Momentum Men Devotional February 6, 2019

Daniel 3:26b-28 (NIV) So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.  Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego ended up in a fiery furnace for no fault of their own.  They were guilty of refusing to go along with the government orders to worship the giant statue. They would not succumb to peer pressure. They would not go along with the crowd.  Officials from all over the land were required to be there.  Attendance was necessary.  They were among all the big wigs, dignitaries, celebrities, government officials, and rich and famous. It was the place to be.  The celebration would have been like an inaugural parade.  Maybe they didn’t know a loyalty oath was required to reassure the king that those who serve him would remain loyal.

They opposed the culture at risk of losing their job, freedom, even life. Where did they get such courage, such devotion to their faith, devotion to their God?  I am sure it didn’t happen overnight.

  1. Perhaps Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego recognized they were blessed. They survived. They were alive among those taken into captivity when Babylon invaded Jerusalem. After all they could have been left behind or worse, killed.
  2. They knew about Yahweh, the God of their fathers. They probably knew about their history as God’s chosen people: how He rescued them from bondage, gave them strength to conquer the land, and establish their own kingdom under kings like David and Solomon. They had a rich history that was taught in every home as they grew up.
  3. God gave them favor among their caretakers, those responsible for their training.
  4. God had blessed them with great knowledge, understanding, and skill. They were selected among all of the men of the Kingdom and elevated to official status.

They had experience in their faith. So, when it came time for the grand public event, they did not hesitate to say ““King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 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 want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Daniel 6:25-27 (MSG) King Darius published this proclamation to every race, color, and creed on earth:

“Peace to you! Abundant peace!  I decree that Daniel’s God shall be worshiped and feared in all parts of my kingdom. He is the living God, world without end. His kingdom never falls. His rule continues eternally. He is a savior and rescuer. He performs astonishing miracles in heaven and on earth. He saved Daniel from the power of the lions”.

What do we think when we see people in positions of power and prestige? Do we think their prosperity and worldly success is because of God’s favor? Maybe it is, maybe it ain’t. We are not privy to the sacrifice or trouble they endure as part of their responsibility or the difficult experiences they face. We don’t know the road they traveled to get where they are. We can’t see God’s bigger picture (Romans 5:3-5, James 1:2-4).  Watching television and reading the news, we rarely see or hear about the faith of our political, corporate, and community leaders.  Many are people of good will and that’s admirable.  We may not know whether their trust is a life of prayer and devotion to God? Would people of faith hide their faith as they climb up the ladder of success?

Daniel wasn’t the only advisor and administrator under Darius King of Persia (6:1-5, Psalm 73:2-9). Daniel was a man of faith.  He was not ashamed and did not try to hide his faith.  He didn’t push his faith on others, but he didn’t let the world and his circumstances deter him from being obedient and trusting in God and just towards all men.  Daniel’s was a life of prayer and because of his good character he was promoted.

  1. Received Favor (Dan. 1:17-20, 2:14-23)
  2. Sought Fellowship (Dan. 2:17-18)
  3. Praised God (Dan. 2:20-23, 47)
  4. Always Prayed (Dan 6:10)
  5. Brought God Glory (Dan. 6:25-27)

Many of his peers were jealous and envious and would like nothing more than to see him fail (Daniel 3:8, 12, 6:1-5). So they set a trap for him and tricked the king into sentencing Daniel to death.  The king was the one who promoted Daniel and admired him, but because of the law of the land the king could not undue the decision. Daniel was placed in the lion’s den and the pit sealed with a stone. All night the king couldn’t sleep and the next day he rose early to find Daniel unharmed. The plot to destroy Daniel was revealed.  His accusers replaced Daniel in the den and were torn apart as soon as they entered.

God does save. Daniel lived it. The king observed it. The people heard about it. Could it be that God wants to use your life to glorify Him and to cause others to declare your God as savior and rescuer, performer of miracles, and His reign and rule is eternal and never fails.

Don’t wait until a trial or storm to develop devotion and character.

Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it.  (Ezra 10:10)

The spiritual climate in our nation, our families, and in our churches hangs in the balance as many Christians teeter on the edge of spiritual apathy and decay.   We need revival in our country, in our families, and in our churches!

 

While we need God to show up, He is looking for men of God to Rise Up!
