To let us know you are with us? Even in the fiery and trying times? To feel your presence in a way we’ve never known before? To know you are real?
Why does it have to go that far? Would we realize or appreciate your power as much if you delivered us before we were actually in the fiery furnace or lion’s den? Or is it to test our faith?
Do we love you just because of what you do for us?
Or do we love you for who you are?
Where are you? Are you waiting for our heart to cry out like Job, “Thou, he slay me, yet will I trust in him.”(Job 13:15)
Or maybe you are waiting for us to proclaim like the Hebrew boys facing the fiery furnace that you are able. You are God. You are sovereign. And even if we die, we are not lost.
