“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”


Even If

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Daniel 3:16-18

Satan is the prince of the air and the prince of the world. He is deceptive and a liar. He wants you to worship the things of this world and not the Creator, Redeemer, Holy God. His deceitful ways are used to convince you to trust in money, possession, wealth and self-reliance more than Holy God. The enemy of God wants you to sit on the fence and be non-committal, not ALL IN for the Lord Jesus Christ who redeemed the world of sin and death.

Are you all in or are you sitting on the fence with God?

Are you willing to believe and trust the Lord Jesus Christ “even if” HE does not deliver you from your current situation or problem? Are you willing to trust the Lord “even if” it will cost you money? Are you willing to believe and trust Jesus Christ “even if” your health problem leads to death? Are you willing to believe and trust the Lord “even if” others may speak against you? Are you willing to believe and trust Jesus Christ death and resurrection “even if” others in your family will mock you? Are you willing to believe and trust Christ “even if” it will cost your job?

Are you willing to trust God’s redeeming love in Christ Jesus by believing HIS promises “even if” your situation looks hopeless yet you know HIS HOPE is in you? Are you ALL in for your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

Even if God does not deliver me from the fiery furnace (or my current or future problem), I want you to know, O king (the enemy of God), that I will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold which represents money, prestige, position, the good life, the self-sufficient life, the life against God, the selfish life in which you (the enemy of God – Satan) has set up for this world. I am a child of God and I know my redeemer lives. I will only worship and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord I submit my mind, my will, my emotions, my body, all control and desires to you. I bind myself to the Truth of your word. I bind myself to an awareness of the power of your blood of Jesus Christ working in my life every day. I bind myself to the work of the cross with all its mercy, truth, love, power, forgiveness and dying to self.
