Secure in Father’s Hand!
Scripture reading for April 19th: John 10
Key Scriptures for over-comers: John 10:27-30 “My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and the Father are One.”.
Jesus wanted His disciples to know security in their relationship with the Father through faith in Him. His disciples would hear His voice and understand His words and they would follow Him. As they followed, no one would snatch them out of the Father’s hand! God is more powerful than any man or force of hell! They were secure and would never perish! We can have confidence in our Good Shepherd’s voice and eternal word!
Observations for over-comers: Overcomers don’t live in fear and doubt about their salvation. They know the Master’s voice and trust fully in His promise! “My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to My words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.” (Proverbs 4:20-22)
