True Security

20 Mar

Psalm 46:4-6
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells.  God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.  Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

Yesterday I posted about the fact that there is nothing certain in this world.  Our trust, hope, and expectations must abide elsewhere.  We need to fix our eyes on the heavenly kingdom.

No matter what kind of trouble this world faces, the power of God remains secure.  The river of life will never fail.  If we remain in Christ, then the things that shake this world around us will not affect our walk.

Rising gas prices, economic failures, terrorist threats, and global warming are just a few of the issues that have nations in turmoil.  Through it all, the kingdom of God is still secure.  No matter what happens I know that the grace of the Lord can still reach me.  I can come to this river at any time for sustenance and refreshment.

We can face the uncertainty of life without fear.  This only comes from the knowledge that our feet are securely in a kingdom that is not of this world.

Spend time meditating upon the faithfulness of God.  Think about the times He has brought you through the difficulties you have faced in the past.  This should inspire praise and worship before Him.  Then, take your future and commit it into the Lord’s hands.  Only then will you have true security.
