This morning we are going to study the life of the three Hebrews that refuse the intimidation of a king that felt he is supreme of all. The Hebrews knew that the situation they found themselves is so critical that they needed to make a sure decision and make known publicly to the king who already had plan there death that one God is more powerful than he is.
"14 Nebuchadnezzar answered them, “Is it on purpose, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you don’t serve my god, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
15 Now if you are ready whenever you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe, and all kinds of music to fall down and worship the image which I have made, good; but if you don’t worship, you shall be cast the same hour into the middle of a burning fiery furnace. Who is that god that will deliver you out of my hands?”
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king, “Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
17 If it happens, 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." Daniel 3:14-17 (WEB)
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego where threatened even the threat of death because of their faith and their God expecting they will subject themselves to idolatry. They rather announce to the king they will never worship any idol apart from the one and only true God whom we believe so much. The king challenge them but they encouraged another and held unto their faith we will not worship idol.
They were not seeing the death ahead of them, neither were they seeing any threat from the king nor were they seeing any fire, all they see is the ability in their God who can save them. They were seeing the miracle at hand, they were seeing God is going to win this community for Himself today, God is going to make this king a member of our church today, God will make more people come to the understanding of His mighty power today, they were seeing our live will become a national testimony, the world celebrate with us today, things will turn around for good today, we are becoming champion and many good they are seeing. All they see are just wonders of the mightier King than Nebuchadnezzar, Almighty Jehovah! Amen! Halleluyah! Glory!
This morning God will give you the courage to overcome every threat in your live in Jesus name. Amen. Whoever stand as a king ruling over your life shall be put to shame in Jesus name. Amen. His kingship over your life shall be dethroned and you shall rule over him in Jesus name. Amen.
Friend don't be intimidated by the situation you fine yourself rather make every use of the situation to better your life. The situation is just waiting for you to speak concerning it and it shall follow your word. Therefore speak to that situation from now and you discover your rather ruling over the situation already. Amen.
Good morning and Happy mid week.
