Morning Dew – 21 November 16
 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.  Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought these men before the king.
It’s very true that afflictions will not rise again according to the scripture but will attempt to. The three main characters in our text today were part of the group that was hailed and promoted for helping to solve the King’s problem in Daniel 2. Yet they were accused for not bowing down to the king’s graven image.The truth is that those you once condemned with your preaching and holy life will always look for opportunity to accuse and discredit you. It’s also a fact that the enemy knows your history, the law and whichever you are breaking openly or secretly and will look for any loop hole in the law to condemn you. ( Satan knew that Moses once disobeyed God and contested for his body, Jude 1:9).
This one of the reasons why you have to live above board at all times so you can have the boldness to continually confront the enemy. Know who you are in Christ. If you are for Him, He will be for you. Learn to worship God even when it’s seems that the enemy is winning (Daniel 3:23). Soon God will advertise Himself to the world in your life or in another word, God will advertise you to the world. Note that every affliction you go through is an opportunity to be promoted by God.
I pray that even in that dire situation, you will yet be promoted by God in Jesus name, amen! Good morning and God bless
