by Rev Joel Yong
If our God, whom we honor, can save us from a blazing furnace and from your power, he will, Your Majesty. But if he doesn’t, you should know, Your Majesty, we’ll never honor your gods or worship the gold statue that you set up.”
The faith of these men are admirable and something we should aspire to possess.
Note that their faith was not dependent on the outcome of their circumstances – not whether they would be healed, get the job or girl they hoped for, get that big business deal …
They believed in God regardless of what would happen to them in this life.
Is that your faith too?
He is real, and no matter what happens, I will trust in Him.
That is the faith that survives even the fiercest fires- not just the high temperature, searing hot kind – but also the “fires” of persecution, the “fires” of life’s tragedies, the “fires” of injustice in this world.
