The truth of the matter is that life brings challenges that we simply cannot handle on our own. We daily carry more than we can handle by ourselves. As Christians, we learn to lean on Jesus and also on others who are established in the faith.
“Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.” Jude 24
We have the privilege and hope that we can look up from the vast depths of our weakness and see Jesus the “Author and Finisher of our faith.” The Bible says that He is the keeper of Israel and the keeper of covenants and of mercy. On a more personal note, He is well able to keep you from falling. Never forget this powerful promise from the Lord – He will keep you! Remember that He is faithful and true and His Word cannot fail.
As we start a new week of life challenges and undesired dilemmas, let us all hold to the Lord’s unchanging hand. He stands within the shadows keeping watch upon His own. Listen for His whisper of reassurance that “He’s got this.”
