Today’s Text Daniel 3:14-17
“Relationships That Position You for a
1. Relationships with people who have obedience
to God can position you for a major turnaround.
Verses 16, 17
“Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego answered and said
to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give
you an answer to this question. 17) If we are thrown into
the fire, our God Whom we serve is able to save us from
it. And He will save us from your hand, O king.” (NLV)
Its great to have great friends that positively influence each other to stay true to themselves and to God.
2. Relationships with people who have confidence
in God can position you for a major turnaround.
“But even if He does not, we want you to know, O king,
that we will not serve your gods or worship the object of
gold that you have set up.”(NLV)
3. Relationships with people who have experience
with God can position you for a major turnaround.
“Then King Nebuchadnezzar was very surprised and
stood up in a hurry. He said to his leaders, “Did we not
throw three men who were tied up into the fire?” They
answered, “That is true, O king.” 25) He said, “Look! I
see four men loose and walking about in the fire without
being hurt! And the fourth one looks like a son of the
gods (or the Son of God)!” 26) Then Nebuchadnezzar
came near the door where the fire was burning, and said,
“Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego, servants of the
Most High God, come out! Come here!” So Shadrach,
Meshach and Abed-nego came out of the fire.” (NLV)
I know my friends and I learn from each others' experiences with trials and obstacles and I can really say its so much easier going through a trial when you have witnessed your friends go through it with so much faith and trust in God to handle their situation.
