How are you “kept” saved?


BIBLE MEDITATION:

Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:5

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

Believers are “kept” by the power of God. This word “kept” in 1 Peter 1:5 is a military term. It literally means to be garrisoned about as soldiers around a fort.

Think of the power of God as a fortress and you are on the inside. Now how do you feel? Pretty secure, right? So many people get the idea that we keep ourselves safe. Friend, He keeps us.

A father was crossing a street with his son. The son had hold of his daddy’s hand, then the light changed and the cars surged forward.  The father grabbed his son’s chubby little hand and almost lifted his son across the street to escape the oncoming traffic. That is the way God holds us. 

ACTION POINT:

Psalm 37:24 promises, “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with His hand.” As you go through your day, place your hand in His and say, “Father, carry me across this day You have given me.”
