“The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in; From this time forth, and even forevermore”
Thanks be to The Almighty God Who keeps us safe at all times even until eternity. Our response to this will be…Live our life to the fullest! Taking all the chances and opportunity that God kept us, therefore making our life in the MOST EFFECTIVE that we can be.
We also wonder that how it could be living in the world shared by two principalities–the kingdom of satan & God’s Kingdom. Our capability to trust God’s Word is compromised by another kingdom powerful enough to draw our ways from God. Then how will I be effective?
Sad to say, that we cannot and unable to do so…UNLESS:
…We start our day thinking of “GOOD NEWS”. The moment we wakes up each day, we should grasp the reality that we are ALIVE, and will be alive FOREVERMORE (John 11:25-26). Jesus Christ make sure of that, once long ago we are death from sin but now alive even we die because we believes in HIM. Receiving this GOOD NEWS will make us forever thankful. The miracle of forever living in God’s Kingdom will also lead us to Worship HIM, and so God will be Glorified through Him (John 13:31).
another way to keep us going …To be Watchful & Prayerful & Fast. We cannot endure temptation because our body is weak even the spirit is willing (Matthew 26:41). Watch over the life-giving-spirit within us “Who is Jesus” (1 Corinthians 15:45) Whom should be our dominant character of our being. Pray that we can see the true battle that is spiritual (Ephesians 6:12) therefore the Faith will grow so we can able to please God in whatever we do (Hebrew 11:6). The life-giving-spirit within us is revitalized by Fasting, as the body nourished by food & vitamins. To fast in all desirable realm of the body will make our spirit superior over flesh (John 3:6-8).
Lastly…We need A HELPER. Jesus knew that we are ineffective and will not create a dynamic service in all our goings if we do not have HIM. After Resurrection, Jesus stayed for awhile with His disciples, being not an orphans for a longer time because another will come–their “Helper” as the Promise of The Father for them. Their Comforter after Jesus, and our Helper too until today and for the rest of all days while we’re here on earth up to the last living spirit Ministering for the growth of God’s Kingdom–The Holy Spirit Whom we must be led & filled. Christ Jesus prepared the way of the Spirit of God to dwell within us even we have this sinful body–through Him we can be filled by The Spirit: therefore by God’s overflowing grace, our body can received Him, it is the current Temple of God. The manifest Presence of the Almighty is through His Spirit that will discharge supernatural power a man cannot. Now, making sure we are capable & responsible in all things by prayer & fasting (Matthew 17:21), we need to acquire within our temple (body) the Holy SPIRIT in order for us to become able. Moreover, only by the Work of The Holy Spirit we can do all things possible even it is impossible in the world we live in, because The Spirit sees unseen affairs of this present world and even tomorrows’ come. (Passages: Ezekiel 36:27; Acts 1:4-5, 8; John 14:15; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; 2 Corinthians 5:16-18; John 16:13). If we believed that we are from God…Filling by the Spirit of God what makes our life Full (Romans 8:9).
My Prayer to you, “May God makes your daily going in and out effective and full of grace,” In Jesus Mighty Name.
Preserved by God,
Glory be unto God Almighty. God bless!
