Today’s reading is Daniel 3-4.

Putting God in the beginning doesn’t mean He will keep us out of the fire. It does mean He will always be with us in the fire. Whatever you’re facing, remember that. Praise the Lord!

Tomorrow’s reading is Daniel 5-6.

A Word for Our Kids

Hey kids, Daniel’s three friends are amazing to me. One statement really stands out to me. I hope you noticed it too. “If this be so, our God who we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.” Did you catch what they admitted here? They knew God was able to deliver them from the furnace, but they didn’t know He would. They did, however, know they would be delivered from Nebuchadnezzar. Think about that. For them, dying in the furnace was not a bad thing. Whether they lived through the furnace, or died in it, they saw it as deliverance from the wicked king. May we all grow to have such faith.
