In Daniel 3, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were accused of not worshipping the gods of Babylon and not bowing down to the golden statue that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. They chose to be thrown into a fiery furnace rather than worship false gods and idols. They demonstrated faith in God’s power to deliver and also in God’s ultimate plan. They knew that God could deliver them, but they did not presume that he would. This is a great lesson and an example for us as we plan and pray.
