Security is a basic need. Hence everybody needs it. It’s a sense of being safe. Or being safe in its self. Babies included,they love it when you cuddle them. And when you’re putting them down, they cling to you. That right there, is wanting security. Before you know it, you through them in the air and they are loving it, and asking for me. Now, they are sure of your love for them. Somehow instinctively, they now know you accept and love them. Hence trust you. Those curdles, silly faces and laughs are really good for their development.
We all need the certainty of love and acceptance. Because life happens; at times you find the sense of safety is messed up. Thereby trying to find it from friendships, or achievement, beauty, body image or a job etc. Unfortunately, all these are subject to change. And are subjective. The dilemma is you can never find total security in any of the above things. There is a way….
The greatest security in love and acceptance comes from God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because God is Love 1 John 4:8. When Jesus came to earth, he also needed his Father’s love. Luke 9:35…….”this is my beloved Son: hear him.”
I’m going to write the Scriptures below, and explain them a bit. Doing the following will help
- Read the Scriptures,
- Internalize them(think about them over and over)
- Then you can say them out to yourself over and over
- Basically, Let them be part of you and belief system.
If you do those 4 actions above. You will experience the life of Jesus Christ.
Perfect Security as you understand Scriptures
And as you do that, God will give you understanding(revelation) of them. Here we go:
A. ROMANS 10:9-11 New Living Translation. Emphasis is mine.
9. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. And believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. You will be saved
- For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Receive-salvation
As the Scriptures tell us,” Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced”
B. 2 Corinthians 5:16-17
- So we have stopped evaluating others from human stand point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now!
17.This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life has gone; a new life has begun!
You are a child of God
C. John 1:12
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. (So if you received him, you are a child of God.)
D. 1 John 3:1
Behold what manner of love the Father has given us. That we should be called children of God. And that is what we are! You are a child of God
E. Galatians 3:26
For you are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. By receiving Jesus by Faith ,you qualify as a child of God
Security in The Life
F. I John 5:12
He that has the Son has life; and he that has not the Son of God has not life
John 14:6 Jesus told them,” I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
That’s the life of God/eternal life/spiritual life. For everybody living on earth has natural life, but there is more. There is more to life than natural life. In your spirit/heart, you need to receive spiritual life by receiving Jesus. accept-invitation. When you receive the life of God, even if you die, naturally, you go to meet Jesus. And whilst on this world, you can go to the Father through Jesus to fellowship with him. And make requests plus access help from the Father. This earthly life is not easy. Therefore we need God in it. We have the privilege to go to God. For the blood of Jesus has provided access to go to the throne of God in trust.
Coming boldly to the Father
God welcomes You!
G. Hebrews 10:19
And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly/with confidence/without terror/ enter heaven’s most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus.
We need not be in terror of God, but reverence him. For He is our Father. And, He loves you and me. Therefore, has provided a way for us, to come to him. Hence, we are safe when we trust the Word of God. You cannot rely on people, because even the most ‘good’ of them change moods. They change their motives, opinions and attitudes too. You cannot rely on your feelings either. Them too are flimsy. My feelings have put me in trouble, several times 🙂 Therefore, my friends, Let’s believe the Word of our faithful God. For, He will never put us to shame.
As you read the Scriptures, and meditate on them, you will get an understanding of them. That understanding is revelation. The Scriptures will also help you grow spiritually.
