They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
I am so thankful that I serve a Risen Savior. He overcame the grave. I cannot overcome anything in my own strength, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, I can be an overcomer. I am also amazed at the believers referenced in Revelation 12:11, They did not “shrink from death.” It reminds me of Ephesians 6:15 to stand firm in the faith with the shoes of peace. I have been learning about the Armor of God referenced in Ephesians and the shoes of a Roman soldier had spokes in the bottom of them that helped him stand firm. God will help me stand firm no matter what the storms of life throws my way. He wants us to know that because he is with and for us, we can be overcomers.
