“And God will wipe every tear from their eyes” (Revelation 7:17 NLT).


There was a pause after the opening of the 6th seal. And John saw a great multitude join with the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders in worshiping the Lord. One of the elders asked John whether he knew who the multitude was and from where they had come. But John did not know.

So the elder explained, “These are the ones who died in the great tribulation. They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb and made them white” (Rev. 7:14). He said that a day was coming when they would no longer hunger or thirst, and the Lord would wipe away every tear from their eyes.

Every season has a beginning, a middle, and an end. This is true of every tribulation, even the great one. There will be trouble, but the Lord promises to never leave, nor forsake His own. And in the end, He wipes away every tear.

PRAYER: Dear Father, some of us may have gone through a tough season this year. Some are still in the midst of one. Yet, we know that we have not been left alone. For You are always with us. And one day, You will wipe away every tear. In Jesus’ name, amen.
