Olyott on Daniel 6: "Once more God has not delivered His
servant from trouble, but in trouble, just as
He did with those in the fiery furnace. It was the same with
the apostle Paul ... Yet, in the very context of suffering,
he had become persuaded that there was nothing that could
separate him from his Saviour (Rom. 8:35-39). Ours will be
the same experience. All who want to live godly Christian
lives can be certain of persecution (II Tim. 3:12). It is
simply not true that God undertakes to deliver us from
difficulty and from painful and terrifying experiences. But
it is true that He will deliver us in the difficulty,
even in martyrdom. There is no situation into which we shall
ever enter without Christ. And there is no suffering, even
martyrdom, from which we shall not emerge alive!"
Pink: "Faith endures as seeing Him who is invisible
(Heb. 11:27); endures the disappointments, the hardships,
and the heart-aches of life, by recognizing that all comes
from the hand of Him Who is too wise to err and too loving
to be unkind. But so long as we are occupied with any other
object than God himself, there will be neither rest for the
heart, nor peace for the mind. But when we receive all that
enters our lives as from His hand, then, no matter what may
be our circumstance or surroundings—whether in a hovel, or a
prison dungeon, or at the martyr’s stake—we shall be enabled
to say, ‘the lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places’
(Ps. 16:6). But that is the language of faith, not of sight
nor of sense."
