HE IS ABLE TO KEEP IT
HE IS ABLE TO KEEP IT
Read: Psalm 91:1-16
“For this reason, I also suffer these things; nevertheless, I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Timothy 1:12).
When you have a valuable item, you would want to keep it safe. So instead of leaving it to lie around the place, you take it to a safe deposit box and custody it there. Similarly, you take your money to the bank to keep it safe.
The enemy is the thief that comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). He wants to steal your peace of mind, your health, the joy in your marriage, your finances, the destiny of your children, your job and even your life. God can safeguard whatever is entrusted into His hands. Psalm 127: 1-3 says “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep. Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward”.
Are you currently anxious because you are on the brink of losing that which is precious to you? On your own, you are unable to safeguard anything, no matter how hard you try. And no other power can help you. Instead of struggling why not commit that difficult marriage, stubborn child, ailing body, failing health, unsaved loved one, financial situation or whatever it is unto the hands of God? The wording of a famous song says, “I am safe whatever ills betide me, in the hollow of His hands”. You can be sure that the One who neither sleeps nor slumbers will keep whatever you have committed to Him.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall [b]direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones” (Proverbs 3:5-8).
IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?
He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.
Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at email@example.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
I look forward to hearing from you.
