July 02, 2019: SOAP #3498: Isaiah 4-5; Psalm 115-116; JudeA

Scripture:  Jude (NIV) 24 Now unto him that is able tokeep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of hisglory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power,both now and ever. Amen.

Observation:   As welive in a world full of temptation, what a blessing to know Someone able tokeep us from falling.  How does He dothat?  Sometimes he brings a helper alongside.  Sometimes He gives us a prop.  Sometimes He calls out to us.  Sometimes He shows us in His Word. 

But the greatest way He keeps us from falling is to live inside each one!   His presence, not just near me, but inme!  It is an inside job!  His presence inspiring, indwelling, andempowering me!  

Application:   I mustlearn to recognize His presence in me.  Ineed to be listening and expecting to hear His voice.  I need to be in God's Word daily.  If I have been reading in God's Word, I willmore quickly recognize what He speaks to me personally.

Prayer:  Holy Spirit, thank you for sharing mylife.  I need a constant reminder of yourpresence.  I want you to feel welcome andfeel at home.  Keep me from falling andpresent me faultless before the Heavenly Father.  Amen
