" If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up."
How refreshing to read of a man who respectfully refused to commit adultery against our God. Nebuchadnezzar was trying to force a man of God to be unfaithful to his God. Daniel’s love was unconditional, not based on deliverance from the fire. Daniel was not delivered from the fire; he was delivered from the destruction. We know from the account recorded in scripture Jesus went into the fire with Daniel and his friends. In a world full of adultery and divorce, may God raise up men who will remain faithful to Him in the fires of life. If they remain faithful to Him, they will remain faithful to their wives and children. May the same be true of women.
In His love.
The miracle of a seed! Beautiful blossoming of an apple tree I had the privilege of gazing upon while running.
