Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were remembering the promises of God. They were trusting in God. They believed that God was able to keep them from harm and deliver them from the evil intended against them. They were trusting in God; not in their cleverness or in their strength. They did not back down or worship the idol; they did not lie and say that they had served Nebuchadnezzar’s gods. They stood their ground and trusted God. God delivered Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from their troubles. God will keep His children from harm.

Daniel got in trouble for obeying and worshipping God. Even though his life was in danger Daniel had to trust God and placed his faith in Him. God was always with Daniel, He never abandoned him. Through this trial God was glorified and His name was proclaimed throughout the kingdom.
This is the lesson that we want our kid’s to learn; to learn to trust God. Even when things get difficult God doesn’t abandon us.
