“Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.” – Daniel 3:29.

Comment:

An astonished King Nebuchadnezzar made this declaration when he saw the power of the Almighty God in the miraculous manner He delivered His servants, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who trusted in Him. The three faithful Jews had been thrown into a fiery furnace at the command of the king, for refusing to bow down to an image against their true faith. King Nebuchadnezzar openly admitted that by this deliverance, the Almighty God “have changed the king's word” hence the new decree as in the text under reference.

The Almighty God uses His angels to give His people protection and deliverance from their troubles at all times, like as He did with the three faithful Jews. King Nebuchadnezzar himself declared: “Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” (Daniel 3:25)  A similar example is that of Daniel the Prophet who was thrown into the lion's den but the angel of God closed the mouth of the lions and he was not harmed or devoured. (Daniel 6:20-28, Hebrews 11:33) We should therefore believe that the Almighty God can deliver us from any situation, according to His will. The Psalmist declared: “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” – Psalm 34:7.
