Security

What makes you feel secure? Money, family, rest?

I believe that true security comes from surrender to God...His plan and purpose for your life. This is why one of our statements of faith at The Way is:

I gain my security, success and significance thru my surrender to God.  My obedience to Him and His Word is the key to my joy.

You see, where you security, success and significance is found...you will find your heart and mind. That is where you dwell. If you wonder what is truly important to a person just find out what they spend time thinking about. The Word says this: 

No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭24-34‬ NLT)

Rather than worry and fret about things we can't control let's put our trust in God who is already in control! Today and in the future, find your security in God as you surrender to His good plan for you!
