          Walking around in the fire. (Daniel 3:25)

When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the furnace, the fire did not stop them from moving, for they were seen “walking around.” Actually, the fire was one of the streets they traveled to their destination. The comfort we have from Christ’s revealed truth is not that it teaches us freedom from sorrow but that it teaches us freedom through sorrow.

O dear God, when darkness overshadows me, teach me that I am merely traveling through a tunnel. It will then be enough for me to know that someday it will be all right.

I have been told that someday I will stand at the top of the Mount of Olives and experience the height of resurrection glory. But heavenly Father, I want more—I want Calvary to lead up to it. I want to know that the shadows of darkness are the shade on a road—the road leading toYour heavenly house. Teach me that the reason I must climb the hill is becauseYour house is there! Knowing this, I will not be hurt by sorrow, if I will only walk in the fire. George Matheson

“The road is too rough,” I said;
    “It is uphill all the way;
No flowers, but thorns instead;
    And the skies overhead are gray.”
But One took my hand at the entrance dim,
And sweet is the road that I walk with Him.

“The cross is too great,” I cried—
    “More than the back can bear,
So rough and heavy and wide,
    And nobody near to care.”
And One stooped softly and touched my hand:
“I know. I care. And I understand.”

Then why do we fret and cry;
    Cross-bearers all we go:
But the road ends by and by
    In the dearest place we know,
And every step in the journey we
May take in the Lord’s own company.
