God always confound the wise to protect the faithful


Scripture has taught us that if we are faithful and true to God, He will deliver us from harm and danger. Hence, the reason why David, the Old Testament Patriarch, wrote in Psalm 23, “Even though I walk through a valley of death, I will fear no evil.

The story of the three Hebrew boys depicted in the book of Daniel is yet another example of God building a fence of protection around those who loved Him.

When King Nebuchadnezzar flexed his muscles and ordered three Hebrew boys thrown in a furnace-because, they refused to bow to him or worship his golden image. He thought they would serve as an example for others who disobeyed his orders.

But when the King walked by the furnace, he saw four men in the furnace walking around in the fire. Nebuchadnezzar was naturally confounded. But you needn’t be because you and I will never know what God will do to protect us; all you need to do is trust Him.
