Text to Reflect: Daniel 3: 26-30
Daniel 3: 26-30
26 Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the burning furnace door and said: Sadrac, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out and come. Then Sadrac, Meshach and Abednego came out from the midst of the fire.
27 And the satraps, the governors, the captains, and the king's advisers gathered to look at these men, how the fire had no power over their bodies, not even the hair of their heads had burned; their clothes were intact, and they didn't even smell of fire.
28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said: Blessed be their God, of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who sent his angel and delivered his servants who trusted him, and did not fulfill the king's edict, and delivered their bodies before Serve and worship another god than your God.
29 Therefore, I decree that every people, nation or language that says blasphemy against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, be dismembered, and his house turned into a mule; because there is no god that can deliver like this.
30 Then the king magnified Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the province of Babylon.

Jesus in an occasion said that the world would know us by our fruits, also pointed out: you are the light of the world and salt of the earth.
On this occasion we can read the story of three young people: Sadrac, Mesac and Abednego who were confronted by the Nebuchadnezzar king for not submitting to his laws or whims and honoring with faith and perseverance the name of God.

It is obvious that when someone makes a difference in the world through the fruits of the spirit and tries to honor the word of God, someone has to be moved. And in this case we see the performance of a king who is moved through the faith of these three young people, in addition to the miracle that God does for them.
In these verses we can realize that Nebuchadnezzar recognized the power of God and also realized that God worked in his people with salvation and miracles.

When Nebuchadnezzar realizes that the furnace of fire where he had commanded these three young men to be put in, there were not only three, but four, he remained spectator, moved and honored these three young men when he said: Sadrac, Mesac and Abednego, Servants of the Most High God come out of there and come into my presence to contemplate the great miracle that the eternal God has done with you.

In the same way he did not settle for him just to look but he called the governors, satraps, captains and their advisers to see that the fire could not have any power over their bodies.

With this act of power and miracle, Nebuchadnezzar recognized and said: Blessed be their God, who delivered them and took care of their bodies and did not allow them to worship the wrong gods, thank God for keeping their faith.

God is great, keep his word and take care of his children who trust in Him.
