Read David Jeremiah Devotional 10 October 2023, Turning Point Devotional Message
TOPIC: Escaping the Fire
Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world. – Revelation 3:10
Recommended Reading: Revelation 3:7-13
Years ago when an offshore oil platform in the North Sea caught fire, flames swept over the rig, and workers thought they were doomed. Just in the nick of time, however, a fleet of Scottish helicopters appeared, and all 130 workers were rescued.
We usually thank God for the blessings He gives, but we should also praise Him for the escapes He provides. Take, for example, the period of the Tribulation. If, as we believe, the Church of the Lord Jesus will be raptured prior to the time of God’s wrath, why should we study Revelation 6–18, which describe Tribulation events? Because they show us how thankful we should be for what we’re missing!
Today thank the Lord for His oversight, His protection, and even for the blessings of unanswered prayer. As Christians, we should be thankful for what God has given us by His grace and also for what He withholds by His mercy.
God’s mercy and grace give me hope—for myself and for our world.
