“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

You know the situation. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had the option of
bowing to Nebuchadnezzar’s image or being thrown into the furnace. To them
it wasn’t even a decision that required thought. They immediately said they

don’t hear about them, but it happens. They choose Priority One.
May He grant us grace to do the same no matter what the cost.
Resting in Him,
