Daniel 3:13-25
" TRUSTING GOD EVEN IF "
Due to an injury that occurred in 1992, I suffer from chronic pain in my upper back, shoulders, and neck. During the most excruciating and disheartening moments, its not always easy to trust or praise the Lord. But when my situation feels unbearable, God's constant presence comforts me. He strengthens me and reassures me of His unchanging goodness, limitless power, and sustaining grace. And when I'm tempted to doubt my Lord, I'm encouraged by the determined faith of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They worshiped God and trusted He was with them, even when their situation seemed hopeless.
When King Nebuchadnezzar threatened to throw them into a blazing furnace if they didn't turn away from the true God to worship his golden statue (Dan. 3:13-15), these three men displayed courageous and confident faith. They never doubted the Lord was worthy of their worship (v.17), "even if" He didn't rescue them from their current predicament (v.18). And God didn't leave them alone in their time of need; He joined and protected them in the furnace (vv.24-25).
God doesn't leave us alone either. He remains with us through trials that can feel as destructive as Nebuchadnezzar's furnace. Even if our suffering doesn't end on this side of eternity, God is and always will be mighty, trustworthy, and good. We can rely on His constant and loving presence.

G
ratitude is a popular idea these days. Recent reports tell us about significant health benefits for the thankful-hearted, but that should not be the primary reason we express appreciation to God. Instead, we should be inspired by the Lord’s worthiness. When we consider who He is, all He has done, and all He will do, our natural response ought to be deep, heartfelt appreciation.

What the Scripture Says

Read Psalms 138. In this passage, David expresses gratitude to God. We can read it whenever we need to meditate on specific aspects of the Lord’s goodness. In this psalm, David tells us that God:

Is good (v. 2).

Keeps His promises (v. 2).

Listens (v. 3).

Answered prayers (v. 3).

Strengthened us (v. 3).

Cares for the downtrodden (v. 6).

Saves (v.7).

Attends to our concerns (v. 8).

Is everlasting (v.8).



Application and Reflection

We often struggle to be thankful when we’re disappointed or hurt. We hold God responsible for our troubles and easily forget all the ways in which He has blessed us. Psalm 138 reminds us of the many reasons we can be genuinely grateful, without a hint of resentment or bitterness, even in the midst of our hardships.

Are you a thankful person? Don’t just keep your appreciation hidden in your heart. David expressed his praises for his heavenly Father “before the gods” (v.1), so give thanks to God publicly. Let others hear about God’s goodness and be blessed by it as well.

Gratefulness is powerful. It feeds our faith and reminds us of why we can trust God for the future. So whenever doubt and disappointment test your ability to be thankful, turn to the word of God. Let it renew your worn-out spirit, encourage you to persevere in the faith, and shine a light on the hope-giving grace of God.

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him." Colossians 3: 15-17 (KJV)
