Revelation 12:11 “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the strength of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.”
They overcame the devil by Jesus’ blood, and by the strength of their testimony. They had no fear of death, because they did not love their lives more than they loved God. If all Christians were like this, how powerful would God’s people be?
God doesn’t want me to be afraid to do things because I am too much in love with my life, but rather to have faith in Him that whatever happens, I will end up with Him, and that I won’t ever be alone. His love conquers all.
Dear Lord Jesus, give me faith to trust in You, and strength to carry out Your commands. I don’t want to love my life, I want to love having YOU in my life. Amen.
