What type of security are we most afraid of losing? Is it our–job, savings, retirement, family, marriage partner, democratic republic, pastor, home, guns, military, etc.? Think about it–if all your savings were stolen, you lost your career, your entire family died and the government collapsed–would you be panicking? Scale it back–what if only one of these events happened? By way of comparison–what if you only lost your close relationship with God? How would the insecurity of losing closeness with Him stack up against the insecurity of losing your job? It serves us well to answer this question honestly. Why? Because it will help us change and begin placing our security in Him. He–never changes, never fails, never dies, never grows old, never runs out on us and ALWAYS loves us! God gave everything–even His own Son’s life–so we could be close to Him. He offers us eternal security. He said, “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10) He never intended for us to live dependent upon man-made institutions. However, because mankind chose to live independent from Him, we made institutions necessary to protect us from ourselves and each other. When we’re born again, we have an advantage. We’re no longer bound to the false security of man. We’re free to live directly dependent upon Him and trust in HIS Almighty power! However, because we’re so trained to rely upon man-made security, we must retrain to regain the childlike faith that was lost in the garden. It’s a process. The more we trust Him with small decisions, the more we experience His power and trustworthiness. We begin to see the sense of entrusting Him with major decisions. We find He’s very good at what He does! But–we’ll only trust Him–when we know Him. We’ll only know Him–if we spend time with Him. The most secure place in this world is living in the center of His will. Seek Him with all your heart. He’s not hiding. He’s the best security you’ll ever find.
