Through the Fire

January 9, 2019 | Author: | Posted in New Beginnings

Today’s devotional reflection on New Beginnings is about: Through the Fire

4 “When you pass through the waters I will be with you;
    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
    when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
    and the flame shall not consume you.”

    – Romans 6:4, RSVCE | NJB

Through the Fire (New Beginnings Devotional Reflection)

Michael had lived on the same mountain with his father for years. His father had Parkinson’s disease so Michael had moved in to become his father’s caretaker. He loved the mountain and he valued the days he had with his father.

Then one day, a fire broke out on the mountain. A campfire had gotten out of control and become a forest fire. The mountain was becoming more engulfed by the hour so Michael loaded up his father and what would fit into their vehicle.

As they started down the mountain, Michael could see areas of the asphalt had caught on fire. He was terrified of the flames and said, “Dad, I’m not sure if we can get through this.”

“I’m right here,” his father calmly reminded him. “You’re going to be OK. Everything is under control.”

Sometimes, God calls us to leave everything familiar behind us and travel through a fiery path. This could be a loved one’s illness, the loss of a job, or a difficult relocation. But whatever the trial, God is with you. This new beginning might be painful but it will not be victorious over you.

God, help me. I see fire or floods rage around me and
it terrifies me. Help me to remember that just as Michael’s
dad was beside him, You’re beside me. Let me feel Your presence
in the middle of this new beginning.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
