“And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them…This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.” (Revelation 13:7,10 NLT)
There will be a time when evil is allowed to prevail, seemingly unrestrained, and God’s people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful. This scares me. I have trouble sharing what I believe now, when 79% of unchurched Americans are willing to talk about my faith if I am willing to bring it up.
Father, help me to see and experience more of your goodness, grace, and glory – to know more of your love so I will not be afraid and so others can come to know you through me.
