Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Daniel 3:16-18 (KJV)
When the world is demonically and gleefully spinning out of control,
When evil is called good and good evil and reputations are ruined,
When those who stand for Godliness are targeted to be destroyed,
When anger, rage, destruction, and lawlessness is on full display,
When immorality of every type is redefined and legitimized,
When lies, deceit, spin, and attacks on righteousness abound,
When our very spirits groan within us for our Savior to rescue us
from a culture that exalts unrighteousness, and heinous acts of sin,
When Christians are mocked and our Holy God is marginalized and
constantly blasphemed in the public square and not wanted anywhere,
When millions of children are demonically murdered in their mother’s wombs,
When power is more important than faith, hope, love, Godliness and personal holiness,
Father this is when our nation needs to humbly kneel only to you O Lord, repent, and run to thee.
Father this is when our churches need to humbly kneel only to you O Lord, repent, and run to thee.
Father this is when every man, woman, and child needs to humbly kneel only to you O Lord, repent, and run to thee.
Precious Father, Son, and Holy Spirit perhaps when things are falling apart
they are indeed falling together for the next step in your most perfect, Holy,
sovereign plan. So we trust you with all our hearts, our souls, our minds. And
even in the demonically orchestrated chaos, anarchy and mayhem, we will
continue to love, serve, honor, and obey Jesus Christ King of Kings and Lord
of Lords, our Savior, our only hope, our incomparable all in all! And Jesus my
precious Lord and Savior, I will only bow, kneel, and worship thee!
Only thee O Lord! Only to thee!
