Reading: Daniel 3:19-27 NIV
[19] Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual [20] and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. [21] So these men, wearing their robes, trousers, turbans and other clothes, were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace. [22] The king’s command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers who took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, [23] and these three men, firmly tied, fell into the blazing furnace.

Thought for Reflection: Ok, so if you don’t know this story then you might say that God has let go of his servants despite their faithfulness. There are some moments when it seems as if the rescue has not come, but still look to God because he never forgets us!

Prayer: Light of the world, you stepped down into darkness. Open our eyes, make us see.
