Daniel’s three associates were Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. The king built a large golden object and made a decree that all people in the kingdom worship this golden image or be thrown into the fiery furnace. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to worship any thing other then their God. The king had them bound and thrown into the fiery furnace. When the king looked into the furnace he saw they were loosed and they were untouched by the fire. He also saw they were accompanied by the Son of God. The king then had them released from the furnace and acknowledged their God as powerful and made a degree that thier God be honored.
Remember, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego all stayed away from the king’s delicacies, ate vegetables and drank water. I bring this up because we live in a world that is full of compromise. The more we compromise ourselves the less likely we are to stand up for who we are in Christ. There are many things out of our control. We can control the foods we eat, the beverages we consume and our choice to honor God in all we do.
How are you doing on the Daniel Challenge so far?
I have been great at my fruits but a little slack on the water and veggies; today I am back to my bag of broccoli for lunch and water not soda.
Daniel 3:25 “ He answered and said, “Lo I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.””
Be fit and be blessed,
