Daniel 3:19-25

Daniel 3:19-25 
  Everything we see is not always the full picture.  This is certainly true today, especially in a world where videos are edited in order to support agendas and details are sometimes omitted. It takes work to determine the entire scope of events.
  King Nebuchadnezzar was accustomed to knowing everything he needed to know.  He was king, after all.  But he failed to grasp there was a greater power than himself.  Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego, through their humility and faith, were vehicles through which God demonstrated a greater power.
  Prayers are not always answered in the way we want.  Events in the world are often beyond our understanding.  We usually have big questions for God.  Just because we don't see or grasp how God is at work, let us work to have a faith that trusts that God is present and at work in the world around us and in our lives and relationships, and may we pray for the Holy Spirit to open the eyes of our hearts to better see the world and God's actions within it.
