Complete Safety Comes From God
September 12 - Devotion
No one can guarantee perfect security, except God. Any security measure provided by fellow human being will remain incomplete, and cannot perfectly deter unwanted circumstances. In fact, the scripture emphasized,
“No king is saved by the multitude of an army; a mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; neither shall it deliver any by its great strength” (Psalm 33:16-17).
Perfect security comes from God, and Jesus' believers have their stake in it. God will remain concerned for his children and he will keep them safe under his watchful eyes. However, people who reserve their trust in arms of flesh will be disappointed. Since, human knowledge is limited, there would be no absolutely security guarantee by anyone. (Meanwhile, man-made security is costly!) God sure security over his children will last a lifetime. To qualify for God's protection, a person must have confessed Jesus Christ as his/her personal Lord, and also exercise God's fear in all ramifications.
Dear God, please I need your guaranteed security over my life. Therefore, I humbly confess my sins and repent from them. I also confess your Son Jesus Christ as Lord, and I accept him as my personal Savior. Please establish my feet as your true child who will permanently enjoy your security and other benefits. Most importantly, please write my name in the book of life, so that I can be accepted to your heavenly kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
