Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

even if

I was listening to “Even If” by MercyMe and my thoughts went to the 3 Hebrew children in Daniel 3.

16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

God is able and He will deliver but Even If He doesn’t….

Even if He doesn’t — He is worthy to be trusted. He is worthy to be praised. He is God! His ways/thoughts are so much higher than what we can comprehend. (Isaiah 55:9)

Notice what they said to the king before this. “We do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter.” I have learned that lesson also. The Lord is my defense. (Psalm 118:14) I do not need to defend my actions when I am walking in obedience to His Word.  You do not need to defend your actions when you are walking in obedience to His Word.

 

mercyme

My hope is You, Lord.

It is well with my soul

til next time
