Isaiah 26:3. You keep completely safe the people who maintain their faith, for they trust in you. 

Many may think this is a promise not always kept.  We need to look at the conditions required.  For most everything God will do for us there is something we must do.  Isaiah says we must maintain our faith.  We must trust God.  If we maintain our faith and trust Him, He will keep us safe.  Our question is, safe from what?  Will we ne er have an accident or sickness or loss?  No.  God does not promise to keep ua away from things that life might being our way though He does filter them.  He promises to protect us from Satan who would do all possible to take us away from God.  This is not because Satan wants us but because He doesn’t want God to have us.  When we don’t maintain our faith and trust in God we open ourselves up to the calling of Satan.  How do we maintain our faith?  That will be tomorrow’s topic.
