Today’s Verse: Jude 24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy. NASB
Our granddaughter loves to run through the house. It is a jot to see her so free and full of joy. Unfortunately, she also likes to wear shoes that are too big for her little feet. As a result she has a tendency to stumble and crash quite often. When we stumble spiritually, there are some obvious comparisons. What powerful words in this verse! God is indeed able to keep us from stumbling. Yes, even after we are saved, we have a propensity to still stumble on occasion(s). That is an undeniable fact. However, we need not. If we would simply go before the Father before we walk into the range of temptation, what a difference that would make. Do you believe God can keep you from stumbling? If we followed Jesus’ example we would pray the night before for strength, wisdom and guidance fro God. If we did this we would likely stumble less. Having made the decision to follow God’s way in advance makes the doing easier. Look what we get as a reward. We stand in His presence blameless and with great joy. Wow, what a picture! Jesus died for our sins. Jesus lived to set a righteous example for living. Thank you Lord for both for we need them both every day.
May God bless your heart as you seek His.
