4Then the herald loudly proclaimed, ‘Nations and people’s of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5 as soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.
While the enemy is saying fall down this problem is to great,you cannot handle this! We must do as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, did,they “stood up”,they did not bow down even though the pressure was on. Their mentor Daniel was a God-loving and God-fearing man,he was approached by the enemy as well : Daniel
6 So these chief ministers and satraps went as a group to the king and said: ‘May King Darius live for ever! 7The royal ministers, prefects, satraps, advisors and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any god or human being during the next thirty days, except to you, Your Majesty, shall be thrown into the lions’ den.
Daniel knew what was being said he was aware of the scheme,and yet Daniel “got down” he did not allow what the enemy said move him at all :
10Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened towards Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before.
Jesus,our great and awesome Saviour,knew,He knew what was required of Him and yet He came to planet earth,“Hallelujah”!
14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon.
‘Here is your king,’ Pilate said to the Jews.15But they shouted, ‘Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!’‘Shall I crucify your king?’ Pilate asked.‘We have no king but Caesar,’ the chief priests answered.16Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
After all Jesus went through for us,even being humiliated beyond measure,He was called the devil.Yet Jesus “hung in there” for each of us to be totally free and to have peace,joy,mercy and to be forgiven of all of our sins.
6‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
He has risen from the dead! Wow! What a message,we should stand still,and wait on God,we must get down and stay in prayer and we cannot give up, Because He Lives we can and will make it through . Don’t give up because of the difficult places you’re in,Jesus is aware of where you are every moment of the day. Your needed answers are on the way,do not give up.
Love in Christ Pat
