Thoughts Of Devotion:
Thank God for His keeping power! God has protected us and we are confident in Him! We are His sons and we are born of Him, therefore we are confident that He keep us from the evil one. In 1 John 5: 4 it promises us, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” We’re not at the mercy of the enemy, on the contrary we are winners and we walk in victory! We have the power to overcome sin and live pleasant lives before God.
The world will live under the dominion of the enemy, but we are different! The power of God protects us every day of our lives as it is stated in Jude 24, “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.” Today we can be sure that as children of God, we can walk in the new life that Jesus has given us. There is no reason why we must live in fear, under oppression or the enemy’s lies! God is able to keep us from all evil.
Sin must not lord over us. If indeed we are born again we will need to walk in the new life God offers us. We must have assured that the enemy will try to rob us of life in abundance, but if we stand firm in Christ we are confident that at the end of every battle we will come out more than conquerors. In Romans 16:20 His Word tells us, “And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.” Today we must persevere and not let the enemy rob us, He belongs beneath our feet!
