Jude 1: 24
“To Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore.”
When we watch our children fall, we immediately run to lift them up with care. We are very cautious about their health and welfare. Though we wouldn’t have lived a better life, we desire and strive hard to give our children a better one.
When we care so much about our children, how much more would God watch over and care about us all?
Though you may stumble upon various problems in life, you will not fall, for the Lord upholds you with His hand. He is your Creator; He is your Protector.
He is your Saviour; He is your Father; To Him be all glory and praise.
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
Satan is very furious nowadays in creating adversity, hardship, tribulations among people, to turn them away from God. Satan attacks on God’s people are many and of various types. Jesus also faced temptations by Satan. The tempter came to Him and said, “If you are the son of God, change the stones to bread; if you are the son of God jump down;” Satan put the same words on some people who watched Him on the cross and they said, “if you are the son of God come down from the Cross”.
The evil one challenges every child of God about his/her child-ship with God. He will put questions in you like, how can a sinner like you be the child of God? If you are the child of God, how can these things happen to you? Such questions will bombard you every day and night.
To overcome the power of Satan, you must constantly remember that you are the child of God and He is your Father. Recall everyday that you have the right to be the child of God because you believe in Him and you have accepted Him in your life. Under any circumstances, God will never let go of His children. He will forever be at your side.
So be strong and stand firm in the truth of His mighty words. He will lead you through any tough battles of the evil and you will conquer and flee the devil in the Name of the Lord.
“As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.”
Our life is balanced by both joy and sorrow. Nobody is happy forever and nobody is filled with sorrow for life long. You should understand that life has both good and bad things and so we should know which one to pick in order to make our life a righteous one.
You would have experienced that people’s talk may be smooth as butter, but yet you would find hatred in their hearts. Though their words be soothing than oil, yet they wage war against you. Your companion would have turned out as your enemy. Are you in search of someone who can show unfailing care on you and who can save you, when you call unto them for help?
In this world, there are very few people whom you can trust and call for help during your need.
Stay confident! Though people may forsake you, God is always there to cast your burden. He will sustain you and He will never let the righteous be shaken. When you cry out in distress, He is at your side, all times, to hear your voice. He will save you, BUT… you have to call unto Him.
