“Wherefore glorify you the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea." (Isaiah 24:15)
As believers of Christ, we are expected to show forth the praises of God even in the midst of a fiery furnace. But instead, many are complaining. The same almighty God who fed Elijah in the days of famine, who delivered Daniel from the power of the lions, and who covered Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the burning fiery furnace can do the same for you.
There are people right now who are in un-imaginable and incomprehensible conditions, yet they are glorifying God in the fire. Their songs are not songs of complaints, rather songs that express their faithfulness in yet blessing the Lord at all times, and trusting in Him even in the fire (Psalm 34:1, Job 13:15).
In whatever situation you find yourself in, stop complaining and learn to glorify God in the fire. For even in the midst of the fire, He is still God, and is still good. If you believe this, then you ought to open your mouth and let Him know.
