What You Say
“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego loved and obeyed God. They would not bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar’s statue, so he had them thrown into the furnace. A furnace is a room that’s like a fireplace. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego knew that God was with them and that no matter what happens, God’s got it. Let’s pretend that this circle is the furnace in our Bible story today. Let’s jump in and say, ‘God’s got it.’ Nice job! Now, jump out! Let’s do it again!”
“God was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and saved them from the fire. God listens to us and is always there when we need Him! God’s got it. Who’s got it? God’s got it!”
“Dear God, You are SO big and powerful, and You really can be with us wher-ever we go. You can be with us when we go to the doctor, on a walk, or even when we go to sleep. Only YOU can do that! Help us remember that You are always with us so we can be brave and do the right thing. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
