Backing into my driveway today, from my rear view mirror, I could see the sign planted in the ground adjacent to the garage. It said, “This house is secured by ADT.” I needed this reminder from God. Because, while I might forget it — while I might feel alone, left behind, broken or tired, the truth is: I have personal security. And, so do you.
We all walk secured and protected by God: He holds our hand, He keeps our foot from slipping, He gives us his name, His strong tower and He always defends us.
“The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” (Ex. 14:14)
We have personal security!
This is a vital truth to remember. It is one to return to often, because, like colanders, we only hold Living Water until the gravity of the world pulls it out.
When empty, we wonder:
Is God good?
Will he really help me?
Do I have what it takes?
How will I ever survive?
Does God really care?
I found myself in this place today: I was drained, discouraged and down in the dumps. Who knows why!
But, I pulled on security. Quiet time with God is my security. It is likely yours too. It is what protects our mind in Christ Jesus.
As I prayer walked, God reminded me:
- He can do all things. He created this world; he can create new circumstances.
- In the world I might feel weak; but when I walk with him, I am strong.
- Appearances mean nothing; his truth and my status as daughter means everything.
- He has created me in advance for good works and these good works he will see through.
- If I keep coming to God, He’ll keep showing me what to do.
We all have home security. It is called getting alone with him who assures you, you are: 1. safe 2. loved and, 3. His, forever.
In Christ, you cannot be invaded.
