Loving God Unconditionally

Daniel 3:16-18 (KJV)
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, ...  If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.  But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

The passage above is the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; three young Israelite slaves in a foreign land whose love for God was sincere, genuine and unconditional.
These young men loved God even when it meant death. They believed that God is able to save and deliver them from the hands of Nebuchadnezzar; but also had it in mind that even if God did not save them, their love and loyalty to Him will not change.

Too many a times, many persons only love God when things are rosy and their prayers are being answered. What if God does not show up to rescue you from that trouble, will you still love Him? When it appears all things are working together against you and your prayers and fastings seem unanswered, can you still speak like Job that said "though He slays me yet will I praise Him" (Job 13:15)

That is the level God wants us to attain. He desires that we love Him unconditionally just as He loves us unconditionally.

And guess what? When we finally come to that point of loving God unconditionally even if nothing seems to be working, He always shows up. He showed up in the case of the three Israelites; He showed up in the case of Job and He will surely show up in your case. Don't give up on God but rather give in to Him. Don't lose hope, don't lose faith, don't, throw in the towel, don't curse God; just love Him despite all the trials and temptations and watch Him show Himself strong in your life.

Go into today knowing that God loves you unconditionally. He deserves your unconditional love as well.

Prayer: Father, help me to love you even when it doesn't seem convenient, in Jesus name. Amen.
