Unlimited trust in God

Originally written in Portuguese, this article first appeared in the February 2014 Portuguese, French, German, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

The Bible is full of stories of people overcoming life-threatening situations by unreservedly trusting God. In one of these stories, the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, commanded that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego be cast into a burning, fiery furnace because they refused to fall down and worship a large image of gold. These three men remained steadfast in worshiping only the one God (see Daniel 3:1–30).

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were bound when they were thrown into the furnace. However, the king was astonished to see them walking in the midst of the fire, unbound, and completely unharmed. The king commanded that they come out of the fire, and acknowledged God’s power to save those who trust Him, and he “promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon” (Daniel 3:30).
