Time with God - Oct. 29, 2012
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.(vv. 17-18)
Later, after God delivered them, King Nebuchadnezzar said, “Therefore I make a decree that any people, nation or tongue that speaks anything offensive against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego shall be torn limb from limb and their houses reduced to a rubbish heap, inasmuch as there is no other god who is able to deliver in this way”(v.29).
Are you in a desperate situation that you can’t get yourself out of? God is able to deliver you if you will put Him first in your life!
If you are in that situation because of ungodly choices you have made, God may allow you to experience consequences of your choices. But if you put God first in your life, you will come out of the darkness and into the light of God. God will walk with you and guide your life into a place of blessing.
It has been my experience that God always steps into a situation when I completely turn the situation and myself over to Him.
