Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego - Daniel's friends in captivity in Babylon - stood up to the great Nebuchadnezzar:
"If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up." (Daniel 3:17–18, NIV)
WOW! They had guts - and why? Because they knew that their God was the real God. He was able to save them, but even if he chose not to save them, they would still serve him and no other. This is a great song for these days, when children have to face so much in this world that is against us as believers in Jesus.
Our God is the real God - that's got to be something to sing about! Our "Daniel" song devotes a verse to his friends:
"Shadrach Meshach and Abednego - Bow down or to the furnace you will go!"
NO! Our God is the real God! Whatever you do, O King,
God can save us from your fire We'll only worship Him!
Our God is the real God! Our God is the real God!
Our God is the real God! We'll only worship Him!
