No God Can Rescue Like This

READ:  Daniel 3:28 - 30   Then Nebuchadnezzar said, "Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!  He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him.  They defied the king's command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.  Therefore, I make this decree:  If any people, whatever their race or nation or language, speak a word against the god of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, they will be torn limb from limb, and their houses will be turned into heaps of rubble.  There is no other god who can rescue like this!"    

Then the king promised Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego to even higher positions in the province of Babylon. 

King Nebuchadnezzar was so furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that he ordered the furnace be heated 7 times hotter than usual.  Then he ordered the strongest men of his army to bind the three men and throw them into the blazing furnace.   They tied them up and threw them in, fully dressed in their garments.   But because the king had demanded such a hot furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the men in!!!!!   

When the king looked into the furnace he exclaimed, "Didn't we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?"   "Look, I see FOUR MEN, UNBOUND, WALKING AROUND in the fire UNHARMED!   And the fourth looks like a god!"  

The king called the men from the furnace and the crowd noticed that not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched.  They didn't even smell of smoke!   

The King was forever changed - as he said, "Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!  He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him..... There is no other god who can rescue like this!"     


If you are a Child of Jesus - you are a child of the ONE who can rescue you from all harm.   One thing that is important to notice in this scripture is that God did not let his children stand alone in the fiery flames.  HE WAS RIGHT THERE WITH THEM.       It is the very same for you - no matter what you find yourself facing right now - YOU ARE NOT ALONE.   The same God who rescued the three Hebrew men - will rescue you!   The Word of God tells us that the Lord is with us - he is a very present help in times of trouble, he rescues and saves, he heals and restores, he walks with you every second of your day.    

So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”  Deuteronomy 31:6

Thank you Jesus for never leaving me alone.  Thank you that your promises are true.  Thank you for rescuing me from the pits of hell and leading me into a full and abundant life with you.  I ask you to take me through each and every day of my life.    Guide me, direct me, and lead me in the way that is right with you.     Help me to have the faith to walk with you and trust you like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did.     I love you - I always will <3
