I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of 2 Thessalonians. 3:3 , “But The Lord is faithful, who will establish you, and guard you, from the evil one.”
From the above context we understand that the Lord is faithful, and He shall establish you, and guard you from the evil one. It was necessary for Apostle Paul to teach the believers that lawlessness was already in the world and that the enemy of our soul seeks our downfall. But he joyfully reminds us that God is greater. God is faithful, and He has promised to establish us in the faith and guard us against the evil one.
I am posting this message in order to project the True and Living God before you. Why should you know this God? If you get to know Him, then your life will be established. If you know Him then not only in this world, but also in Heaven, a greater glory is awaiting for you. The above word of God says, The Lord who is faithful, will stabilize your life. . Many who are reading this message, are worried because, your life has not been, stabilized or well settled. You seem to say, look I have no permanent job, I don’t even have a good business with which I can support my family. I am not able to stand firm in my business or job.” There is no stability in your life. You seem to be shaking in everything you do. Be it your education, your job, your business and this causes uneasiness in your family life. You are not able to please your spouse and children as well. You think you will fall. Only when a person, stands firm, he can stabilize himself. You should not be a person who will fall. The Bible says, one who stands firm, till the end will be saved.
We serve a good and faithful God, Who has promised to work His good works in our lives and establish each one of us in every good work and word. But we must be aware that we have a powerful enemy, who desires our downfall and seeks to weaken our faith. No wonder Paul was keen to remind the believers that God is faithful to guard us against the evil one who is called the devil and satan. It is this evil one that does not allow you to be smart, and active. You tend to be lazy, you expect others to do everything for you. You cannot stand on your own. The satan, suppresses all your ability and capacity and makes you feel that you are good for nothing. You are unfit to do anything for yourself or for your family. He discourages you to do anything good in your life, then how can you establish yourself? Seek God and His Mercy then He will strengthen the weak areas of your life and help you to stand firm and steady.
The faithfulness of God streams throughout the pages of Scripture, His promises of grace; His wonderful words of warning and His amazing gift of salvation. Man may be faithless and false – But God is faithful despite our inconsistencies. And He expands this promise of grace to strengthen and establish you in the truth of His Word. He works in us and through us, for His good purpose. For, God knew you even before the foundation of this world. He knows the number of hairs on your head and keeps your tears in His bottle. And if has God predestined, you, called and chosen you, then, He undertakes to justify and to sanctify and to glorify you. And He is faithful to do everything that He has promised you in His Word. For our God is Faithful and True. He vows to keep His children from, sin and the plans of the evil one, who seeks to sift us as wheat and to pollute our witness. God will not allow us to be tested above that which we are able to bear, but will provide us a way of escape. God knows our weakness, and He understands that our faith may fail, BUT the Lord is faithful, Who shall establish you, and guard you from the evil one. Look to Him and be saved.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You because you are a God who is faithful, to keep your promises. Namely to strengthen, establish and protect us, even when our faith falters and we prove faithless and false to You. Keep us ever mindful of this truth and guide us in the choices that we make in our life. Use us as an instrument of Your grace and keep us from all evil, so that we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of You, and in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
