You will probably think about this if you ever have cancer. I know I did. God is “able to save”. (Daniel 3: 17) I knew that one word from God would send cancer rushing miraculously away. He is able! Is He willing? A very different question. Shadrach, Meshach and Adednego seem confident of the first and unconvinced about the second. Not unbelieving, just uncertain. “Even if He doesn’t (save us)”, they tell the King, “we will not worship the golden image”. (Daniel 3: 18) A miracle is not always God’s answer. “Some were tortured, stoned and put to death” says the writer of Hebrews of some very faithful people. (Hebrews 11:35-37) To presume that God always wills to intervene in the natural course of disease or difficulty is to end up disappointed and confused. God may or may not save us from death(physical). Whether He does or not has nothing to do with HIS ability, OUR faith, or HIS faithfulness. We trust Him!
