Complete Trust • Daniel 3

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego answered King Nebuchadnezzar, 
"Your threat means nothing to us. 
If you throw us in the fire, 
the God we serve can rescue us 
from your roaring furnace and anything else 
you might cook up, O king. 
But even if He doesn't, 
it wouldn't make a bit of difference, O king. 
We still wouldn't serve your gods or 
worship the gold statue you set up."
Daniel 3: 16-18

Firm, unwavering, steadfast.

Complete faith
that You are able,
that Your way is best,
that You can do what You say You can do.

God, thank You that You are able.
You are high above all the earth and all who are on the earth.
Earthly kings and gods are nothing compared to You.
You made fire and flood, they are nothing compared to You.
Thank you that I can trust you completely with my life.
You may choose to save me from the flames, or
I may be called to walk through them.
But You will always be with me.

Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you.
I've called your name. You're mine.
When you're in over your head, I'll be there with you.
When you're in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you're between a rock and a hard place,
it won't be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
The Holy of Israel, your Savior.

Isaiah 43:1-3

In the same way I was with Moses, 
I'll be with you. 
I won't give up on you; 
I won't leave you. Strength! Courage! 
Joshua 1:5-6
