17 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.
18 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.
What if God does not answer your prayers? What if God does not come to your aid? Will you still serve him? Will you still claim that he is your God? The answer had better be yes. The answer had better be that no matter what you will still bow down to God and proclaim his glory. The three Hebrew children knew this. They knew that even if God did not come to their rescue, they would still bow to only him. It is time we decide that no matter what we will serve God. It is time that we decide that even if we lose everything, we will still serve God. No matter what is thrown at you, no matter what you are threatened with, and no matter what you are facing continue to stand strong on the word of God and refuse to bow before anything else.
