Trust God

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were faithful Hebrew men who were captured and taken to Babylon to serve the king. Daniel, chapter 3, tells us that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon built a very tall golden idol. He said that all people in Babylon had to bow down and worship the gold idol. If someone did not worship the idol, he would be thrown into a very hot furnace.

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego trusted God and served Him. They refused to bow down and worship the gold idol. So the king had them thrown into a hot furnace. The fire was so hot that the soldiers who threw them into the furnace were killed!

But God protected the three men. Daniel 3:27 tells us what happened to them. “When they came out, the satraps, prefects, governors, and royal advisors crowded around them. They could see that the fire had not burned Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Their bodies were not burned at all. Their hair was not burned, and their robes were not burned. They didn’t even smell as if they had been near fire.”

God was with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and saved them from the fire. God will be with you. Trust Him and serve Him today.
