In the Spirit on the Lord’s Day

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord,
which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. I, John,
who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the
kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called
Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 1:8-9
The Apostle John was between the ages of 93 and 97 when the angel came and gave him this prophecy. John was the only one of the disciples that
died a natural death, although religious leaders and authorities tried
to kill John in numerous ways, including throwing him in a vat of
boiling oil. They finally exiled him to the Isle of Patmos, essentially
a rock that served as an island for prisoners, with no food, water, or
other supplies. They didn’t expect him to live long there without any
support.

John could have said, “Woe is me. Lord, I have been faithful to you all
these years. I’m cold. I’m hungry and thirsty. I’m living in a cave.
What has it profited me to serve you?” Instead, he said: I was in the
Spirit on the Lord’s day…. (Revelation 1:10a). Instead of feeling
sorry for himself, this man is praying and in the Holy Ghost. He is
having a good time all by himself. He knew how to handle adverse
circumstances.

Prayer for Today

Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for John’s example of facing hard situations with grace and
in the power of Your Spirit. Thank You for the privilege of bringing
every need and every concern to You and leaving them at Your feet. In
Jesus’ name, Amen.

Think on These Things

Isaiah 44:6
Revelation 11:17

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
