The Reading for Today: Daniel 3
The faith of the three in the furnace has been “tested as fire and come off safe” (1 Peter 1:7). They have an absolute sense of the power of God in the fire. Their adherence to God alone is as gold; the fire can do them no harm.
May your heart be totally on fire with love for the Lord. Nothing need ever harm you. Perhaps the anger of another is turning up the “heat” in your life. Likely, this includes efforts to manipulate through guilt. It matters not how the adversity comes. Only be true to yourself and faithful to the Lord in the absolute protection God offers you.
Christ has been interpreted as the fourth person among the three; so is the Lord with you as your refuge, your heat shield against “all the fiery darts of the wicked one” (Eph. 6:16).
