“These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth” (Revelation 11:4).

The Lord sends some into the midst of the wicked as witnesses, those who proclaim the truth.  One day, there will be these two particular witnesses and see that the Lord gives protection for His purpose.  He protects those who proclaim the truth.  Even though you die, yet shall you live.  The Lord has given you promises.  Do you trust them or do you fear and flee from adversity because you do not trust the Lord at His word.

Lord, I have heard these promises, but I do not fully believe them.  Or at least, I do not live as though I believe them.  I become afraid and do not speak the fire of Your word.  You have given us the truth to set us free.  Give me passion such that I do not want those around me to go to hell.  Lead me in being bold for Your sake.  Guide me into the goodness of Your grace and mercy.  Lead me in the truth of Your word.

Lord Jesus, You came into this world to save us from sin, death, and the devil.  The promise was given.  You foreknow those who will believe and You pursue them.  Let me be a part of Your pursuit.  Guide me to be bold, yet gentle and humble in proclaiming the truth of Your word.  Lead me, Lord Jesus, to live into the life You have set before me so that others may know that I am Your follower.  Amen.
