True Security

If we have the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour,
we can hold fast to all the promises given to His people in His Word.
Only when we are in Him is true security to be found.

Spurgeon always encourages my heart.
This particular quote comes from a reading that ministered
comfort on a day when comfort was needed.
It's always a good thing to redirect our gaze on those things
that are true.  On those things that are stabilizing and do not move.

Our Great God never changes.
How often we must remind ourselves of this!

* "All things are safe in Jehovah's hands; what we entrust to the Lord will be secure, 
both now and in that day of days towards which we are hastening.
It is peaceful living, and glorious dying, to repose in the care of heaven.

At all times we should commit our all to Jesus' faithful hand;
then, though life may hang on a thread,
and adversities may multiply as the sands of the sea,
our soul shall dwell at ease, and delight itself in quiet resting places....

...Past deliverances are strong pleas for present assistance.
What the Lord has done He will do again,
for He changes not.  He is faithful to His promises,
and gracious to his saints; He will not turn away from His people." *

May the Lord be your everything.
Whatever it is that you may be facing...HE is bigger.

Happy Wednesday!
With Love, Camille

Amen!!! I learn this lesson every day. True security is only in Jesus Christ, security in anything else, is simply an illusion.
