Daily Devotion: S - Security

Bible Reading:  I Peter 1:1-11 

Key Verse: Verse 5 - “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Key Words: Who are kept by the power of God

Someone has said that security is our nearness to God, not our distance from danger.

Aren’t you glad that our security is not in our strength but that, as Peter said, “[We] are kept by the power of God”?

In a sermon Juan Carlos Ortiz spoke of a conversation with a circus trapeze artist.  The performer admitted the net underneath was there to keep them from breaking their necks.  Then he added, “The net also keeps us from falling.  Imagine there is no net.  We would be so nervous that we would be more likely to miss and fall.  If there wasn’t a net, we would not dare to do some of the things we do.  But because there is a net, we dare to make two turns, and once I made three turns – thanks to the net!”

Ortiz makes this observation: “We have security in God.  When we are sure in His arms, we dare to attempt big things for God.  We dare to be holy.  We dare to be obedient.  We dare, because we know the eternal arms of God will hold us if we fall.”

So let me ask you: are you attempting great things for God?  If you are a child of God’s, you are special, no matter what your feelings are telling you.

What to do:
    ✞ Attempt great things for God.
    ✞ Dare to be holy.
    ✞ Dare to be obedient.
