“Because you have kept my command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the Earth.” -Jesus. Revelation 3:10 NKJV
Have you been a bit discouraged about current events in the world today? I have too, but Jesus keeps encouraging me! He encourages all of us in His Revelation to John, by challenging us to be an overcomer of our trials. Over and over in the Book of Revelation, Jesus uses this phrase: “to him who overcomes.” We must persevere!
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. Revelation 3:21” NKJV
He compares our trials to His trials? Wow. He must have done that so we will mimic what He did on the cross, persevere to do God’s will. Our trials do not and never will go unnoticed by Jesus. He is not surprised when things occur. He is encouraging us that we have a reward for being “he who overcomes.”
Glory goal for today- Read Jude 1:24-25 but say it in first person as an oath to the Lord. Praise Him!
Now to Him who is able to keep you(me) from stumbling,And to present you(me)faultless
Before the presence of His (Your) glory with exceeding joy, To God our(my) Savior,Who alone is wise,Be glory and majesty,Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
Have a great Son-day! Love and prayers to all you overcomers!
Just me. Just His!
