Daily Bible Reading: Revelation 12
Verse of the Day: Revelation 12:11 – “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life even unto death.”
We are reminded in this passage that believers are victorious in Jesus Christ. We do not need to have any fear. We are shown that we have “overcoming” power. Not in ourselves, but through the One who died that we could live.
The victory comes from the death of Christ upon the Cross, and is proclaimed by our verbal testimony in any and all circumstances. We will have the victory through the believers that remained strong even to giving up their own lives. Often we are not sure if we could be a martyr, but we should be constantly looking to see if we are willing to give up our choices for the ones that God wants. Are we willing to center our all on the desires and directions of our Savior?
Prayer: Jesus, I fail often in making my way more important than Your way. I surrender all.
