Day 3- SECURITY

 

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. – Isaiah 26:3

What is your security based off of? Is it your education? Experience in a trade? Maybe it’s in your spouse or a loved one?

Is the foundation of your security based on how much money you make? All these things are great and important, but the problem we have is that these things have a weak foundation.

The Bible says not to boast in your riches, wisdom or strength but to boast in the fact that you know and understand the Lord (Jeremiah 9:23). True security will only be found in one place, in the presence of God. When we dwell daily in the presence of the Most High, His supernatural peace starts to rule and guard our hearts. True peace that gives security is only found in His presence!!

I have tried to attain the peace of God by doing good works and by helping others in need. I have also tried attaining the peace of God by studying the Bible and memorizing as much scripture that I possibly can. These things are good and necessary to have an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father, but the peace of God that brings true security is only found in having a fresh encounter of His presence on a daily basis.

The Lord is calling you to be still long enough so He can saturate you today with His peace. Shut the phone off, get off of social media, and remove all the distractions that come between you and the Father. Security only comes when the Father is present. Will you be still long enough to experience His presence?

PRAYER:  Holy Spirit help me not to be so distracted when I am trying to spend time with Jesus. Help me to remove all obstacles that come between me and the Father.

I need to experience true peace so I may live in true security. In Jesus name, Amen.
