Daily Verses : Daniel 3:1 – 30
Key Verses : Daniel 3 : 17- 18 : 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. 18 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 entered the fiery furnace because they did not want to worship the statue of King Nebuchadnezzar, but only wanted to worship the Lord God Almighty – who we know as the Lord Jesus Christ. Their faith and love of the Lord is so amazing. At this very moment there are many children of God who are experiencing suffering and problems because of what they are doing for the Lord – getting fired because they refuse to work on Sundays, not receiving promotions because they do not want to change religions, etc. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s statement shows that the Lord is first in their lives. This was their statement: “Even if the Lord does not deliver us, we will not worship anyone else besides God.” Through this story, we learn that if our focus is only on the Lord Jesus, no matter how big our problems are, the Lord will take care of it for us, Halellujah. Even in the fiery furnace or valley of death – the Lord is with us. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego escaped their problem with glorious victory from the Lord.
When we are bold/brave enough to stand upon the Lord’s truth, then the Lord will fully defend us.
