“Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel and rescued his servants who trusted in him! They ignored the king’s orders and laid their bodies on the line rather than serve or worship any god but their own. “Therefore I issue this decree: Anyone anywhere, of any race, color, or creed, who says anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego will be ripped to pieces, limb from limb, and their houses torn down. There has never been a god who can pull off a rescue like this.”
I love that he was so quick to recognize the power of God, and I think it’s so funny that he had to issue such a harsh decree, I love that God can step in at just the right moment and win the heart of the strongest critic. Just like Nebuchadnezzar. My prayer is that I would know and trust that God has the power to save. That he is bigger than any obstacle I will face, and any heartache I will ever have. Please God help me to trust you no matter what the cost, I want a faith like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Lord, I want to walk out of the fire untouched and with your name on my lips.
