So the last couple of weeks have been hard on me, both physically and spiritually.
I was supposed to go to Europe for a walk with my sister. However, I had my knee and other medical issues that kept me from the trip. The first week that I was supposed to be there was hard, my heart hurt every time I thought about it. I asked God many times why this happened.
I do not have the answer but like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, I had to say, even if I can’t go God is still God.
Trusting in God’s omniscience , all knowing, is the only thing I can do.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (Hebrew names Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah) are figures from the biblical Book of Daniel, primarily chapter 3. In the narrative, the three Hebrew men are thrown into a fiery furnace by Nebuchadnezzar II, King of Babylon for refusing to bow to the king’s image. The three are preserved from harm and the king sees four men walking in the flames, “the fourth … like a son of God”. They are first mentioned in Daniel 1, where alongside Daniel they are brought to Babylon to study Chaldean language and literature with a view to them serving at the King’s court, and their Hebrew names are replaced with Chaldean or Babylonian names.
If you are having a tough time and asking God why! I encourage you to remember God wants the best for us. Paul talks about that in Romans 8:28 .
27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 ¶ And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
