Are You Sustained By The Power Of God?
Over and over again God constantly reassures us that He will keep us no matter what we do. We need this reassurance in such an evil and uncertain world because we worry about safety and security for ourselves and our families. And sometimes believers even wonder about their personal salvation. Even mature believers may have times of doubt when they wonder whether they are saved.
If you sometimes doubt, remember that even great men of God had moments of doubt. Elijah had his moments of doubt. Even John the Baptist had moments of doubt. According to Jesus, John was the greatest of the Old Testament prophets. Yet after Jesus started His public ministry, John sent a message to Him asking, "Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?" (Luke 7:19). But Jesus didn't rebuke John; He reassured him.
There are some things you need to know in times of doubt. First and foremost, God is going to keep you. Psalm 121 says, "My help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber" (verses 2–3).
The Hebrew word used in Psalm 121 for keep means to be watched, to be guarded, to have a hedge around you. It is having a wall around you that is impenetrable. God will keep us, and the Devil cannot climb over or penetrate that wall.
We are told again in 2 Thessalonians 3:3, "But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one." And 1 Peter 1:5 tells us that we "are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."
We do not keep ourselves in God’s salvation, but we are kept by His power. David fell deep into sin and so did Peter and many others in the Bible, but they didn’t fall from grace because they were kept by the power of God! And so are you! God Bless!!!
