This morning I saw that my sister had written the words, “Even if He does not…” on her wrist. When I asked her what it was for she said that it was part of a verse from the book of Daniel. The King was trying to get Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to bow down and worship a golden idol. If they did not worship the idol, they would be burned in the fiery furnace. The three said to the king:
“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. BUT EVEN IF HE DOES NOT, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”
Daniel 3:17-18 (NIV)
Our family is facing some extremely hard times right now where very tough decisions must be made that will change our lives for ever. We are trusting and believing for the Lord to turn this situation around and make it into something wonderful. BUT EVEN IF HE DOES NOT, we will still praise Him and not turn our backs on Him.
