Security in Christ
I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.Psalm 16:8
Our security can be described by what we trust to provide for our well-being and what gives us well-founded confidence and peace. How do we find confidence and peace when we hear about the troubling things in the world every time we listen to the news or read the newspaper. According to Biblical prophecy the world may not get any better in the last days.
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. (2 Timothy 3 1-4)
Life brings trials and tribulations, and we can lose our worldly security. How can we truly live secure in a world threatened by wars, economic collapse, or major disasters?
If worldly things are our security, Satan’s goal is to use those things against us to steal our soul’ and we ask ourselves where is God? If Christ is our security, our worldly blessings will be used for his glory, with his promise to provide. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)
How can we have security in this troubled world if we are not confident of our eternal life in heaven? Our security is grounded in knowing that whatever happens in this life is temporary, and eternal life is our home, where life is perfect forever.
Today walk with the Lord, commune with him and know he is with you every second of the day and desires to help you in every situation you experience. Invite him into your life and seek his divine guidance, his divine love, and his divine power. The Lord desires to be close to you and to help you, and to keep you secure in every detail of your life.
Prayer: Lord, help me to live this day with thankfulness for eternal life waiting for me. Fill my heart with peace and joy and take away any fear that Satan tries put in my heart, in his attempt to steal my security. In Jesus Name, Amen
