Somehow we are so consumed with securing only the safety of our lives we forget there is more at stake. Then again, maybe we are too afraid of what happens when we die because we are not so sure of what comes next.
Those who follow God will always have security because He will protect them – and you have to understand the security may be in this life and this comes from our purpose and calling – but definitely in the life that follows the death of our mortal bodies.
It’s worth noting that God doesn’t always give us what we think we need. And, He doesn’t always give it to us when we think we need it. He will never allow our relationship with Him to become so predictable that we mistakenly suppose that we’re in charge. He continually reinforces my dependency on Him. He wants His children to learn that their dependency on Him is actually their security in this world and the next.
