Act 23:11 And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.
Are you a witness for the LORD, and are you just now in danger?
remember that you are immortal till your work is done.
If the LORD has
more witness for you to bear, you will live to bear it.
Who is he that
can break the vessel which the LORD intends again to use?
there is no more work for you to do for your Master, it cannot distress
you that He is about to take you home and put you where you will be
beyond the reach of adversaries.
Your witness-bearing for Jesus is your
chief concern, and you cannot be stopped in it till it is finished:
therefore, be at peace.
Cruel slander, wicked misrepresentation,
desertion of friends, betrayal by the most trusted one, and whatever
else may come cannot hinder the LORD's purpose concerning you.
stands by you in the night of your sorrow, and He says, "Thou must yet
bear witness for me." Be calm; be filled with joy in the LORD.
you do not need this promise just now, you may very soon.
Remember also to pray for missionaries and all persecuted ones, that
the LORD would preserve them even to the completion of their lifework.
