Safe?

Well, yesterday, brought us a new president, like it or not . Last night my daughter was checking out some of her friends on facebook and noticed that one's status said something about not feeling as safe now.

I understand where she is coming from. I personally do not believe our new president will do as good of a job of standing up for our country as President Bush did.

That said however, I do still feel just as safe - NOT because of President Obama, our military, the police, or even a weapon, but because the one I am relying on for my safety hasn't changed - and that is God. My life is kept by the Lord Jesus Christ - I do not have to fear.

I am safe because my eternal future is secure. If I live to be 100 or if I do not see tomorrow, my future is settled and secure either way. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow. If you haven't made sure of where you will spend eternity - you need to before it is too late.

I am safe because I am kept by God. That doesn't mean that I will never get sick or have things happen to me, but it does mean that nothing can happen to me without it being allowed by my Father. He will keep me through what ever He allows life to bring.

We are told in Psalms and Proverbs :

Ps 33:17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
Pr 21:31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.

They had horses, we have tanks, but safety is still of the Lord.

The only ones who are truly safe are those who have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour. All of us will die one day, where you spend eternity depends on what you have done with Jesus.

All of us have sinned (Romans 3:23) and sin has a penalty - death, that is eternal separation from God in the lake of fire (Romans 6:23a and Revelation 20:14-15) Jesus took that penalty for us, He suffered Hell on the cross, bled and died for us and even knew seperation from God the Father, all so we would not have to. His blood is the only thing that can cleanse us from our sin. He died, was buried and then bodily arose, alive forevermore on the 3rd day. He wants to save you and give you a secure future, if you will only believe Him and let Him.

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

1 John 1:7b the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

There is coming a time, this world will think they have it made - the perfect leader, world peace but the Bible warns - 1Thes. 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

The only place you will find real safety and eternal security is in the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray if you haven't already done so that you will trust Him today.
