Rev 2:10-11 [NET]
10 Do not be afraid of the things you are about to suffer. The devil is about to have some of you thrown into prison so you may be tested, and you will experience suffering for ten days. Remain faithful even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown that is life itself.

The Church in Smyrna was accurate. They were a very serious threat to the kingdom of darkness in that territory. Because of this, the devil stirred up persecution against them using the people under his control. The battle was all about their faith and nothing else. The devil wanted to weaken their faith so that they would no longer be such a great threat.

Every operation of the devil against children of God is for the singular purpose of weakening their faith. One of the easiest ways faith is weakened is when fear is allowed in.

The devil persecuted the church in Smyrna because he wanted to bring fear on them and see if he could weaken their faith. Jesus knew that as long as their faith was not weakened, they would overcome and the devil would ultimately lose the battle for that territory. Jesus empowers them not to be afraid.

If people in that church were killed with their faith intact, their spiritual lampstands [in that territory] would still be intact and continue burning the light of salvation. This means in the future, that territory would have no choice but to bow to Christ. And this would be to the credit of the people that kept the fire burning. They would receive the crown of life for this.

Go into today remembering that one of the easiest ways faith is weakened is when fear is allowed in.
Ask the Lord to strengthen you and deliver you from all fear.
