The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Step Out And Speak Out

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego replied to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give you an answer concerning this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.'” Daniel 3:16-17 (NASB)
The faith and boldness of the three Hebrews should impress us deeply. The king’s sense of wonder at their deliverance from the flames should reverberate in our minds (Daniel 3:24-25).
It was not hard for the God who created the heavens and the earth to deliver three men, created in His image, out of the furnace of fire. When we believe in God–the sovereign, almighty God of gods and Lord of kings–we have no trouble believing that He could allow three men to live in a fiery furnace.
This story should inspire us to step out and speak out for the Lord. We should imitate the Hebrews’ determination to be true to God whatever the consequences. Then we may well be able to declare out of our own experience, “God is indeed able to deliver those who trust Him.”
Those who live by faith in God will never be forsaken by Him.

    This is so true, but I often fail in this area. I don’t know if I’d be able to stand up to persecution.

  2. I love this “no matter what” faith!
