Many people in the world depend on their wealth, popularity, power and beauty to make them feel secure. But those things do not give permanent security. When these people lose their wealth or good looks or become sick, they are devastated.
But God gives us security that is guaranteed. What happens if we lose our health? Psalm 73:26 says, “Maybe my mind and body will become weak, but God is my source of strength.” What happens if we lose our wealth? Verse 17b of our Bible Reading tells us, “Money cannot be trusted, but God takes care of us richly. He gives us everything to enjoy.” What happens if we lose our good looks or grow old? 1 Samuel 16:7b assures us, “People judge by what is on the outside, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Our security comes from God, not from temporary things in this world. Depend on Him and His Word today!
