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 3:17-18 (NIV)
People use this Scripture to back up their claim that you never know what God is going to do. Yes, we do. The three Hebrew children needed deliverance. He delivered them. Daniel needed rescued. He rescued him. We do not see one person who came to Jesus in the Bible that He turned away.
God does not disqualify us based on our behaviour. He qualifies us because of what Jesus did on the Cross.
However, we can disqualify ourselves through our belief that God is not predictable and only heals, delivers and rescues if He is in a good mood, through our belief that we have to earn our blessings.
When we disqualify ourselves, we stop the flow of miracles from reaching our lives.
Don’t qualify yourself according to you but according to what Jesus already did at the Cross. 🙂
