I need to focus on the fact that God CAN, and quit obsessing over whether or not He will. God CAN work in my present LifeTremor. I want the hurting to end, the puzzle pieces to fit and the ending to be happy. I know that GOD CAN bring all that to pass. But, will He? Or maybe I should ask, what's His will?
That's basically what Daniel's 3 buddies said when they were about to be tossed into the fiery furnace -- God CAN! They acknowledged that they did not know whether or not He would. That was ok with them. They knew that God could -- and that was enough. Scripture tells us:
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 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.”
Today I choose to praise the God who CAN -- whether or not He does.
