“Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.””
John 10:25-30 NKJV
It is so comforting to know that no matter what happens in this world, Christ will never let you go if you follow Him. You are safe with Him. Deep inside you know this because the Holy Spirit tells you this. You have an inner peace that assures your salvation.
Years ago when I was not saved, I used to have regular anxiety based on fear. I think it was because I knew deep inside I was alone. With loneliness came a deep sense of emptiness and a lack of direction. The cycle continued as I thought I had to focus on me because there was nothing else. These feelings fed my delusion of me being supreme. Man, have I changed thanks solely to God.
So take comfort knowing you are safe no matter what happens in this world. Christ has promised He will not allow you to be snatched out of His hand. That’s why He needs to be number one in your life. So, listen to Him through the Bible, pray often with full gratitude that you are safe in Him no matter what happens around you. Dig deep inside within you and enjoy the counsel of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you for being there for me. I know with you I am safe and will never be snatched out of your hand. I never need to be afraid and lonely because you are there with me. You are number one in my life. In Jesus’ precious name.
