One of my favorite verses this year comes out of the story of three of God’s people being thrown in a blazing furnace in Daniel 3 (I highly encourage you to read it if you have time). In fact, I think it has been my wallpaper on my phone for a good portion of the year. Each time I read it, I’m challenged in my level of trust in God and obedience to God. This year, a prayer of mine has been, “God, if it is your will for me to move to another school, then please close all other doors and opportunities for me to not be obedient to you.” That requires a level of trust from me that I’m not naturally comfortable with. Which is why I chose to hold onto this verse as a truth of God in my life. “And if not, He is still good.” So although I can praise God that I’m not being thrown into a burning furnace, I still resort to questioning His goodness in terms of meeting my personal wants and desires. But I want to grow in obedience to the Lord, and instead of prioritizing my wants and needs, I want to prioritize His plan, regardless of what it will look like for me. In my life, that looks a lot like repeatedly surrendering my will, plans, and pride at the foot of the cross, and embracing God’s will for my life joyfully.
