In the third chapter of Daniel, three men refuse to follow the King’s orders because it contradicts their faith in the Lord. The King has them bound and thrown into the fire. The three men were unafraid. They knew God was able to save them if He so chose. The men should have been burned up immediately, but instead The King says “Didn’t we throw three men in? I see four men, unbound, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”
What a comfort to know God is with us in the fires of life. He loosens the fears that bind us and protects us from the flames. Thank You Lord for being the God who saves!
