What does ‘safe’ mean to you? The more I’ve thought about what it means to feel ‘safe’, I’m realizing that there is an action that must occur first. We must trust. Trust in something or someone must occur in order for us to feel safe.
How do we know that we can eat or drink the foods and beverages we have in our pantry and refrigerator without getting sick? We read the label and have a level of trust that the contents inside are exactly what the label tells us. We read the safety features on a new vehicle, a bicycle, or a stroller for our newborn…and we trust that the manufacturer has presented all the safety features and cautions that we need to consider before purchasing.
How do we know that we are safe in God’s care? We read His Word. It’s got all the ingredients of our life listed, along with all the many safety features, and comes loaded with cautions to direct us and help keep us safe on our journey. The question is what level of trust do we put in our Savior? His promises are trustworthy and we can be sure that if God said it…we can believe it! We can trust Him.
There are so many promises in God’s Word about being safe in Him. Proverbs 18:10 is one of my favorites. “The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run into it and are safe.”
What does God say about you? You are safe!
