Memorise: 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 3:17
Read: Daniel 3:20-25 (KJV)
20 And he commanded the most mighty men that
were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery
21 Then these men were bound in their coats,
their hosen, and their hats, and their other
garments, and were cast into the midst of the
burning fiery furnace.
22 Therefore because the king’s commandment
was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the
flame of the fire slew those men that took up
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the
burning fiery furnace.
24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied,
and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto
his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound
into the midst of the fire? They answered and said
unto the king, True, O king.
25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men
loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they
have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the
Son of God.
Bible in One Year: Ezra 8:24-10:44, Ecclesiastes
It is a precious thing to know the God you serve.
The Almighty God is mighty to save. They that
know their God shall be strong and do exploits.
The three Hebrew boys were able to stand before
the King and the religious leaders of their time to
declare the sovereignty of the Almighty God
because they knew Him well. From the story in
today’s Bible reading, it is evident that there are
tremendous benefits in knowing the God you
serve. The knowledge of the boys delivered them
from the destruction of the King. The presence of
God provided a divine seal of approval that these
were not jokers, but genuine children of God. The
knowledge of God produces strength and courage,
knowing well that there is nothing that confronts
you in life that is beyond God. These boys did not
serve God only because He could save them;
they served Him majorly because of who they
knew Him to be. There are many people who are
only serving God as long as things are happening
in their best interests.
God does not like enemies rejoicing over His
children. Every time there is a situation that
might result in the enemy rejoicing over the
children of God, He will step in to show to the
world that He is mighty to save. This is why I pity
those who mess with the anointed of the Lord.
There are two people to fear in this world: God,
and the man that fears God. The moment you are
a genuine child of God, all your enemies
automatically become God’s enemies. Nobody
can fight God and win, the moment God takes
over the battles of your life, you can confidently
go to sleep with your two eyes closed.
Are you like Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego?
Have you made up your mind that no amount of
threat made towards you in your place of work
will make you compromise your faith? I want to
congratulate you, because if you don’t bow, you
are not going to burn. Don’t ever risk your
glorious destiny in God by worshipping anything
that represents Nebuchadnezzar. Your God is
greater and has full control over all kings and
powers. He has the power to unseat anyone
making life difficult for you. I decree that
everyone who wants you to bow to them at the
detriment of your faith in God will be removed
from their positions without prior notice in Jesus’
Prayer Point: Father, from today, deliver me from
those that are stronger than me in Jesus name.
