And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.
The Lord said,
Be of good cheer, Paul, and we can be cheered up today. There are things going on that we don't even know about, and the Lord is taking care of problems, and arranging circumstances, and keeping us safe- so that we can be a witness and a testimony for Him. We need to be witnessing and testifying for the Lord.
