The Lord Will Keep You.

"What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole."
1 Peter 1:3‭-‬5 MSG

God is keeping a watchful eye over us and the future. The King James version says in verse 5 that we are "kept by the power of God". The word "kept" comes from the Greek word phroureo which comes from a compound of two words which means to keep with a garrison. It depicts God's power as a watcher in advance which mount guards as a sentinel or post spies at gates.

Like a watcher or guard the Lord keeps a watchful eye over you against any attacks of the enemy. He is actively looking out for your spirit, soul and body. You are kept by the power of God. The Lord is able to keep you from falling.  The Lord is able to keep that which you have committed to His trust.

Have you committed your marriage into God's trust? That's the only way it can be kept. Your children in God's custody are the safest in the world. Do you struggle with money so much that you don't know where it goes after a few days of receiving it? Ask God to keep the money for you.

Your body is the temple of the Lord. If you deliver it into the custody of the power of God it can be kept, protected and preserved from violent death, diseases and ageing and normal death.

I am kept by the power of God. My spirit is protected, my mind is protected, and my body is preserved by the power of God.
