“Therefore write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things” (Revelation 1:19).
The Lord, who knows all things, has given us a message to encourage us through the difficult times that will come upon those who believe. The world hates the followers of Christ. Some have experienced horrific things. Do not think that you are exempt. It could happen to you. Pray that it doesn’t, but prepare so that no matter what comes, you are found following the Lord in all of His ways.
Lord, I do not know what tomorrow will bring. Help me be prepared for whatever may come so that I do not rely upon this unreliable world, but upon You who has given promises and a hope that cannot be taken away. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go and prepare me for what You know lies before me. Through all things, grant that I would hold fast to You now and forever.
Lord Jesus, Alpha and Omega, guide me in the way of salvation which You have set before me. Lead me this day to think upon those things which are right and good. Help me to learn how to meditate upon Your word. Through all things that come, help me see that it is true that even amidst adversity, You are working all things together for good because You love me. Help me to see and understand, Lord. Amen.
