How can we walk in safety in an unsafe world? In certainty in the midst of uncertainty? In love in the midst of hate? In peace in the midst of despair? How can we remain stable in the midst of so much instability?
Without a sense of security, we easily give way to doubt and fear. News of catastrophic events, terrorist attacks and natural disasters understandably adds fear to our sorrow. A positive outlook becomes difficult when the unexpected trials increase in frequency. The tardiness of a loved one stirs up worry and anxiety. A negative doctor’s report quickly brings thoughts of possible death. Even a high school graduate hesitates at the pursuit of higher education because of the uncertainty of his future. Jesus is our only hope. He enables us to remain unshakable.
When we turn to the Lord, we find He becomes a shelter we can count on in all circumstances. We can rest secure in His loving care. As our focus stays on Him, our security in Him grows. Our insecurities disappear as we see He always appears in our time of need. How faithful is our God! We look back on God’s protection in unsafe situations and trust Him, from glory to glory!
Psalms 61:3-4 “For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.”
