People who don’t gain perspective with regard to divine providence tend to struggle in making sense of plenty. John is seized by the truth he sees.


1. I am not alone

  • Common Fate
  • Common Faith
  • Common Function

2. I am not to fear

  • Jesus is in complete control
  • Jesus is caring enough
  • Jesus is carrying out his responsibility

3. I am not done until it’s done

  • Testify to God’s provision (people, circumstances, resources)
  • Testify to God’s protection (presence, power)
  • Testify to God’s possession (past, present, future)
