“I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus” (Revelation 1:9).
We are partakers of tribulation in this age. There are some who take this book and make it into something it is not. All of Scripture is for our edification. Be helped by the One who is and know that He has given you grace and mercy to live in this age of rebellion. He came to save us and salvation is what we receive from Him. Persevere through all difficulties knowing the Lord uses everything for His purpose.
You understand the difficulty of the way of righteousness in this age of rebellion, Lord. You know that there are those who will mock and curse and hate. Lead me through the mazes of this age on the narrow path and hold fast to the promises You have given so that I may be a fellow partaker of the goodness You give. Guide me by Your grace to persevere and do what is needed each day. Help me to remain steadfast throughout the trials and tribulations that You have already overcome in this age.
Lord Jesus, Savior and King, You know all that is needed. You have already provided even before I have asked. In the Father’s will, show me how this day to humbly walk with You wherever You lead. Guide me in the knowledge You have revealed and teach me to trust in faith that You are leading the way. In You alone do I have hope. Hold me in that hope until the day we meet face to face. Amen.
