Daniel 3:16-18 “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.” Brethren, these 3 Hebrews knew who their God was, and would not now down to a lifeless golden statue. That’s like looking at a crack in the street and comparing it’s greatness to the Grand Canyon! King Nebuchadnezzar probably influenced by the dream God gave, as he was the head of gold, so he made a statue of himself of full gold for others to worship. We need to stay faithful to God’s commandments and never stray from the name of Jesus Christ, no matter the circumstance. Persecution like that of Gaza will come here soon enough. Our heads will be cut off and our bodies burned, but just like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, our confidence is in God to have the final result in all things. Stay humble and prudent. Seek to glorify God in all things. He is our portion forever! Amen.
