Security Systems | Devotional by Marilyn Ehle

The Lord is my power and my defend; my coronary heart trusts in Him, and He helps me. My coronary heart leaps for pleasure, and with my track I reward Him. Psalm 28:7

After a theft my mom had a safety system put in. I reside far-off and thought this was a wonderful thought, offering each bodily security and emotional confidence. The corporate knowledgeable defined the system in nice element and left materials describing its features and operation on the desk.

Simply previous to exiting the home, a sequence of digits must be keyed in to a small panel to allow the system. Anybody who tried to enter illegally would instantly have their eardrums bombarded with a piercing sound that might deter the wrongdoer and likewise alert neighbors and passersby. The knowledgeable had additionally emphasised how essential it was to observe the process for re-entering the home. My Mother wanted to unlock the door and quicklyvery quicklykey within the disarm button so the alarm could be deactivated.

What was meant to be one thing that eased my moms thoughts in a short time turned a serious irritant. Whereas she remembered the exit technique, coming into was typically extra sophisticated. With arms stuffed with groceries, mom would unlock the door and rush to reply the ringing cellphone. Inside seconds the screaming blare of the system would shock not solely the neighbors however ship my panicked mom to the numbered panel the place she promptly forgot which button to push.

We who’re Christ-followers have a foolproof safety system: God Himself. He guarantees to by no means go away or forsake us, to be with us wherever we go, to gentle the trail forward of us and encompass us with His love. We expertise that safety not by pushing buttons however, says King David, by trusting in Him.

In quoting the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One in all Israel, the prophet Isaiah data an exceptional safety promise:

In returning and relaxation you shall be saved; in quietness and in belief shall be your power.

However then 4 essential and sobering phrases are added:

However you have been unwilling. (Isaiah 30:15)

We is not going to expertise the fullness of Gods safety system except we’re prepared to return and relaxation.

Query: How are you doing with resting in Gods plan in your life?

How are you going to place extra belief in Him in the present day?
