John 10:28 (AMPC): "And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand."
What a powerful promise! Just as powerful, is to understand who Jesus is extending it to. In verse 27 of John 10, Jesus said His sheep that are His own, and are continuously hearing and listening to His voice, are the ones who will never be destroyed or snatched out of His hand. Deliberately choosing to spend quality time in the presence of the Lord and in His Word of truth is what keeps our vital connection with Jesus alive. This intimate connection where we completely yield ourselves to Him, draw our strength and wisdom from Him, is where we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are completely known by Him and are secure in Him. This is where we hear and instinctively know His leading and wholeheartedly then follow whatever He says or leads us to do. That's because learning to trust, cling to and rely on the Lord this way is what will cause us to walk in the safety of His protective love, and keep us securely in the palm of His hand. Make spending time with Jesus your first priority; you will know what it is to be held securely in Him and will clearly hear which way to go, and what to do - at the exact moment you need to.
