I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” Revelation 1:9‭-‬11 NKJV

While it is inescapable for every faithful disciple of Jesus to share in the tribulations of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ, it is also not impossible for us to exercise patience in our trials as we await the final consummation of the Kingdom of God which He promised us.

As long as you do not lose focus of your calling and derail from the path of righteousness, no matter what you suffer as a result of your commitment to the testimony of Jesus, God will also not forsake you not abandon you in whatever condition or situation you may find yourself. He will surely come to you to strengthen you, assure you of your blessed hope in Him, and equip you with a deeper revelation so that you may become a more useful witness for Him.

In short, the Lord God to whom you belong and to whom you serve is fully aware of whatever trials you are going through for His sake, He is committed to preserving your soul till the end of your pilgrimage and He can use your trials to produce a message of hope, encouragement, and revival for other saints in similar situations and conditions.

Don’t give up then no matter the intensity of the heat you are in, your life is precious to God and He will watch over you till the end. May the Lord strengthen your heart and fortify you with grace to endure till the end. Good morning and do have a blessed day.

Your brother,
