Dan 3:16-18..."Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego answered and said to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand O king. But if not, let it be known to you O king that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the golden image which you have set up'".

We are all familiar with the story of this three hebrew men. My question to you today is; what are you standing up for? These men stood up and stood alone not minding the consequence of the king's decree. A man that would serve God must be ready to dare the devil and stand alone even when others are ready to compromise. Check yourself; in what way have you compromised the gospel of the Lord when faced with dire situation that tend to question your faith in God?

If the three hebrew men had bowed down like others, their names would have gone into the dustbin of history. Rather, history was made because they stood up and they stood alone. The defining moment in the history of your life is that you are alive today, that is, there is an history for you to make. What do you stand for? If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything and everything.

Friend, I call you today, stand up for God just like Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego stood up and they became a reference point till today.

Pray with me; Father, I stand up for you, grant me the grace to still stand.
