Daily Devotional
October 31
 
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Daniel 3:16-18
 
In the answer of these three godly men, we see a very important lesson. “God is able to deliver us,” they said. But then they added, “Even if He decides not to, we’re still not going to bow down.” They didn’t doubt God’s power to save them. But they submitted to His will concerning whether He intended to save them. They weren’t doubting God’s ability. They were submitting to His sovereignty.

. . . Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Hebrews 11:33-34

By faith, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego “quenched the violence of fire.” In other words, because they had faith, they weren’t burned. But faith in what? They didn’t have faith in faith. They had faith in their Father.

When we pour out our requests to God and say, “If You decide not to heal me, bring me that financial windfall, or save my business, it doesn’t matter. All I want is your will” - that is true faith. How I pray we can learn this.
