No Matter What

 There is a song on the radio entitled "No Matter What" by Kerrie Roberts (YouTube it).  This is a song based on the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Bible.  Basically, these guys were were being forced to bow down and worship the King.  When they refused, the King told them they would be burned alive in a fiery furnace.  This is where it gets good. 
"They replied, 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.  But even if he does not, we want you to know that we will not bow to you."  -Daniel 3:17-18  (read all of Daniel 3 for the full story)
WOW!  Do you have that much faith?  Most people these days are afraid to commit to anything without a safety net, let alone risking their life for their beliefs.  I mean how many times in life have you been able to say that about God?  I have faith that _______ will happen, but even if it doesn't, I will continue to serve Him and believe.

How many times in life have you been able to say this about your family?  I have faith that my parent/child/sibling/spouse will succeed and make wise decisions, but even if they don't, I will continue to love, support, and encourage them.
It's the "no matter what" and the "but even if He doesn't" moments in life that you will remember. 

Do you rely on faith or your own reasoning?  How much faith do you have?
