“And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:” (Revelation 1:17 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). While serving a prison sentence on the island of Patmos, the Apostle John was acutely aware of his aloneness and in need of renewed courage from the Lord. The “right hand” of God is synonymous with His power. At this low point in his life, John said, “And he laid his right hand upon me.”
Prayer: Lord, I ask You to place Your right hand of power on me so that I can face this day with confidence and courage. I ask for the same assurance of Your presence and power as You gave the apostle John when You placed Your hand on him.
