    He said, "Come!" Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and said to him, "You of li...

The Rock and a Hot Place

  • Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king, "Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 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. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up." Daniel 3:16-18 WEB.

    While standing before the most powerful king on earth, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego had to make a tough decision. King Nebuchadnezzar had built a golden idol ninety feet high. Then he commanded everyone in his kingdom to bow down and worship it when the signal was given.

    Obeying the king's order would mean to disobey God's command, to have no other gods except Him. Breaking the king's rule would land them in a white-hot furnace of fire. They were caught between The Rock and a hot place.

    The three Israelites refused and told the king that the God they served was able to deliver them, but even if He did not, they would not bow down to his god. When faced with great evil and certain destruction, they chose to trust God and stood strong in their faith. In the end, God did deliver them, and they were promoted in the kingdom.

    When darkness comes, it's not time to whine, but time to shine. When you have done all that you can, stand and believe that God will take care of the rest. And even if He does not, you will still do what is right. In the end, you will find that God always does what is best for you. So be calm, be patient, God is not dead, and this too will soon pass. Even if you have to go into the furnace, God will meet you there.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for everything that You have done for me. Please help me to stand firm when faced with adversity. Help me make the right decisions and be the one you called me to be. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
