LIVING SECURELY

LIVING SECURELY

We spend large amounts of money on security. Internet security, home security, personal security … there’s rarely a limit to what we will pay to find safety and protection.

GOD’S SECURITY SYSTEM

Here’s how to activate the security that only God Himself can bring.

The waywardness of the naive will kill them, but he complacency of fools will destroy then. But he who listens to Me shall live securely and will be at ease from the dread of evil. (Proverbs 1:32-22)

Listening. If you long to know outward security and inward peace, deliberately listen to God daily and intently and then follow Him explicitly. He can “lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6:13). He will "lead us in all the right paths for His name's sake" (Psalms 23:3). He will "guide us until death" (Psalm 48:14). We will be "at ease from the dread of evil."

There is no safer place to be than in the center of His will and under His direct supervision and leadership. We can run from His covering hand, but we can also humbly place ourselves under His care. He never goes to sleep and is motivated by perfect love and omnipower.

Since everyone and everything is under His ultimate control, we can rest our situation with Him. This does not mean that we will not face difficulty, hardship, or even tragedy. But it does mean that nothing can go beyond the reach of His sovereignty. We can find Divine protection.

Set the security alarm of God by listening and obeying His voice. And then lay your head down and rest.

“God is easy to live with,” Tozer also said. He is not only perfect in holiness (He must deal with sin as it comes) but also flawless in kindness. If He were a man you related to, you would find Him always doing the right, gracious, benevolent thing. You would be stunned by His interest in you; awed by His acts of kindness. Overwhelmed by His unceasing generosity.

MISSING THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Has the kingdom of God come near you? You’ve heard of Christ, seen someone in whom Christ dwelled, passed by a church on the corner, or have a Bible that a grandmother gave you years ago. Perhaps you even sit in a church every Sunday, but you have never surrendered to Christ and entered His kingdom. You never acknowledged your need and turned to Christ in faith to save you. You merely let the kingdom merely “come near.”
