“But even if he (God) does not (save us), we want you to know O king that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up”. Daniel 3:18

So often today people rely on having other choices. If my marriage doesn’t work out the way I want, I can always get a divorce. If my job doesn’t work out, I can quit and get the dole. But Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had no plan B. If God didn’t come through for them, they had no other options.

Elisha was the same. He killed the oxen and burnt the plowing equipment (1 Kings 19:21). Elisha had no plan B. He wasn’t keeping something that he could go back to if following God became difficult or unpleasant.

When some stopped following Jesus, he asked his disciples if they too wanted to leave. Peter replied “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). At this point Peter recognized that God was his only option. He knew that nothing else was really going to satisfy him even if following God proved difficult at times.

Paul warns us not to be immature and tossed about. We need to have established in our minds and hearts that we will trust God no matter what comes good times or bad. We need to put away our plan B’s and be committed disciples who can be relied upon to keep seeking God in good times and difficult times.
