BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 8-10; Hebrews 13
FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 10:27-28
MEMORY VERSE: “And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.” – John 6:39
Preservation is the work of God where He eternally secures and guarantees the first salvation of all believers. While God’s role is to secure a believer’s salvation, the believer’s responsibility is to persevere. Perseverance is the divinely enabled continued progress of a believer in faith, doctrine and practice whereby he is assured of eternal security (1 Corinthians 1:7-8). Perseverance involves one’s faith, doctrine and practice. Faith is the victory we have in Christ to overcome the world, doctrine is our belief and preparation, while practice is to follow Christ, doing good works.
Christianity has not promised a life without difficulties and problems. Though we have a loving God, difficulties, challenges and problems will still come our way. Is God not loving enough to shield us from these challenges? Let’s look at the story of Joseph in the Bible, his dreams cost him his freedom as his brothers sold him into slavery. It did not end there. He found himself in Potiphar’s house, where Potiphar’s wife wanted him to lie with her. His refusal still cost him his freedom, because he was thrown into jail. Finally, he was remembered and he bacame a Prime Minister in Egypt, a foreign land. All these happened for the purpose of God to be fulfilled in his life.
God knows our difficulties and challenges; He would preserve us to persevere through them, as he prepares great testimonies for us. God enables us to persevere in our faith, doctrine and practice as He provides protection for us. In times of challenges and troubles, we need to be patient, keep believing and trusting God. Do not give up because if you faint in the day of adversity your strength is small. A little ‘push’ (pray until something happens) will make all the difference you need.
GOD IS ABLE TO DO ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK, ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKETH IN US.
The Lord shall protect and preserve you as you persevere to the end of time.
1 My Father, in the remaining days of this year, preserve me and my family, in the name of Jesus.
2 I declare that my going out and coming in are covered by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
3 I declare that no evil shall befall me; neither shall any plague come near my dwelling, in the name of Jesus.
4 Everywhere I go, God’s abiding presence will never depart from me, in the name of Jesus.
5 I hide myself and every member of my family in the envelope of fire, in the name of Jesus.
6 My God neither sleeps nor slumbers. I trust in the shadow of His wings, in the name of Jesus.
7 I replace the mark of destruction with the mark of preservation by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
