This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Psalm 118:9 (ESV)
Today I want you to know what is possible when you put your faith in God, not man.
The story of Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego is the perfect testimony of trusting God over man. One day, King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold and commanded everyone in the province to worship his gold image. He threatened that those who didn’t worship the image would be thrown into the fiery furnace.
Some Chaldeans told the king that Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego refused to worship his gold image. The king called for the three men and gave them his ultimatum: worship the image or be thrown into the fiery furnace. Because of their faith, they told the king, “Throw us into the furnace, and the God we serve will deliver us!”
Shortly thereafter, the king ordered that the three men be thrown into the furnace. Yet when he peeked inside, what he saw was amazing. God not only delivered them, but they were not harmed in the slightest way. In fact, they didn’t even smell of smoke when they came out.
Astonished at this, the king said, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!” Because these three men put their faith in God and not man, transformation was possible in the heart of another man. God will work in miraculous ways when you trust Him over man.
Tune in today to the Blues to Blessings YouTube channel as I discuss the price we pay when we put our faith in man. But before you do, remember these words: “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.” Psalm 118:9 (ESV)
