Do You Smell Like Smoke?

Do You Smell Like Smoke?

 

I detest cigarette smoke. Exposure to it throws me into a huge coughing fit, along with giving me a horrendous headache. The smell bothers me so much that if I am around it for any length of time, I will immediately change clothes and take a shower upon returning home, simply to get that atrocious smell off of me!

 

At different times of our lives, we will all go “through the fire.” As hard as these times of testing are for us, God knows they are ultimately for our good.

 

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego faced a fiery furnace, yet they never wavered in their trust in God. When they came out of the furnace, they didn’t even have the smell of smoke on them.

 

It can be the same with us when we face our own fiery furnace. If we hold tight to God, cling to his promises, and seek to honor him no matter the cost, we also will come through without the smell of smoke on us!
