Serving in times of trouble.
The three musketeers of faith Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego spoke these words standing outside of a fiery furnace so hot, it roasted the men who were heating it.
It makes me think. It is so easy for me to proclaim the glory of God my life when that glory is not so clearly visible. The hardest thing to do is to praise God when we do not see the rescue...
HOWEVER; we have historical record of the fact that God will not fail. God will be faithful to those who trust and obey. Wether we are rescued from the physical peril we are undergoing, God will always provide rescue. In this life or not; therefore, I will not follow idols (greed, anger, hate, politicians, actors, athletes, teams...) I will follow my ABBA FATHER, My JESUS, and give my self to the prompting and guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT.
"We serve a God who is able to deliver us, but even if he does not, we will not worship other gods who are false!" AMEN !
