Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5
We are kept by the power of God. There are some who truly believe and fear that they can lose their salvation. I personal went through this and it sent me into a deep depression that debilitated my life. I ended up in a psychiatric hospital on different occasions and even became suicidal.
All of it was a lie of Satan. When we truly understand the grace, mercy, and love of God we understand it is He who saves us and He who keeps us. In ourselves we can do nothing. We are warned at different times in God’s word about wandering away. But the Holy Spirit will not let us go and sometimes He allows us to go through some very painful things to teach us and keep us.
Our inheritance through Christ is far greater than we will ever understand. It is kept for us in Heaven and our focus should always be upon the Lord and His kingdom. In this world we will have suffering and we will have trouble. But through it all the Lord is refining and transforming us. May we draw near and allow the Lord to strengthen and carry us.
