We often think of real faith as superseding reality. Miracles do that. Faith, on the other hand, is exercised with the full knowledge of the reality before them. God is the one who does the miracles, we are the ones who exercise faith in the uncertainly with a confidence in God and His love. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were a perfect example. They exercised tremendous faith in God and gave a great testimony of it. They said "No" to worshipping the idol and testified that they knew God would deliver them from the furnace. Then they said, "But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up." They had a strong faith, believing that God was going to deliver them. However, knowing that it is God that makes the final decision and they may die, they still chose to obey God rather than the King. They trusted Him for the outcome. Today, God is able to deliver you from your own fiery furnace. Believe it, live in that belief and trust Him for the outcome.
Dear Father, you know what I am in need of. Please increase my faith. Help me believe you for deliverance. Help me move ahead in faith and trust you with the outcome. In Jesus' name, amen.
