KEEPING POWER

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

God is so faithful.  When I sit and look back over my life and even look at just yesterday, I marvel at how God continues to keep me.  The meaning of keep : preserve, maintain, to watch over and defend> keep us from harm> to take care of> tend> support: to maintain in a good, fitting, or orderly condition.  In this hour,  it is vital that we notice and thank God for keeping us each and everyday.  If God didn't keep us, it would blow our minds what our lives would look like.

In the word God says "I will never leave you nor forsake you."  When Noah was in the ark and it looked as if he was doomed, God kept him. When Lot was in the midst of Sodom and Gomorrah filled with sin and disaster, God kept him. When Joseph was in a pit, God kept him.  Paul on a ship that was about to go under, God kept him.  When Peter denied Jesus and he felt it was over, God kept him. Now I ask,  what are you going through?  Whether you feel it or see it God is keeping you.  You ask, oh really? John 17:15 Jesus prayed for us.  He said "I'm not asking that you take them out of the world, but to "KEEP" them safe from the evil one.  Jesus said that we would have trials and troubles but be of good cheer because He has overcome the world.  I ask you to look back from yesterday and throughout your life and just think about how God has kept and is keeping you.  Take notice and give credit where credit is due which is to the one true God who is the same yesterday, today and forever.
