“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand” (John 10.28 NIV).
God gives us the ultimate Protection: Through Jesus’ Finished Work on the Cross, we have been reconciled back to God — and no one can snatch us out of God’s hands. Once we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, our eternity with Him is sealed. A contract has been made via God’s grace and our faith then signed with the Blood of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. Our salvation is set in stone. That truth in itself is enough to give us profound daily joy. Life has its troubles, heartache and pain — but in eternity there will be no more tears, sorrow, pain or death.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever” (Revelation 21.4 NLT).
With God’s Power on our side, the enemy is going to step up his game to steal our destiny, destroy our testimony and kill our faith (John 10.10). However, we do not have to live in fear because God promises us not just Protection of our spirits, but Protection according to His will in our lives and our faithfulness to him. God is a good Father, and He wants His Children to have Protection. Yes, the world has fallen from God’s best and sin entered the earth. God’s Children make mistakes, hurt others and even do unthinkable atrocities. However, as a Child of the King, I would like to believe that God is looking out for us, and I want to always be aware and expectant of His divine intervention on our behalf.
“Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us” (Romans 5.3-5 NET).
