 The Topic of Our Daily Bread For 4th May 2021 is “Fueled by Fire”

Bible in a Year: 1 Kings 16–18, Luke 22:47–71 

Memory VerseDaniel 3:17–18

If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us . . . . But even if he does not . . . we will not serve your gods.

Today’s Scripture & Insight: Daniel 3:13–18, 25–27

Whether the image Nebuchadnezzar set up (Daniel 3:14) was of the king himself or a representative of a deity, anyone who dared to disobey his order would be punished.

His pride was clear from his arrogant claim: “If you do not worship [the image], you will be thrown immediately into a blazing furnace.

Then what god will be able to rescue you from my hand?” (v. 15). However, he didn’t take into consideration that the God of gods would fight on behalf of His people (see also 2 Kings 18:32–33).

ODB MESSAGE FOR TODAY

When two firefighters, weary and sooty, stopped at a restaurant for breakfast, the waitress recognized the men from the news and realized they’d spent the night battling a warehouse fire.

To show her appreciation, she wrote a note on their bill, “Your breakfast is on me today. Thank you . . . for serving others and for running into the places everyone else runs away from. . . . Fueled by fire and driven by courage, what an example you are.”

In the Old Testament, we see an example of courage in the actions of three young men: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (Daniel 3). Instead of obeying the mandate to bow down to a statue of the Babylonian king, these young men courageously showed their love for God through their refusal.

Their penalty was to be thrown into a blazing furnace. Yet the men didn’t back down: “If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not . . . we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold” (vv. 17–18).

God did rescue them and even walked with them in the fire (vv. 25–27). In our fiery trials and troubles today, we too have the assurance that God is with us. He is able.

Reflect & Pray
When have you felt God’s presence during a difficult trial? What gives you confidence to press on when challenges come?
Almighty God, thank You for being with me in the fire and for comforting me with Your presence.
