“And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death” (Revelation 12:11).

The world hates the Lord.  He is the Creator and He made everything, but the world has rejected its Creator.  But those who have received grace love the Lord and know that even though they will die, yet will they live because of the promise of the Lord.  How then will you live?  Will you live in the temporary way of the world, or will you come with the Lord to reside with Him forever?  Love the Lord with all your heart and rely not on your own understanding.

Lord, You know I go back and forth and that I am often confused.  Lead me, O Lord, by having a heart that is for You always.  Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You alone is all hope.  Help me get through all that I feel to come to the place where what is true guides me, and help me to be not led by the feelings I have.  Let me not fear death, but rather, love the life that You give by grace.

Lord Jesus, I will die, perhaps even with suffering as You did.  But You rose from the dead.  Guide me Lord Jesus in the hope of everlasting life so that I may not fear death but know that You have given me eternal life.  Help me work through all the temptations that come my way so that I may live in the hope of the resurrection.  Thank You, Jesus for providing all that I need.  Amen.
