You may not think that today's blog topic is a way to "prepare the way of the LORD" but I believe it is and we can learn a lot from this biblical account.

True, devoted worship to our God gets His attention. Faith is the currency of heaven. It says that without faith, it is impossible to please God.

Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

I believe the faith and resolve of the Hebrew boys in Daniel chapter 3 pleased God and prepared the way for the coming of the LORD into their situation. They did not bow to another, they believed and stood at all costs!

The Lord faithfully answered.

In this account we see where Nebuchadnezzar's own plans turned on him, losing even some of his own men in the fire. Eventually as we read on into Daniel chapter 4 and 5 we see this evil king driven out and he eventually praises God. Yet another evil king follows but he is slain. God warned them and the writing was literally on the wall.

Let's read and talk about it here and see how that mirrors our lives on earth these last three years.


Daniel and his Hebrew brothers understood an evil type of control of narcissism and idol worship under the rule of the Babylonian system with Nebuchadnezzar. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace because they wouldn’t bow.

They wouldn’t take a knee.

They wouldn’t: “sit down.”

They would not bow!

Daniel 3:18 NKJV

But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up."

There was a resolve in these Hebrew young men who were of great excellence, and had the spirit of God with them. They had a resolve to stand, not waiver, not bow. They did not compromise what they believed in.

They did not compromise who they worshipped. They did not compromise in any way, and it got them thrown into the fire.


The heat was turned up…BUT GOD!

We are coming up on three years of when the thief exposed himself and we watched with our own eyes as he hijacked and sabotaged a critical election in our nation.


Another critical decision is coming up. Don’t think a year is that far away. Start praying NOW! The heat is already being turned up in our nation and it continues to be turned up on President Trump.

We have to know that Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did not know how the situation with the fiery furnace would end but they had faith, trust and hope. They believed in their God and they would not bow.

They stood.

They endured.

They waited.

He answered!

Think about that for a second, they did not know the fourth man in the fire was going to show up. They did not know the Lord would come into the fire with them. We don’t even know if they had these types of experiences personally before this. This was a fiery encounter at its finest.

But God!

Because of their resolve.

Because of their devotion.

Because of their faith and worship in the one true living God, HE, GOD ALMIGHTY did not fail them.


We have to believe that HE will continue to show up for us in the midst of the fire. Seven is a divinely perfect number! It’s a glorious number. God is in the fire with us!

Don’t underestimate the power of God to show up within our fiery furnace! He will encounter us with His glory and His Deliverance. We must continue to stand in Jesus’ name.
