“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, You Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” (NLT) ( Daniel 3:17-18 )
A lot of times we have our faith backwards. If God does XYZ, then I will believe. But these men had a powerful faith. Even if God didn’t save them from death, they still stood their ground. Why must we have conditions met before we will stick our neck out for God? It comes down to trust. Will you still trust in God even if it appears God didn’t come through?
I HAD NOT:
If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. (NLT) ( Psalm 66:18 )
Have you confessed to God lately? Maybe it’s important you confessed about your attitude and less important about your actions. Sin can sometimes be an action based on a false belief or attitude. Example: “I don’t believe God will fulfill my need, therefore I must steal it from my sister.” When we sin it creates a distance between us and God. Do you have any recurring sins that are because of a false belief?
As always I hope everyone had a blessed day! Today with work we had a few difficulties, but none the less my dad and I figured it out and got the job done. Now on to the next step tomorrow morning. Have a good night!
