Summary: God is in Control
Today I know that Something Good Is Going To Come Out Of This
I know tonight some of you are going through the greatest fire of your life, and it’s the kind that hurts, and the kind that makes you cry, And I know it’s going to sound crazy, but what you ought to be doing is praising God, that you made it (to) the fire,
There are other people that never made it (to) the fire, there are other people that died at the door.
Do you understand what I’m saying? The Kings 3 Most mighty men in his army (died at the door)
It’s a miracle that you made it this far, by all rights you shouldn’t be here. you shouldn’t have lived through that car wreck. The officers on scene said it’s a miracle no one should have come out of that alive.
Somebody else I’m talking to, you shouldn’t have lived through that drug overdose, you had enough drugs in your system to kill an elephant. You shouldn’t have made it, other people didn’t make it but here you are.
I’m talking to somebody right now it’s a miracle that you are not in prison, if you tell the truth, you know that you’re just as guilty and more so than some people that are serving prison terms right now. (But God was merciful to you)
There’s somebody listening to me right now, you know it’s a miracle that you are not in a mental institution somewhere. Other people have gone through a lot less than what you went through and they lost their minds, they went off the deep end.
Your asking right now; what are you trying to tell me Pastor?
I’m trying to tell you that you ought to be praising God that you made it (to) the fire, there are others that died at the door.
(They died where your miracle started.)
These 3 mighty men, could represent the three greatest athletes, the three most popular
The 3 voted most likely to succeed, they had everything going for them, if any body should have made it, it should have been them. But they died at the door.
On the other hand:
No body expected you to make it: but here you are alive, in your right mind, serving God filled with the Holy Ghost and power.
And you want to complain because you’re going through the fire, what you ought to be doing is praising God that you made it (to) the fire.
Somebody shout it out: Thank God I made it (to) the fire.
I could have died at the door, I could have died in that car wreck, I could have died of a drug overdose, I could be serving life in prison, I could have lost my mind.
But God had his hand on me.
I didn’t even know him and he was watching over me, I wasn’t serving him but he was keeping his hand on me. He sent his angels to deliver me.
I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t the strongest one, I wasn’t the smartest one, I wasn’t the most popular one, I wasn’t the one expected to make it, but I made it, and there’s no other explanation but God.
Somebody shout it out again: Thank God I made it to the fire.
Now we’re going to get you out of the fire, but God just wanted to remind somebody that he was with you before you ever got in the fire, and he is not going to leave you now.
As a matter of fact if you are in the middle of the fiery furnace tonight, it is proof positive that you are coming out.
Because the miracle started at the door, and if God wasn’t going to bring you out, you would have died at the door.
You wouldn’t have made it to the fire.
Say to the person next to you: Now I know I’m coming out.
It was a miracle I made it this far, and God wouldn’t have brought me to the middle if he wasn’t going to bring me out.
I know I’m talking to some people right now, that are going through the fire, and I know you’re feeling the heat, and I didn’t come to tell you the fire isn’t real, or that it doesn’t hurt.
I know some of you are going through the greatest fire of your life.
For some of you it’s a financial fire
For some body else it a fire of sickness, and a battle for your health
Somebody else may be going through the fire of divorce, or marriage problems.
Still somebody else is going through the fire dealing with rebellious children
Some one is going through the fire of being falsely accused
