He’s Still God

17 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. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up. Daniel 3:17-18

In the context of the above verses, Shadrach, Meshcach, and Abednego were being threatened by king Nebuchadnezzar with being thrown into the fiery furnace for not worshiping him. Their faith was steadfast in God.  So much so, that even if God didn’t come to their rescue they would still be content with that and still not bow down to worship the king. In their eyes, their fate was in God’s hands and not in the king’s.  If they were going to die, they knew it was because of God’s will and no one else’s.  For that reason, they had no fear of the king.

There are many times we often want God to rescue us from something, but it isn’t always His will.  Do you have enough to confidence to stand firm in your belief in Him, that even if He doesn’t show up, He’s still God?  Just because He doesn’t do what you want Him to do, when you want Him to do it, doesn’t make Him any less divine than when you made your request.

He could’ve given Abraham and Sarah children earlier in life.  He didn’t.  He’s still God.

He could’ve rescued Paul in Rome.  He didn’t.  He’s still God.

He could’ve healed Lazarus instead of letting him die.  He didn’t.  He’s still God.

He could’ve removed your affliction.  But He didn’t.  He needed you to grow.  He’s still God.

He could’ve healed your loved one. But He didn’t.  It was their time to relocate into eternity. He’s still God.

He could’ve done a lot of things.  But He didn’t.  It wasn’t a part of His plan or His will.

He’s still God.
