center of your trouble and right on time too.  Secondly, three men were brought out but where did the fourth man go to? Simply put, He remained in your Fire to make sure it is properly quenched. Thirdly, the three men did not compromise their faith because of their Fate!!! They believed that God was able to deliver them and because of that, God showed up and showed off for them.
    He is the Fourth man in your Trouble!!!!! You are not alone.

Knocked Down But Not Out! 

 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9
‘we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.’ Most people in life definitively have one experience or the other in their life where they feel knocked down or they lost to someone. Some have tasted hunger, rejection, cold, lack, depression, financial breakdown and even broken relationship. The bible stated in Proverbs 24:16 ‘the righteous man may fall 7 times but he gets back up again. Yes, that is absolutely encouraging to know that! No matter the state of “lowness” you are in at this moment, the good news is that even though you are knocked down, you are not out! (2 Corinthians 4: 8-9). You will rise again! What most people do when they are down is that they play the self- pity party game and instead of rising up and moving on, they choose to stay down. It is usually not over until you say it is over. Do you know you could get trampled upon if you do not get up quickly and out of the way!  Other people who were knocked down in life but chose not to be knocked out will arise and be among those that crush you on their way to victory if you do not rise up.Do not be lost in the mist of discouragement, worry, helplessness, and confusion. There is a saying that goes “why worry, when you can pray or why pray when you can worry.” The choice is yours! Chose to rise again or chose to be knocked down and out! The truth remains that you can be knocked down but not out. Tell your self, "I refuse to quit."Pastor IJ Agunanne

When God remains silent:

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9 (NIV).

  Ignore the silence of God will be the best advice I would give anyone. Is so hard to keep the faith and believe that God is near-by when you do not see any result. You are very much entitled to feel that He is absent even when He is right there with you. This is because circumstances are showing you He is not there.  You may ask “How can God be present and I am going through all this?” This would be most people’s question. Here is the deal: - For you to receive the impossible, you will have to believe the unbelievable.  Have you waited for that miracle a long time? It takes just one day, one click from God and your situation changes for the best. When it seems that God is taking too long to answer, it is because He is busy mapping out the best strategy to give you an expected end. Remember that with God, all things are possible! It did not say some things are possible, it says ALL things are possible. Even in the book of Jeremiah 29:11; God reminds us that He is always thinking about us to give us an expected end. Have you ever seen somebody in deep thoughts; they tend to be quite and silent. Same is God when He is making plans for you. Good plans indeed. He may seem silent but He is still at work in your life. Weep no more; your breakthrough is coming at the end of the silence. God is in charge! Simply ignore His silence and believe in His saving Grace.
