Reflection:

1. Are you suffering from doubts today about Jesus? Are you suffering from something that leads you to that conclusion either in your physical or mental needs today?

2. Is your faith in Jesus looking forward? Do you know with certainty that Jesus has won the victory? Can you join that great crowd in Revelation 7 waving your palm branches with them?
