“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God” (Revelation 7:3).
Have you been marked with the cross of Christ and sealed by the Holy Spirit forever? Do not underestimate what God has already done to provide for you. He has always been at work. He knows the plans He has for you. Do not overlook the simple word, “until.” Yes, the day will come, and these things will happen. It is a mystery as to why people think all should be well in this age of sin and rebellion.
Lord, the amazing thing is that the world has as much decency as it does. But there is wickedness in this world; doubt it not. Sometimes it even comes through me. Lead me into Your righteousness so that I will walk humbly with You, my Savior and Lord. Let the mark You have made upon my new life be evident in what I say and do, no matter the cost, so that others may see the light of Your presence in me.
Lord Jesus, without Your intervention and help, this would be impossible. Guide me, Lord, in my way of life so that I may walk humbly with You in all aspects of it. Guide me in Your goodness to know the way I should go and then empower me to walk with Your mark upon me and apparent to others. Lead me today in the way of truth and keep me in the Father’s will. Lead me always, Lamb of God. Amen.
