God's words are true and trustworthy
Today’s devotion is based on Revelation 22:6, “The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true.’”
When John wrote the words of our Bible passage for today, Jesus hadn’t been around in the flesh for over fifty years. John’s friends and fellow disciples had all been killed. John himself had been exiled to an island. Things weren’t looking good for John or the Christian Church.
Perhaps you’ve felt the same way. You may feel abandoned and alone. Christianity seems not to be doing well, as Christians are viewed more as haters than helpers. It is for you that the words of today’s Bible passage were written. God’s Word is true. And because God’s Word is true, it is also trustworthy. You can trust that your sins are forgiven through Jesus’ selfless sacrifice. You can trust that he defeated death when he rose from the tomb. You can trust that he has not left you alone. These words are trustworthy and true.
Please pray with me, Lord; thank you for the truth of your Word. Use your words to increase our trust that the strife will not be extended. Although we hear the noise of battle today, the day will come when we hear the victor’s song. In Jesus’ blessed name, I pray. Amen
