Devotion: Illusion of Safety

No matter what precautions we take for our safety, and we do need to use common sense, life happens. We cannot predict many illnesses, accidents or tragedies.

Fear is not the answer. Cocooning ourselves only gives the illusion of safety. The answer is to have such a close relationship with Jesus that we rest secure and trust Him as our protector, provider and our peace here and now as well as our future in Heaven with Him.

Whatever happens here, God is not surprised. He created us, loves us, and comforts in time of pain and need when we turn to Him. Most of all know that He’s got this.

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
—Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
