When you read this verse, is the focus on your ability to walk uprightly without tripping, or on God’s ability to keep you from stumbling?
It’s on Him! He is able!
God doesn’t want you to have more faith in your ability to mess things up, than in His ability to fix them. He is able! In His infinite wisdom and goodness, He can and will incorporate even your weaknesses and failings into His amazing plan to work all things together for your good. He is ever drawing you closer to His heart and perfecting all things that concern you.
Jude addresses this letter to “those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ”(v. 1, ESV). That’s you, dear one.
- You are called – He spoke out your name, marking you for Himself before you were even conceived.
- You are beloved in Daddy God – He esteems you as precious as the blood of His Son.
- And you are kept for Jesus – He is, right now, and for the rest of your life, exercising His mighty power to keep anyone or anything from snatching you out of His hand. You are preserved with exceeding great love for the wedding feast of the Lamb!
He is able! He will present you blameless before His throne when that glorious Day comes. HE will do this, and HE will receive all the glory!
