But Now . . . an Easter Poem



God trusts some of His children with a walk in the dark. They may even so leave this world. But He will raise them all in the morning. And never do we glorify Him more than when we trust in His Name and stay upon Him, anyhow, come what may, regardless. — Vance Havner

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God. (Isaiah 50:10, ESV)

When you cannot see the whole, the parts make little sense. Only God sees the whole. Therefore we must trust Him with the parts. Only the inner eyes of faith can see beyond the external fog of adversity. We may have answers but we want explanations. Yet, trial and trust must stride together. — Roger Helland

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 MSG)

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted in God that he would stand by them in what they did, that he would either bring them out of the fiery furnace back to their place on earth or lead them through the fiery furnace forward to their place in heaven; and in this confidence they became fearless of the king's wrath and regardless of their own lives. — Matthew Henry
