I know that there is a lot of fear in some parts of this world and even here in the US in the big cities. There is so much crime these days, we need all the security that we can get to make it through this world without something terrible happening to us. I have had fear a few times but nothing like a lot of people have had to endure, so I think it's time to study the subject of 'security'. There is a place for security for the Christian. Let's check it out. This first verse tells us why we need security.
1 Peter 5: 8 "Be sober; be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." This adversary is behind all crime and everything that would cause fear in the heart for any reason.
Psalm 91: 4 "He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler."
Proverbs 18:10 "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."
Psalm 121: 7,8 "The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this time forth, even forevermore."
Psalm 4: 8 "I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
Proverbs 1: 33 "But whoever listens to Me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."
Now there is a lot of promises that should take our fears away. The condition to these promises is, that 'whoever listens to me will dwell safely. So let's study His word like we learned a couple of days ago and spend time in His word and follow His instructions and we will dwell safely. God bless you and take all your fears away. Grandma Joan
