"Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said . . . Be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods" (Dan. 3:16,18).

These were young men. The fact that they were able to display that level of manly courage marvels me. Their story of how they stood the test of time and the deliverance God gave to them is a good example to excite the minds of every believer: steadfastness in holding on to their conviction in the face of death. Let young and old Christians alike learn from their example, both in matters of faith in God and their unwillingness to sacrifice their conviction. This first come by the decision they made in their minds not to defile themselves with the king’s food. They moved a step further too to openly declare their conviction. How many of us have made various decisions concerning our Christian lives, we have so many resolution but have we yet declared them and started working at them? Lastly, they acted out their faith. What are you waiting for? Do you need someone to push you before you move? Probably, most of us are saying we are waiting on God but God is actually waiting on us. It is better to lose all rather than lose your integrity, and when all else is gone, God will still reward your faith. Do God the honour to trust Him when it comes to matters of loss for the sake of His kingdom principles. God will prove that they who "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, shall have all these things added unto them”. Stand by your conviction in God. Let not death, hardships, afflictions, friends and relatives make you lose your conviction in God. You are blessed.

Prayer
Help me Lord to be able to stand by my conviction in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Thought for the day
Can we stand by our conviction when everybody around us is cheating. Meditate on Dan. 3:16-18
