Secret security - Daily Bread


He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. – Psalm 91:11

Feeling secure is a high priority in this unsafe, volatile world. A private investigation agency in Florida promises to "work diligently to restore the sense of security and safety that you and your family deserve."

The psalmist found a "secret place," where he felt safe (Psalm 91:1). And we can rest secure in that same place. He described it with these phrases.

Under the shadow of the Almighty
(v. 1). Shadows provide protection from the direct heat of the sun. If the heat is severe, the shade reduces what we actually feel. When we’re under God’s shadow, we do not face the full heat of our difficulties.

A refuge and a fortress
(v. 2). God is the strongest protector we could ever have, and we can run to Him for help. Nothing can penetrate Him to get us unless it’s part of His loving plan for our ultimate good.

Under His wings
(v. 4). God is soft and tender like a caring mother bird. When troubles rage, He draws us close. We don’t need to fear that He will cast us out – we are His.

A dwelling place
(v. 9). Our Father will be our home, our abiding place – now and forever.

True security can be found only in our Lord, who promises to save us and be near us (vv. 15-16). – Anne Cetas

Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,

Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;

Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,

Not a blast of hurry touch the Spirit there. – Havergal
