The scripture reading for today is Luke 21:13, NIV
"And so you will bear testimony to me."
Jesus was talking to a group of people telling them of the possibility of having very difficult and tortured lives partially because of their belief in him. He indicated that in that situation of being believers in the face of the difficulties it caused them, they were in a position to give testimony about feeling that way. That testimony would be stating and explaining that their belief in Jesus and God's promises was over whelming to any of life's challenges.
That is what true belief is all about. That we can know that Jesus is always available to us for help and relief from the challenges of everyday life no matter what. That belief is a deep-rooted feeling and mental awareness that Jesus is present in our minds and is accessible to us at anytime.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for having the comfort and safety of knowing that with any situation, I have Jesus in my mind and can turn my attention to Him for any help or relief I may need. Amen!
