Temptation | December 16
”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.
Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.
He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.”
Father, we know that trials will come on the Day of Judgment; but here You promise us we shall kept, by You, from that hour of trial. You have taught us Father that in the interim we will be tested and that each test is intended to strengthen us, to get us in spiritual shape to handle what is coming.
Father, we know to train for a race or to prepare for a recital and that such conditioning is prescribed; but please help us prepare for the most important test of our life, one in which we stand before You.
You promise us that Your name will be inscribed upon us, we will belong to You forever and that Your name will be a name that is new to us, a name by which we will address You for eternity.
Father, there is so much we do not yet understand, but this we know. Your love for us will prevail and You will protect us and claim us as Your children, Your friends and servants forever. We seek to be like You Jesus and in Your Holy name we pray these things, amen.
