“If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up” (Daniel 3:17–18).
The Lord has spoken to me several times this week through people sharing from the book of Daniel from within the Bible. Hmmm….
A devotion I read called Wisdom Hunters spoke right to my heart this morning! Here’s a little…
Radical trust means you trust God even when He does not come through. He seems quiet, but you still trust God. You do not have a job, but you still trust God. You are sick, but you still trust God. You are lonely, but you still trust God. You are afraid, but you still trust God.
Your wise decision making is based on God’s trustworthiness. You know He is able, but it is still about His timing. And you will not compromise your convictions because you trust Him… But God has a bigger picture in mind. Do not be held captive by your finite knowledge and understanding. You can still trust the One with infinite wisdom and understanding…Trust God with today, and do not worry about the uncertainty of tomorrow. This is radical trust in Christ. If you obsess over fear of the future, you most certainly will define the ambiguity with negative consequences…The cross of Christ and His resurrection are radical. Trust God even if He has not or does not come through. He is still trustworthy; so be radical in your trust!
Pray that we reflect this trust as we wait on God’s timing to build our support team allowing us to begin our ministry in Haiti!
