Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

    Is The Lord Jesus Keeping YOu

 
 
"While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name which You have given Me; and I guarded them and not one of them perished but the son of perdition, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled."
John 17:12
 
Are you enjoying the fact that the Lord Jesus is keeping you?
You might ask,"
How is He keeping me?"
Here's how:
He ministers to your every need. 
He enlightens your spirit so that your pathway is plain.
He answers your prayers.
He gives you joy, hope and peace of conscience.
He enables you to persevere.
He keeps you from stumbling.
He forgives your sins.
He lovingly brings you back to Himself when you wander away from Him.
He disciplines you.
He strengthens you through testings,
and draws you close to Himself fhrough grief.
Scripture is filled with the love-keeping of the Lord Jesus. 
 
 
If you live in Me - abide vitally united to Me -
and My words remain in you
and continue to live in your hearts,
ask whatever you will and it shall be done for you.  John 15:7 (Amplified Bible)
 
 
Jesus acknowledged before His father that He was keeping His beloved children. 
Jesus didn't say, "I have left them to do as they please."
 
Jesus is keeping you no matter the strength of your will. You may decide to do this or that, but it is He who directs your steps (Proverbs 16:9).
If He were not keeping you, you would not be kept.
Meditate of God's intimate omnipresence and omniscience, expressed by the psalmist David. 
 
 "You have enclosed me behind and before,
and laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is to wonderful for me: 
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
Where shall I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol,
behold,
You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
even there Your hand will lead me,
and Your right hand will lay hold of me"
(Psalm 139:5-10).
