We unsettle inconsolable things when we act as if there is something beyond them whose power could bypass them, overcome them, and could reach us in spite of them. This is the unnerving little power that God revealed through Daniel, who, when faced with death or denial of his faith, chose death. God could save him, Daniel said. But even if God chose not to, God was still God and Daniel was still his, and not even death can change that (Dan. 3:8-16).
