So many people reach out for security in anything they can find. But is it really possible for us to find true security? The dictionary defines the word “security” as “freedom from care, apprehension or doubt — a well-founded confidence.” In the midst of our struggling society and rising divorce rate (even among professing Christians), where do we turn for help?
The Bible says that true security is not found in something, but rather it is found in Someone — the Lord Jesus Christ. “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever” (Psalm 125:1, NIV). God’s desire is for everyone to come to know Him through having a personal relationship with Him and to experience His specific plan for their lives. He has made the way possible by sending Christ to die on a cross, making full payment for all of our sins. Christ offers true security for anyone who puts their trust in Him. What God does, He does forever! Although problems, trials and circumstances will inevitably face us, God’s unconditional love, His perfect plan for our lives and His promise of heaven will never change. The Apostle Paul, in writing to the Ephesians, said he prayed that “The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Ephesians 1:18).
