False Security

19 Mar

Psalm 46:1-3
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

Usually, when we think of mountains, we associate them with stability and security.  It seems to us that they will remain unchanged forever – at least from our perspective.  After all, they have been there for thousands of years.

Yet the Bible teaches us that the things in our lives which we think are immovable and secure can sometimes give way.  Without warning our lives can come crashing down around us.  Nothing on earth is absolutely unchangeable.

We must be very careful in what we put our trust in.  The things of this world are so unsure.  We cannot rest our lives on the shifting sands of society.   The stock market, the economy, our family and friends, our job, our insurance plan, and anything else you can think of is not worthy of placing our life upon.  None of these things, no matter how strong the track record, has a certain tomorrow.

Take stock of your life today.  What are you trusting in.  Anything other than Christ Himself is a disaster waiting to happen.  If you need to – place these things on the altar this day.  Make sure you are dependant upon God alone.  Only then can you truly enjoy all these other areas of your life.
