The Fear and the unknown exists in everyone’s life, we simply can’t runaway from it. I have struggled through my doubts and worries throughout my life, especially now that I am almost graduating from college. Where will I go? Will I have a good job? Could I survive? We all have our own questions in life that we would love to get answers for, but the answers don’t always come on the times we want them too. But despite the fears and mysteries that bundle in our minds, we should all make God the center of our security. You never have to be afraid because if all is lost you know you will always have God. He is all you need and is the only one who can provide you with 100% security in your life.
Relying on people or the things of this earth will never bring a 100% satisfaction or protection for you. Rely on God and he will bring you complete peace and security. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Put you security in Christ alone. There is always safety in the word of God. Gods truth will always protect your life.
So how do we receive the security and love from God? We just simply need to call his name and he will be there for us. Romans 10:13 says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” God will listen to you when you call on him, and there is power in the name of Jesus. The story of Jesus walking on water and the disciple Peter is a great example on how we can depend on Jesus when we call him. Jesus had called peter to come out in the storm and walk on water. He was testing Peter’s faith to him. Peter stepped out but when he saw the heavy storm his faith dropped and fear filled his mind. He started to sink but when he called Jesus’s name, he was immediately lifted up. Matthew 14:29-31 says, “Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” When you call on Jesus, he listens to you immediately and he will save you because he loves you. He knows your limits and will never let you drown in the waters. He will save you just in time if you call on him.
Don’t dwell on your worries, but rather dwell in God’s love for you. God is never far from you he is just a call away. Pray and call on God and your prayers will be answered in his time. When you are feeling worried and scared, call on him and he will bring you peace. Knowing that we are his and he is ours is the only security we need in our lives. So remember, God is the ultimate security.
