“But if not…”
Such a powerful phrase uttered by Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in a time of great trial. The King, telling them to bow to the idol, expected them to give in rather than face the flames of the furnace. But their response? Trust and faith in God.
“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. But if not, He is still good.”
Basically these men were saying, “The situation might look hopeless and we pray God will save us. But if not, we will still be faithful.”
The powerful testimony of these men still has the power to teach us today. God did protect those men from the flames, but they were prepared even if He didn’t. They knew they served a God who was greater than any king.
While God doesn’t always promise to save us from the flames, He has promised to be with us as we walk through the fire— and either to rescue us in this life, or through death for our eternal salvation.
That’s both comforting and scary, right? Those brave words sound amazing, but I’m a little nervous when it comes to getting my own hair singed. 🙂
Lord, give us confidence in your words. Forge courage for us in the midst of a hostile world. Steel our nerves for long, hard days of quiet faithfulness. Resolve our hearts to follow you in momentous decisions and small choices. Make us brave in all we do.
Then, when the day of testing comes, we can bravely go in the fire and know that whether we live or die, we serve a God like no other—a God who is able to save.
“But if He does not, we will serve Him still.”
