I was thinking yesterday about the insecurity of our world compared to 20 years ago. It seems like everything is so volatile and fragile. This causes stress, uneasiness, and worry in our society. We are worried and stressed out about the insecurity in the economy, gas prices, government, Iran, trade with China, presidential elections, local issues, personal finances, safety, health, and on and on. In our every increasing insecure world, the security of Christ is truly not optional. It is necessary for inner well-being, wholeness, and even sanity. If we put our trust in things that are not absolute and stable, we will be insecure and our lives will reflect the instability of what we have trusted in. Where is our greatest trust? Where is your security based? If is not Jesus than I am sure you have been powerfully disappointed. To truly be secure and confident in the future, we have to put our life in the hands of the Lord who is the one who hold the future. We have to have hope for this life and for eternity. We must fully trust in God, to truly be secure and to walk in the faith-filled life God intends for us. Here is a verse that comes to mind. I love this verse from Psalms, so read this over a couple of times, and evaluate in your own life about where your trust is, and where your security lies. It only take a minute in prayer, exercising faith, to alter the security of our soul.
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. ” Psalm 20:7
