Thank God for the Promise

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.  Amen.” Jude 1: 24- 25 King James Version

Sometimes I feel discouraged like Paul did when he said “For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I” (Romans 7: 15).  I used to have a terrible temper before I was saved on August 14, 1980.  Jesus has been working in my heart for twenty nine years concerning my temper.

I rarely loose my temper now.  However, yesterday I lost my temper and I was very upset with myself.  Of course, satan is just waiting to attack us where we are the weakest.  I actually yelled at my eight week old puppy because he was doing something he should not have been doing.  I told him that I was sorry for yelling but it didn’t take the hurt look from his eyes.

I tried saying “No, Stop!” but it didn’t work so I changed the tone of my voice so I sounded stern.  That didn’t help either and I lost my temper and yelled at Prince.  I am so thankful that God doesn’t yell at us when we are being disobedient to Him.  Thank God for the promise that Jesus is going to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.

Heavenly Father, we give You thanks for the promise that one day we will be presented faultless before the presence of Your glory with exceeding joy.  May we be children You can be proud of, children who do things and say things that make You happy instead of children who make You sad.  Amen.
