God's Hand Not Too Short

We humans tend to sell God short. We underestimate his ability to provide, his ability to help and save, even his interest in our lives. This lack of confidence even dates back to Bible times, even with those considered to be loyal and faithful men such as Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah.

One instance of outstanding faith was that the three men (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego) whom a king threatened with execution by being thrown into a burning furnace. Most people would accept that anything thrown into a hot fire will be instantly consumed, especially human flesh. So these three men’s response showed a depth of confidence that most would deem credulity. Yet, God did indeed save them. They were able to “walk about” in the fire, completely unharmed.

Underscoring the need to have ultimate confidence in God, Paul wrote that there is absolutely nothing that can stop or interfere with whatever God’s intentions are for a specific situation as well his general purpose for mankind and earth.
