May the FOURTH Be With You!

Today I was told by someone, “May the Fourth be with you?” I laughed as I knew what the reference was to—-Star Wars. I’ve never been into the movie series much, but I do honestly hope the Fourth is with you today. I’m not talking about a Star Wars reference or some Yoda expression. I’m talking about the Fourth!

There was a time when 3 men were cast into a giant fiery furnace for not bowing down to a King. They refused to bow down to anyone other than their Heavenly King. Their refusal led to removal from the King and sent into a burning fire. But even as the very people who cast them into the fire died due to the excessive heat, they went in and soon were accompanied by a FOURTH Man!

They remained in the fire unscathed. They didn’t even smell like smoke. They should have been killed in the fire, but the FOURTH was with them!

The King who sentenced them abruptly stood up and said, “Didn’t I cast 3 men into the Fire? Well now, I see 4, and one looks like the Son of God!”

The Fourth is the Son of God! He shows up in the fire. He is present in your need. He is even withstanding the flames of the enemy for you and His presence always brings about a reaction, even from those who may try to persecute you!

Remember this: God will never lead you through something that He can’t bring you out of!

So it’s May the 4th and I pray today and every day of your life this simple prayer:


Glory to His Name! #maythe4thbewithyou #JesusSaves #HeIsWithYou
