PostSubject: Safety in God's Word   Sat Jan 14, 2017 8:19 pm

“Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors. I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your Word.” Psalm 119:24-25

I have some friends who have shared with me that they were brought up in Christian homes, but now as adults they want nothing to do with the faith in which they were raised. As a young believer, I remember what attracted me was a feeling of safety in the Word of God. One of the first things a child feels when told of Jesus’ love for him/her is a distinct sense of safety. I didn’t want to be outside that protective circle of Christ’s love. Out of gratitude for God’s care, I obeyed. But I also expected Him to preserve me and I presumed He would.

Over the course of the years, I’ve come to understand better who Jesus Christ is and what He has done for me. I've grown to appreciate my upbringing, thanking God for my parents who faithfully brought me to church and sent me to parochial schools. I know: The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous run to it, and are safe. Proverbs 18:10. The security that I’ve rested in comes from the Savior who will preserve me, if not in this world, then in the next. There may be illness, accidents, disappointments and even death awaits me, but His forever design to redeem me for His own is promised in His faithful Word. I haven’t earned it and never will but Jesus did...on the cross at Calvary.

Insight: Whether laid low or blessed beyond imagination, hold fast to God's Word: The only Word worth clinging to.

Reader's Prayer: Dear God, I realize my safety lies in Your Word and is the only thing in this life worth clinging to. Please draw me closer to You with each day You bless me with. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
