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. Psalm 37:24 promises, ?Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with His hand.?
ACTION POINT: You are in God?s right hand. Write that down and post it in a place where you can meditate on it throughout the day. Now, ask yourself, ?Knowing thisícan anything this week change that truth??
