What God Keeps

"The LORD bless thee, and keep thee" (Numbers 6:24).

Since God is omnipotent, when He keeps something, it is permanent--a fact readily seen in Scriptures. The true child of God should constantly rejoice in God's keeping power. Listed are a number of examples of what God keeps:

He keeps us from losing our salvation: "Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy" (Jude 24). "Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are" (John 17:11).

He keeps us from stumbling: "He will keep the feet of His saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness" (I Samuel 2:9). "For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone" (Psalm 91:11-12).

He keeps us as a treasure: "Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings" (Psalm 17:8). "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:7). "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee" (Isaiah 26:3).

He will keep us from the coming tribulation: "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth" (Revelation 3:10).

"He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand" (Psalm 121:3-5). NPS
