Fear is more than just a feeling triggered by the threat of danger, pain or harm. It is the uncertainty about any outcome. This means that each time a person is unsure or uncertain about the outcome of a thing, he is said to be in fear, but a man of faith is a man of full persuasion.
Imagine being confronted with a fiery furnace situation like the three Hebrew men in our opening scripture today. Would you fret and completely lose it, or would you have maintained the same persuasion as they? They held a conclusion in their hearts that God is faithful no matter what, being fully that even if He does not show up to save them in their circumstance, they would still believe Him as God at the risk of their lives. What an unflinching faith in the face of fear!
In our own lives, we often face situations that challenge our faith. From financial difficulties to health issues, broken relationships, or unfulfilled dreams, situations that test the limits of our faith and threaten to drown us in fear. Yet we can draw inspiration from the example of these Hebrew men who relied on the faithfulness of God and the infallibility of His promise.
This level of persuasion cannot be attained unless by constant meditation on the Word and on God’s promises. Ruminating on His faithfulness in your own life and in the lives of believers throughout the ages will help you to consolidate your faith and give no room for fear to build up in your heart.
Would you love to have a similar testimony of faith? Refuse to change your confession because of transient trials, but maintain a steadfast faith in God by holding on to His word and His promises. He will show up in His awesome power and you will have a testimony.
