Preserved and Protected

“But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.”

—2 Thessalonians 3:3

 

 

 

If you were to go to an amusement park with your children, you wouldn’t forget about them, would you? Of course not. Because you love your children, you’re aware of where they are.

 

You don’t forget someone that you care about.

 

God cares about you too, and He’s continually keeping you. Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf” (NLT).

 

In fact, there are many passages in the Bible that remind us of the keeping and protective power of God. We read in 2 Thessalonians 3:3, “But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one” (NLT). And Jude 1:24 says, “Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault” (NLT).

 

Also, 1 Peter 1:5 reminds us, “And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see” (NLT). The original language uses a perfect tense, meaning that God is continually protecting you.

 

An older man who was known for his godly life was asked what he did when he was tempted. He replied, “Well, I just say, ‘Lord, your property is in danger.’”

 

You are God’s property. You belong to the Lord. The Bible says, “You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20 NLT).

 

So God preserves you. He protects you. He keeps you by His power. So the next time the Devil comes knocking at your door, just say, “Lord, would you mind getting that?”

 

That’s the way to deal with the enemy’s attacks.
