The Fire

"When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flames scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." Isaiah 43:2-3

Everyone has answers
Yet the questions still remain
Is Your Word hidden in my heart really true
Yesterday, today, forever the same

The fire is raging
Nothing seems to be changing
I fight lies to hold on to what I know
You promised You would be in the fire
Your Presence leading wherever I go

The licking flames are so hot
They burn all that is not
A reflection of Who You are
I cry out, the smoke clears
When Your voice so near
Says "Child take My hand, I am here"

Suddenly questions fade from my mind
As hand in hand I walk with You so divine
Fears and frustrations seem to flee
With You standing so close to me
How could I have been so blind

In the fire, amist the flames
Your Word remains the same
Though sometimes it's hard to see
You are always here with me

Father, please help me to stand
And please don't ever let go of my hand
You led me in, now lead me through
In all that I say, in all that I do
Let me be a reflection of You

Only then will this trial serve it's purpose
Only then will this fire so bold
Have value in my life which now aches so much
Only then will this trial turn to gold

"I will bring the one-third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them." Zechariah 13:9
