2 Thessalonians 3:3 (KJV)
But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.
Our God is faithful and His promises are ever true. There may be times when we are faithless – BUT despite our inconsistencies, He expands His promise of grace even further on us. God even knew us before the foundation of the world. He knows the number of hairs on our head and keeps our tears in His bottle. And those, whom God predestined, called and chose He undertakes to justify and to sanctify and to glorify. Remember, He is faithful to do everything that He has promised. Yet once again this amazing ‘BUT’ subdivides into a further token of His love towards us, for He vows to keep His children from the evil of sin.
Sin, death and Satan’s snares have no power over us, for the enemy was defeated at Calvary and God will not allow us to be tested above that which we are able to bear. HE will provide us with an escape-route, from all the principles and practices that are dangled before us as bait, to draw us back into the evil world system. He has pledged to establish His children in the truths of His Word. God knows our weakness and He understands that our faith may fail. BUT the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and guard you from the evil one.
Let us pray and ask God to keep us ever mindful of this truth and guide us in the choices we make today.
