held safe in his arms

 

held safe in His armsWho are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:5

We that are saved are “kept” by the power of God. This word “kept” in 1 Peter 1:5 is a military term. It literally means to be garrisoned about as soldiers around a fort. Being kept implies both danger and deliverance; we may be attacked, but we shall not be overcome.

Think of the power of God as a fortress and you are on the inside. Now how do you feel? Pretty safe, right? So many times we think that we keep ourselves safe. But it is God keeping us..

A father was crossing a street with his son. The son had hold of his daddy’s hand, then the light changed and the cars surged forward.  The father grabbed his son’s chubby little hand and almost lifted his son across the street to escape the oncoming traffic.

This is the way God holds us. Psalm 37:24 promises:

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with His hand. Psalms 37:24
