Salt of the Earth – God Calling 10/24

Our Lord, we bless Thee and thank Thee for Thy Keeping Power.

Yes! “Kept by the Power of God” is a promise, and an assurance that holds Joy and Beauty for the believing soul.

The keeping that means security, safety, is wonderful. There is, too, the keeping that implies Life, freshness, purity, the being “kept unspotted from the world.”

Then there is the keeping that I ensure to those of whom I speak as the salt of the earth.

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour it is henceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”

Only in very close contact with Me is the keeping Power realized. That keeping Power which maintains the salt at its freshest and best, and also preserves from corruption that portion of the world in which I place it.

What a work! Not by activity in this case, but simply by its existing, by its quality.

I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day. Isaiah 27:3
