SONGS FOR THE DAY:

 

FIRST SONG: Fourth Man In The Fire by Johnny Cash

 

Refrain:

 

They wouldn’t bend

They held onto the will of God so we are told

They wouldn’t bow

They would not bow their knees to Idols made of gold

They wouldn’t burn

They were protected by the Fourth Man in the fire

They wouldn’t bend

They wouldn’t bow, they wouldn’t burn.

 

Now the prophet Daniel tells about

Three men who walked with God

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

Before the wicked king they stood

And the king commanded them bound and thrown

Into the fiery furnace that day

But the fire was so hot that the men were slain

That forced them on their way.

 

Refrain:

 

Now when the three were cast in and the king rose up

To witness this awful fate

He began to tremble at what he saw

In astonished tones he spake

Did we not cast three men bound

Into the midst of the fire

Well, Lo, I see four men unhurt

Unbound and walkin’ down there;

 

There’s Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

And the fiery coals they trod

But the form of the Fourth Man that I see

Is like the Son of God

KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION

 

*Today, we are KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION!*

 

Enough is enough! 

 

There are certain situations that people find themselves that it is only the Hand of God that can bring them out.

 

Israel was in bondage in Egypt, under the rule of Pharaoh. If God did not step in, there would have been no deliverance. Pharaoh was just too strong.

 

David found himself in miry clay; the more he struggled to be free, the deeper he sank. If God did not step in, there would be no escape.

 

Lazarus was sick unto death. If the Lord failed to step in, Lazarus would have remained in the grave, and that would be the end of the story.

 

In 2 Kings 4, a poor widow owed so much money, the creditors came to take her two sons in lieu of the money owed. If God did not intervene, there could be no hope anywhere.

 

In Acts 12, Simon Peter was locked up in prison, to be soon beheaded by Herod, like he did with James. If God did not intervene, Peter’s untimely demise would have been history.

 

There are so many situations in our lives when we need the supernatural! We need an overhauling from Heaven!

 

*WHEN DO YOU NEED A DIVINE INTERVENTION?*

 

  1. When you are boxed in and there is no way out.

 

  1. When there is no human solution to a problem.

 

  1. When doctors have written you off.

 

  1. When friends have written you off.

 

  1. When you are owing everybody around you and no money is coming in.

 

  1. When death is staring you in the face.

 

  1. When you are at zero hour and have been written off.

 

  1. When mockers are gathered around you waiting for evil expectation.

 

  1. People are asking where is your God

 

  1. Powers of darkness seemingly are having an upper hand.

 

  1. Shame and disgrace is staring at you. Apostle Paul in Acts 28:3

 

  1. When your life is following an evil pattern.

 

*WHAT IS THIS DIVINE INTERVENTION?*

 

  1. When there is a sudden movement of God upon your situation and challenges.

 

  1. When God fights for you and your enemies begin to destroy themselves.

 

  1. When God stretches His hand from heaven to act on your behalf.

 

  1. Angelic interventions – divine messengers from heaven.

 

  1. Unexpected signs and wonders Malachi 3:1

 

  1. When God does the unusual and uncommon

 

  1. Miracles that come up when you have given up

 

  1. Move of God that shows God as the All Sufficient God, El Shaddai, The God that is more than enough in every situation.

 

  1. When God comes from an unexpected quarter at an unexpected time to help you.

 

  1. When God moves beyond human understanding.

 

  1. When God comes in through the back door when you were expecting Him at the front door.

 

*HOW TO PROVOKE DIVINE INTERVENTION:*

 

  1. Be sold out for God.

 

  1. Kill all anxiety and worry (John 14:1)

 

  1. Exercise violent faith (1 King 18:41)

 

  1. Exhibit Holy violence like Jacob in his encounter with the angel “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

 

  1. Be tenacious like the Syrophoenician woman Matt 15:21-28

 

  1. Be a prayer addict.

 

  1. You must be a woman of the Word.

 

Oh my! Glory! 

 

Divine Intervention!

 

B.U.D, shout, D-I-V-I-N-E I-N-T-E-R-V-E-N-T-I-O-N!

 

Let us look at our text for today very quickly: Daniel 3:23-30 (KJV)

 

23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

 

24 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.

 

25 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.

 

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.

 

27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.

 

28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

 

29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak anything amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

 

30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.

 

 

The case of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego was so hopeless! Who could have brought them out of this? No one, nothing! 

 

You might expect a fully persuaded attitude from the trio would cause a breakthrough. Not necessarily, though. When Nebuchadnezzar heard Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego’s words of defiance, he did not back down either. He turned up the pressure. Things got even hotter (Daniel 3:19).

 

Things may be heating up in your life – delay, sickness, mental illness, family problems, lack, spiritual failure etc. You took a stand for God but things just got worse. You found yourself staring down at a fire. A fire like none you’ve seen. You thought God would save you from the fire. You prayed God would save you from the fire. But it remains. 

 

Don’t despair. Because when the devil turns up the heat, God does too.

KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION

 

Nebuchadnezzar made the fire so hot it killed some of his strongest soldiers (Daniel 3:22). Fire is deadly – for some. But you will not be truly burned. If you are fully persuaded of the promises of God, you will not be destroyed.

 

You expected the miracle outside the fire. You thought God would save you before things went that far. But for you, the miracle is in the fire.

 

KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR FOR DIVINE INTERVENTION

When Nebuchadnezzar threw Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego into the fire, their chains broke, Jesus walked with them, and they did not smell of smoke (Daniel 3:24-27).

 

When you walk through the fire, chains will break. Satan has used your situation to keep you living a small and contained life. No longer! Chains break in the fire.

 

According to the promise of Isaiah 43, Jesus will walk with you in the fire. Whatever the trouble or trial may be, you will have a tangible sense of his presence. Jesus reveals himself in the fire. Watch for deeper revelation and worship experiences in your life now in that fire because you are coming out of it untouched! You shall not be scorched! 

 

When Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego exited the fire, they received a promotion. King Nebuchadnezzar saw the goodness and favour of God in their lives and promoted them in his worldly kingdom (Daniel 3:30).

 

The fire may have been your greatest test, but on the other side you will see promotion. You will experience spiritual promotion, for fire always refines. You may also encounter physical promotion in your job and experience greater favor with those you know. Others will recognize the goodness of God through your faith. 

 

If the fires of life are threatening, take heart. The miracle of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego is a miracle for you too. Be fully persuaded. Believe the promise, so when the pressure increases, you receive protection and ultimately promotion. 

 

Don’t give up. Your miracle is in the fire!

 

*SHALL WE PRAY?*

Where do you need Divine intervention in your life right now?

 

That area that you know that only God can fix for you- begin to write them down in your journal.

 

Gloooooraaaaayyyyy to God ALMIGHTY! 

 

Let us move to our second song for today. 

 

It is titled *‘Another in the Fire’ by Hillsong United*

 

There’s a grace when the heart is under fire

Another way when the walls are closing in

And when I look at the space between

Where I used to be and this reckoning

I know I will never be alone

 

There was another in the fire

Standing next to me

There was another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

Of how I’ve been set free

There is a cross that bears the burden

Where another died for me

There is another in the fire

 

All my debt left for dead beneath the waters

I’m no longer a slave to my sin anymore

And should I fall in the space between

What remains of me and this reckoning

Either way I won’t bow to the things of this world

And I know I will never be alone

 

There is another in the fire

Standing next to me

There is another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

What power set me free

There is a grave that holds no body

And now that power lives in me

There is another in the fire, oh

There is another in the fire, whoa

There is another in the fire, whoa

There is another in the fire, oh

I can see

 

And I can see the light in the darkness

As the darkness bows to Him

I can hear the roar in the heavens

As the space between wears thin

I can feel the ground shake beneath us

As the prison walls cave in

Nothing stands between us

Nothing stands between us

 

There is no other name but the name that is Jesus

He who was and still is, and will be through it all

So come what may in the space between

All the things unseen and this reckoning

And I know I will never be alone

And I know I will never be alone

 

There’ll be another in the fire

Standing next to me

There’ll be another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

How good You’ve been to me

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

I can see the light

 

And I can see the light in the darkness

As the darkness bows to Him

I can hear the roar in the heavens

As the space between wears thin

I can feel the ground shake beneath us

As the prison walls cave in

Nothing stands between us

Nothing stands between

 

There’ll be another in the fire

Standing next to me

There’ll be another in the waters

Holding back the seas

And should I ever need reminding

How good You’ve been to me

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

 

Count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be, sing it again

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

I’ll count the joy come every battle

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be

*KEEP PRAYING AS THE SPIRIT LEADS YOU*

 

*PRAY UNTIL HIS PRESENCE IN YOUR MATTER IS CONFIRMED IN YOUR SPIRIT.* 

 

*SING SONGS OF PRAISES TO HIM BECAUSE HE HAS DONE GREAT THINGS. HALLELUYAH!*

 

*YOU CAN ROUND OFF WITH THIS POWERFULLY INSPIRING SONG BELOW TITLED ‘FOUR DAYS LATE’ BY KAREN PECK*

 

The news came to Jesus, please, come fast

Lazarus is sick and without Your help he will not last

Mary and Martha watched their brother die

They waited for Jesus, He did not come

And they wondered why

 

The deathwatch was over, buried four days

Somebody said, He’ll soon be here, the Lord’s on His way

Martha ran to Him and then she cried

Lord, if you had been here, You could have healed him

He’d still be alive

 

But You’re four days late and all hope is gone

Lord, we don’t understand why You’ve waited so long

But His way is God’s way, not yours or mine

And isn’t it great, when He’s four days late

He’s still on time

 

Jesus said, Martha, show me the grave

But she said, Lord, You don’t understand

He’s been there four days

The gravestone was rolled back, then Jesus cried

Lazarus come forth, then somebody said

He’s alive, he’s alive (he’s alive)

(He’s alive, he’s alive)

 

You may be fighting a battle of fear

You’ve cried to the Lord, I need You now

But He has not appeared

Friend don’t be discouraged

‘Cause He’s still the same

He’ll soon be here, He’ll roll back the stone

And He’ll call out your name (call out your name)

 

When He’s four days late and all hope is gone

Lord, we don’t understand why You’ve waited so long

But His way is God’s way, not yours or mine

And isn’t it great, when He’s four days late

He’s still on time (He’s still on time)

God, it’s great, when He’s four days late

He’s still on time (He’s still on time)

(On time)
