    BE STILL, AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. PSALM 46:10. When was the last time you sat with your God and listened? Thank you Father for your strength. Help me see what l can do through you today. The strength of Christ reaches right down into our turmoil and pain. It's there, that we can truly do "ALL THINGS." God always equips us with the armor we need, to stand firm. God will PROTECT ME ALWAYS!

    JP: I think it was the mighty men in verse 20 who were binding Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that died. Somehow the flames got too close to them while trying to toss the three into it in haste and they died.
