SEEK DAILY (NBC) DEVOTIONAL November 12, 2021 (GOD’S FAITHFUL WITNESSES)
TOPIC: GOD’S FAITHFUL WITNESSES
Bible Text: Revelation 11:3-10
“And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” Revelation 11:3, NIV
In every generation, there are believers God has set apart for signs in that generation. These signs can sometimes include persecution and tribulation. Our response at these times is what will show whether we are faithful or not. Today’s passage gave a picture of two witnesses that minster in God’s presence and have the power to defeat their enemies, and even shut the sky. However, it is part of God’s plan that at a time they will be overpowered and killed, but God still sent His breath to revive them.
God’s witnesses must be prepared to weather any storm that may come their way as they represent God. They should trust the God that they serve for total redemption and deliverance even in the midst of persecution. This act of unwavering trust in God is what makes believers faithful witnesses of God. As children of God, we must realise that challenges are inevitable on this path, but our God is able to deliver us from them all. Are you passing through one form of persecution or another because of your faith in God? Trust God to deliver you from all your troubles.
Insight: God’s arm is not too short to deliver His children
Prayer: Lord help me to remain faithful to you even in the face persecution.
RBT Passage: Acts 4-5
