God Is Our Safety

“I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)

For many nights after the terrorists' attacks on the World Trade towers, Leah used to lie awake for hours, because she was afraid. As soon as she snuggled under the covers in the darkness of her room, Leah imagined she was on one of those planes, and she could "see" the terrorists’ angry, hateful faces glaring at her. She just could not get them out of her mind.

After several sleepless nights, it finally occurred to Leah that she did not need to carry her burden of fear all by herself! She prayed to God that He would help her to trust Him with her future, and she prayed that He would take away her fears about the terrorists. It was comforting to leave her fright and worry at the feet of Jesus, knowing that He would be her Protector. Nothing in the world could happen without Him allowing it.

Sometimes we all have feelings of fear. But when we fight away our fear with God’s Word as our sword, we can be comforted, and we can rest.

God is in control of everything that happens in the world, and we can trust Him with our fears .

Question & Answer

Q Does God give to everyone good things they do not deserve?

A Yes, because God is a gracious God Who delights in freely giving good things to His creatures. Psalm 145:8-9 – "The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works."

 

BIG Christian Word

Doctrine – (DOK-trin)

A "doctrine" is something that is taught about a particular topic. It is a teaching. Some examples of Bible doctrines are the teachings of God's perfect attributes; the Trinity; Creationism; Scripture's inspiration; humankind's sinfulness; and Jesus Christ's ability to be the perfect Prophet, Priest, and King. Every biblical doctrine is important because God's Word is how He teaches us about Himself – Who He is, what He is doing, and what He expects of us. 2 Timothy 2:15 – "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
