Rest Secure

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- June 12, 2011

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders”  Deuteronomy 33:12

You can rest securely in Christ. He is your security system for living. Nothing will infiltrate His care without His warning light of love being set off. He loves you so much that He provides for your security. He saves you from yourself. He saves you from hell. He saves you from sin. And, He saves you from insecure living.

You do not have to be insecure. You are secure in the Lord. You can rest securely in this. Insecurity will “eat your lunch.” Insecurity haunts your head. It is a barrage of bad thinking that slowly and most assuredly deteriorates your faith. Insecurity is to faith what water is to fire. It douses the flames of your faithfulness. Your trust in God teeters in the face of insecurity. Insecurity is food for fear. You feel like you don’t measure up as a husband, wife, parent, friend or employee. Your mind begins to play tricks on you. You feel anxious and ineffective. This is the fruit of insecure living.

However, there is no need for the follower of Jesus to be intimidated by insecurity. Insecurity is insidious and unfair. It will keep you from commitment. It will block you from the bountiful love of God. Loose living is rooted in insecurity. It unleashes you from the mores of God’s principles.

A life of insecurity will come unbundled when it is blindsided by life. Adversity can be an anvil of pain. Pain promotes insecurity. You can hide your insecurities until you are squeezed. Pressure reveals your true self. However, you do not have to RSVP to insecurity’s invitation. You can shun its influence and succumb to your Savior instead. It is in the Lord that you can rest secure.

God is there to strap you onto His back if necessary. Like a wounded soldier on the battlefield of life, you need the medic of heaven to nurture you back to health. Do not act like you have not been wounded. Your soul has been lacerated by lack of love. Your heart is hemorrhaging because of the crushing effect of rejection. Fear has inflicted a head wound of disillusionment.

Now is the time to lay your insecurities at the feet of Jesus. You are secure in Him. He binds up the brokenhearted. He is salve for your wounded soul. Jesus is security in an insecure world. He is a rock of security in the ever-shifting sands of life’s transition. He is calm in a world full of calamity. He is peace in the face of fear. He is courage in uncertain circumstances.

Therefore, rest in the security of the Lord. Cease from striving to change things that are out of your control. Trust His tender touch. Hold His hand. Follow His secure path and you will learn to rest in Him. Because you are His beloved, you are dearly and deeply loved by Him. It is His sincere heart of love that holds you secure. Rest secure in the reality that you are a cared for child of King Jesus. He has your back.

And sometimes He carries you on His back. It is a secure place to be. In Christ you are shielded from insecurity. Yes, there may be remnants of insecurity that seek attention, but in the Lord their voices remain weak and inaudible. Walk away from the insecurities of your past. It is only a seductive shell of fear.

Instead, bask in the warm canopy of God’s security. His secure love is your escort. Nothing can separate you from the love of God. He is your life. He is your motivation for living. His ways are your blueprint for life. Secure your security in Christ. You can rest secure in Him!

    Wow, I have never needed a word like this more than right now. My daughter has been gone for a couple of days and she does not answer her phone or return our text messages. She has become increasingly disrespectful and distant over the past couple of years, but lately she has fallen into a pattern of staying out very late or not returning until the following day. We have very little opportunity to communicate with her. We have been at the end of our rope for some time. Insecurity has been eating at us.

    So, Benjamin was the youngest of Jacob and the beloved of his brother Joseph and the verse you speak of is Moses blessing them in the name of
    God because they followed his Ten Commandments. So I am secure in Jesus as long as I follow the commandments and repent when I don’t?

    Tony,
    My heart goes out to you! I am assuming your daughter is in her teens’, and I can say this is a most difficult time in life for a female. I am approaching my 58th birthday, but I can remember 17, being the worst time of my life. Pray that you have made a successful implant on her that she will: inevitabley be able to fall back on. You are in my prayers!

    My heart is full. Over the years Jesus has filled me with His love and I feel overwhelmed as I read this and am reminded of how much He does actually love us. I am thank full for all of his love, even when I am not faithful at times, I know his love is there.
    Jeff if you accept Jesus you can always be secure in His love. That security will come over time, as you grow to know Him and when you begin to understand the gift of Christ you will know the love of Chirst and then the feeling of security will continue to grow. There is nothing we can do to make Him love us more. That love then fills our hearts so completely, that it over flows and we are able to love others as Jesus loves us. It is all so beautiful
    Tony you are also in my prayers, continue to be faithful, Jesus WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN, your daughter will come back to what she has been taught.

    I am the proprietor of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to broaden my wholesale side of company. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain give me some advice ! I thought that the most effective way to do this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could recommend a reputable website where I can buy Vape Shop B2B Data List I am presently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the very best choice and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Is there a means you can remove me from that service? Kudos!
