God Will Deliver You
These three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, had been taken into captivity and were now confronted with bowing down to something other than God. They were told that all they had to do not to be thrown into the fiery furnace was to bow down to a gigantic golden statue. The three men refused to, standing in their faith, and because of this, was thrown into that fiery furnace. God was with the three men in the furnace, as witnessed by king Nebuchadnezzar, because of their great faith and trust in God. They never doubted God and even told the king that their God would deliver them, and He did. You might have things in your life, such as hard times and trials, that you have no control over, but God will give you the peace and comfort you need to walk through the fiery trials of life. He is always with us and always walking with us through those fiery trials. The greatest victory is to have the presence of God with you. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego saw this great victory as God delivered them from the king and the furnace because of their faith and trust in God. Sometimes we miss the greatest blessings when we don't go through the fiery furnace because we either don't trust God or because we ask Him to take away the trials in our life. God gives us victory when His presence is with us and when we have faith and trust in Him through our fiery furnace.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
Daniel 3:16-17 (KJV)
