In the world but not of it

True security…

Filed under: Uncategorized — In the world but not of it @ 5:00 am

Read this passage from Psalms 33 carefully and stop to
consider the depth of each verse and how it applies to your own life…

13 The LORD looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race.

14 From his throne he observes all who live on the earth.

15 He made their hearts, so he understands everything they
do.

16 The best-equipped army cannot save a king, nor is
great strength enough to save a warrior.

17 Don’t count on your warhorse to give you victory,
for all its strength, it cannot save you.

18 But the LORD watches over those who fear him,
those who rely on his unfailing love.

19 He rescues them from death and keeps them
alive
in times of famine.

20 We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield.

21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy
name.

22 Let your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our
hope is in you alone.

Insecurity is not something we need to be taught about.

Security is something we crave. We want to know that our
bills are going to be paid without delay, that there is food in the fridge, gas
in the car and a vacation to look forward to. It’s ironic how we can even have
such concerns when so many of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the
world have so little.

Our insecurities are in many cases just hidden forms of
pride. Pride has several masks that it likes to parade around with and
insecurity is one of them. It shows, especially for the Christian, that their
focus is still on themselves and not on God.

Yet in this passage we see clearly that it is God who does
it all. He is everything and everywhere…

If you look only at the terms in red above you see that He
has all the bases covered. There is nothing missing or separated from His care
and protection. He provides all the security we crave and the He is the ultimate
answer to any insecurity we have.

Why do we rip ourselves off continuously by allowing
discouragement and depression to fill us when we have immediate and unmeasured
access to the God of the universe, the only God and the one true God?

Yes, meditate on these verses today. Resolve once and for all
in your heart and mind that if you are fully committed to Him then nothing can
separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:39) and nothing can reach your life
without going through the loving hands of the Father…
