I Feel Safe in You, Lord
As you know, Lord, our culture glorifies youth. Nobody welcomes the passing of time and the aging process. May I say, though, that you make aging more enjoyable? The older I get, the more I see how I was never alone, how you were always there watching me, ready to catch me, intervening at just the right time.
I panic less these days. I still can see only a few feet in front of me—the fog of life hasn’t lifted much, but I have grown in my certainty that you are ahead of me and will watch my steps. You will reveal to me what to do when it is time. You will provide resources when I need them. “Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory” (Psalm 73:23,24).
I feel safe in you, Lord. You are the One I can depend on. Your love for me is rock steady. Your purposes never waver. You have given me tastes of hardship and prosperity and benefitted me with both.
I am comforted by the absolute certainty you have given me that through your Son, Jesus, through his obedient life and innocent death and splendid resurrection, my life is already victorious. Through Jesus I am forgiven. Through Jesus I am immortal. I know you will take me to glory.
Everyone fears death on some level. Even if we’re firmly rooted in Christ, there’s so much that’s unknown about what we’ll experience. And then comes judgment, which is another thing that can cause anxiety.
But unless Jesus returns first, death is something we’ll all experience. So we want to help you face death without fear by sending you our new book, Don’t Fear the End: Your Hope of Heaven Is Secure.
This book shows you how to live fearlessly, knowing your assurance comes from Jesus who has secured your salvation from beginning to end.
Don’t Fear the End is our thank-you for your donation to help take the timeless truths of God’s Word to more people all over the world through Time of Grace. Request your copy today!
