Dan 3:12..."There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshac and Abednego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up."

It is pertinent to explain the background of these three Hebrew men in Babylon so you will appreciate and understand the choices they made to stand up and stand alone for God. They were king Nebuchadnezzars right hand men. It was not a joke to become Governors in a foreign land where they were supposed to be slaves. Here, they had the ear of the king, they live in official quarters, I guess they have official vehicles, staffs at their beck and call and all the apparatus and pecks of office. In short, they were important members of the kings cabinet.

By the kings decree, they have to make a choice between the enjoyment of the office they hold, the favour they enjoy from the king, or the choice of God's calling. I challenge you today, are you ready to be on the Lord's side when there is a conflict between the enjoyment and luxury of the position you have attained in life, or the call to stand for your faith and with God? Even if there is a possibility you will loose everything your present status confers on you, are u ready to stand up for God?

Brother and Sister, a whole lot in this generation (christians) have sold their souls to the devil because of monetary gratification & power. Where are the Shadrac, Meshac and Abednego of this generation? Christians are ready to compromise at the drop of a coin...what a pity! I want you to know that you don't stand up for God and be a looser. When you stand, what you do will stand the test of time because He is not a man that he should lie or the son of man that He should repent. God is still looking for remnants who can stand like those three Hebrew men. Are you one of them?

Declare it loudly; Father,nothing will take me away from making the choice to stand for you.
