He is able!

Wow- today's readings are so full we will only be able to skim the surface- so be sure to read all three passages on your own!

Today's readings: Jude, Ezra 9-10, Psalm 95

"Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever amen." -Jude 1:24-25

"Oh come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms." -Psalm 95:1-2

I don't know how anyone could read those verses in Jude and not respond with joyful shouts of praise! He is able to keep you from stumbling. Whoa! Even if we just stopped right there, that is enough to keep me praising Him all day long! Do you truly believe that? He is able to keep you from stumbling! You do not have to sin. He is able to keep you! But He cannot do so, unless He has complete control of your life. You must surrender all that you are to Him- and then He is able to keep you from stumbling! What an amazing, life-changing truth.

And He is God our savior. As we focus on Jesus this week, we can praise Him for coming to earth to save us. We could not save ourselves- just like we cannot keep ourselves from stumbling- but He is able to save and to keep us! Hallelujah!

He alone is wise. He knows what is best for us! He knows what the future holds! Wouldn't you like to trust a God like that? There are days when I doubt that He knows what is best for me- but then circumstances prove otherwise when choose my own path! So trust today that He knows what is best for you!

As you dwell on these aspects of God- allow your heart to well up with praise and gratitude and pour out your worship to Him. The rest of Psalm 95 just adds more fuel to our praise today! Check it out. He is worthy. Let us live our lives as our act of worship today!
