Our God Keeps Us…

Manna For Today: Wednesday, February 15, 2017


Among the many things we learn about our God is that He is a keeping God. God does and will keep you!

Sometimes our circumstances can seem to challenge this idea but the Bible says, “Let God be true and every human a liar [Romans 3:4].”

No matter who is speaking in tension with the Word of your God, choose to believe your God and not people.

Note how God keeps us:

1. We are kept in the Father’s name.

John 17:11Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.

2. We are kept in safety.

John 17:12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

3. We are kept in joyfulness.

John 17:13But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

4. We are kept in purity.

John 17:15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

Dear friend, we are kept by an unfailing God. It is no coincidence that the Word of God says, “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world [I John 4:4].”

Let us meditate on the keeping graces of our King and rejoice today in His loving kindness toward us.

Be kept by your God today!

Peace and blessings!

    Heavenly Father, thank You for keeping me today by your joy and by your love. I will go throughout my day remembering those two facts. Please, show me how to share them with others who need to know that You will love and establish joy in their lives also. In the name of Christ, by Your powerful Spirit, I pray. Amen.

  4. Father thank you for all the ways you keep me, my family, and my church family from dangers seen and unseen. Thank You for keeping me in perfect peace as I meditate on Your Word. Help Your children continue to be co-laborers in the body of Christ so that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus name Amen.
