Daniel 3:16-30

What a story! A vain king and some vicious snitches put the heat on three Jewish men–literally. These three, known best by their slave names (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego), had a choice: They could either betray their God by bowing down to the king’s golden image, or be tossed into a blazing furnace. “What god will be able to rescue you from my hand?” the king demanded (3:15).

“We will not bow down,” they said. “Our God is able to deliver us, but even if He doesn’t, we won’t bow down to your image or your gods.” The crowd roared as the king gave the command for them to be bound and tossed into the furnace. Suddenly, the terrifying spectacle changed and the king cried, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods” (v. 25). There was a God who could deliver them, and He was in the fire with them!

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were servants of the Most High God.  No one can snatch His servants out of His hand.
