I've been thinking a lot the past few weeks on the verses in Daniel 3, where the three Hebrew children are standing in faith waiting for God to show up. Their faith is so strong, they tell the King that they believe God will show up and there's no need for them to defend themselves.
But it is that last statement that gets me everytime I read it...
Daniel 3:18: "But even if he doesn't, we still won't worship your gods and the gold statue you have set up.”
Even if He doesn't.
Even if we never see the manifestation of what we fully believe was spoken to us a year and a half ago about our move.
Even if we never see complete healing this side of eternity.
Even if God never gives us exactly what we are praying for, believing for, or what we hope to see in our future, we will still love Him.
