Lori, at Lori's Reflecions, is hosting Thankful Thursday again this week. The theme she chose is security.
Insecurities may plague many of us but we need not give into the fear of them. We can be confident women in a world that is ever changing and seems to grow more unstable with each passing day.
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." ~ John 16:33 (NIV)
We are promised security in so many areas of our lives.
Security in the Word of God
Security in the steadfast love of the Lord
"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;" ~ Lamentations 3:22 (ESV)
Security in the protection of God
"But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy,and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you." ~ Psalm 5:11 (ESV)
Security of eternal life with the Lord
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." ~ John 3:16 (ESV)
Security in assurance of eternal life with the Lord
"I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand." ~ John 10:28-29 (ESV)Security in the strength of the Lord
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." ~ Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
Security in the Name of the Lord
"The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe." ~ Proverbs 18:10 (ESV)Security of safety in the Lord
Security of the concern of the Lord
Security in the return of the Lord
Security of plans of the Lord
I'm sure there's more I haven't listed. We have so much to be secure in with God. May His Name be praised forever. I am so thankful for these and all other securities! What are you thankful for this week?
