Herod is one example of all those who have tried to destroy the Christ and His people. Though this evil king did much harm, he was in the end unable to thwart the plans of the Father for His Son. We too can be sure that even when the church suffers persecution at home and abroad, God’s kingdom will never be overcome. Pray today for believers who are suffering for their faith that they will remember the Lord’s victory and stand firm for His Gospel.
