With 2020 over and 2021 not looking any less chaotic, this mug is here to remind you that He is Still Good. The Lord is still on the throne, nothing is a surprise to Him, and he deeply cares for us.
God CAN rescue us from whatever he wants, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he WILL. Remember the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego? They were about to be thrown into the fiery furnace for not bowing down to King Nebuchadnezzar. He asked if their God will deliver them from his hands. They replied “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted God, whether He chose to save them or if He didn’t. Either way, He is still good. They were thrown into the fiery furnace (that was so hot, it killed the men that opened the doors to throw them in!) and were met with an angel. They emerged, alive, not even smelling of smoke! In this instance, God saved them. Other times in other instances, He doesn’t.
My hope is that this mug is a reminder that whether God shows up right now, or chooses to wait…we know that He is Still Good AND that his timing is perfect. His ways are not our ways and what we’re asking for may not even be what we need. He knows better than us!
So I hope you love our latest mug! It’s a 15oz, bistro-style, camping-speckled plum mug with the text on both sides! An encouraging reminder in these chaotic days.
