“They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings — and with Him will be His CALLED, CHOSEN and FAITHFUL followers.” (v 14 NIV)
You, Lord, have called me out of darkness and into Your kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13-14). You have chosen me to be Yours, Your heir, and to be holy in Your sight (Ephesians 1:4, 11). You strengthen me to be faithful, the one trait of these three that depends on me, my choices and my attitude and actions (Matthew 25:21; Romans 12:12; 1 Corinthians 4:2)
No matter what challenges come, no matter what battle is waged against me, Father, keep me faithful, sustain my joy, and help me to patiently endure as You use all things in my life to make me just like Jesus. Amen.
