Why tie them up?

In Daniel chapter 3 we see that the king ordered that the 3 Hebrew boys be tied up and thrown in the fiery furnace. Why would they need to be tied up? Would the fire not burn them if they were loose in the fire? Think about it.

The reason behind tying the boys up is fear. Fear is the opposite of faith and will cause actions that are inconsistent with the Word of God. Fear is what causes people to move swiftly based on outward leading and circumstances and not the Word of God. All throughout Chapter 3 of Daniel we see the king moving by fear. Don’t be moved by fear or led by fear. Be moved and led by the Spirit of God. When you move by the leading of the Holy Spirit, your actions will be with confidence and by faith as you know that your God will bring to pass what He called you to do.
