Marie’s daily verse: 2 Timothy 4:1-2 (NLT)I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when he comes to set up his Kingdom:  Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.
DAILY DEVOTION, November 6, 2022
I give them eternal life. They shall never perish, nor shall anyone snatch them from My hand. (John 10:28).
This is a wonderful promise. Once we have received the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus we will never perish. As long as faith is present in our hearts, we are secure. Jesus has His hand upon us, and no one is strong enough to snatch us from His grip.
Jesus began a good work in us, and we can trust Him to complete it (Philippians 1). We are safe under the wings of God. If you possess a living faith in Jesus, you can rest secure. Perhaps you were in a situation where you avoided a deadly accident. We do not see the angels of God, but we wonder sometimes if God has sent one of His angels to save us from bodily harm. However, God works to save us from harm, and we can count on Him. Faith is a wonderful thing that brings us under the protection of Almighty God.
Even more important is to realize He protects us from spiritual harm. The devil and his demons can’t snatch us from the protective hand of Jesus. We wander off in the wrong direction at times, but God will always draw us back to Himself. When life goes well, trust in Jesus. When life is difficult, trust in Jesus. No matter what, trust in Jesus and you are in good hands.
Father, I thank You for this wonderful promise. As I trust in Jesus, I am secure. Keep me in true faith unto everlasting life. Amen
