There is incomparable safety in God’s will. There are days when the challenges looming on the horizon seem to be packing the destructive force of an F5 tornado. That’s when I make the choice which makes ALL the difference—God’s way or mine. When I choose to tackle the projectiles flung from the tornado—without God—I’m playing defense–and I’m alone. God knows the path of the tornado and He always plays offense because no force is ever strong enough to take Him. If I’m taking on the tornado without God it’s because I’m either too terrified to be smart or too ignorant to be terrified. God’s will is the wisest and safest place to live.

When I find myself out of God’s will, I must get back. Thus, with a heart of repentance and trust, I pray: “O God–I’m sorry. Please lead me back to Your will.” I must despise the sin which caused me to stray. Sin is the enemy of my safety. Sometimes it’s “just” worry–which is a sneaky and terrible sin because it’s doubting the very character of God! No sin is ever worth forfeiting our security in God. When we become accustomed to fighting battles WITH God; we don’t ever want to fight WITHOUT Him. The Bible says: “O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure. For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat; for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall.” (Isaiah‬ ‭25:1, 4‬)

God is so faithful. We rarely know how He will handle the storm–but He always does. He does the unimaginable. Though evil constantly threatens to crush us, we need not fear. God’s children may walk boldly in the shadow of our Almighty Father. There–evil is defeated by grace! God’s will is the most secure place we’ll ever live!
