"Security"…2 Have or Not 2 Have that is the ???

Hebrews 13:5-6.”Security comes in Jesus and if we remain in Him by faith, we need not worry about anything or anyone.”

I have run across men/woman old/young that are simply NOT happy with their lives. Some of them it could be their marriage/relationship that brings upon this unhappiness; however, it also ranges as far as not being happy with their LIVES in general (Jobs, bills, friends, family) and the LIST GOES ON. At the end of the day all of this UNHAPPINESS falls back on a lack of security within themselves and MOST IMPORTANT the lack of SECURITY they have in JESUS.

I remember (BC=B4 Christ) Monisha would fall apart when my husband (previously my son’s father) and I would break up (In our teenage yrs…MANY MANY yrs ago LOL) or have ISSUES in our relationship, I would feel like my life was over. You…..YES YOU know what I’m talking about that feeling you get in your stomach…COME  ON YOU KNOW. I remember being let go from a job once and I felt like OMGoodness what am I(YES I SAID I) going to DO. You see my SECURITY wasn’t in the Lord CLEARLY if it was I would have been saying LORD YOUR WILL BE DONE.

1 Peter 1:5 “Security lies not in our doctrines of men nor in the flesh of men but in the power of God”.

I personally know people that transition from the world to Christ that feel if the people they loved when they were in the world are not “FEELING” their walk with the ALMIGHTY KING THAT DIED FOR THEM they will fall BACK into their sinful nature to PLEASE these people. Examples: Your husband/Wife, Boyfriend/Girlfriend or your Sister/Brother or your Best friend what we have to KNOW is WE GAVE OUR LIVES TO CHRIST and their lives in the WORLD will continue but WE have to have the SECURITY in Christ to KNOW I MEAN…..KNOW that WE as believers ARE NOT missing out on ANYTHING that this world has to offer.

We have the responsibility to PRESS FWD for Jesus and be that EXAMPLE that those people NEED TO SEE DAILY. Our security SHOULD NOT be in THESE PEOPLE but in Christ and Christ ALONE. The (WC=With Christ) Monisha doesn’t CONCERN herself with being a people PLEASER I ONLY want to PLEASE God. Therefore, I can honestly tell you ANYTHING that gets in the way of my SPIRITUAL GROWTH with MY God I will say AWAY WITH IT!!! & I MEAN ANYTHING/ANYONE.

I WILL NOT surround myself around anything/anyone that I feel will STUNT my spiritual/mental GROWTH with Christ…NO, I haven’t ARRIVED (STILL HAVE A WAYS TO GO) with God so I have struggles TOO BUT my security SURELY doesn’t rely on my Husband, my kids, family, friends, jobs, or THINGS. Therefore, in your SECURE walk with Christ YOU will find it GOOD for the people to be DISTANT because it will give you the chance to have a CLEAR MIND for Christ to work on you. The Security THRU HIM that you WILL receive in that TIME ALONE is UNEXPLAINABLE BUT AWESOME.

Today, I’m encouraging SOMEONE who KNOWS/WANTS to LIVE OUT LOUD for Christ DAILY but don’t have the SECURITY that Christ tells us in 2nd Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

When our SECURITY is WEAK He will CONTINUE to KEEP us STRONG as long as we REMAIN IN His WILL. HANG IN THERE….as my sister claire told us on Monday….

Mathew 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Ask yourself this question….TRULY!!! Who are you trying to PLEASE DAILY??? Christ vs. THE WORLD??? Only YOU know the answer…OH, & GOD 😉

Today find your EVERLASTING security in the Lord….His SECURITY will NEVER give you that UNEASY feeling in your stomach. TRUST ME but MOST IMPORTANT TRUST GOD!!!!!!

Be Bold

Be TRULY Loved

Be w/o the uneasy feelings

    Some people look at you in life and the way you act toward them and get upset with you, I have been a straight shooter all my life, letting my feeling speak out loud and clear, one thing I know is that I speak the truth, so saying this my strength has been in God and the security he has installed in me over my life, know one knows the relationship that you have with God, so why do so many people try to judge you on the way you act, if you have the strength that God has put in you, you can move forward with your walk with Christ, he will never leave you nor forsake you. Keep your SECURITY ALIVE WITH GOD.

  9. HANK LLOYD says:

    The Bible promises a place of safety beyond what most Christians experience.

    “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!’ For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.” (Psalm 91:1-4)

    I believe it is possible to experience the protection of God the way King David did. I long to experience God this way. I am sure that you do also.

    So keep your Security in God, he will never leave you.

    Why Understand Security in Yourself Better?

    We are caught in a cycle. The result of filling our desire for God—apart from Him—is a complicated mix of pride, insecurity, shame, fear, unwanted behaviors, damaging reactions, and deeply painful memories of being hurt by earthly disappointments.

    The better we understand ourselves and our need for God, the more effectively we can deal with the obstacles that keep us from Him. It is time to break out of the cycle! It is time to turn and feast on God!

    “Understanding Yourself” is practical evidence why you should believe God will draw near to you intensely enough that earthly sources are no longer nearly as much of a distraction.

    Great word, sis! So many overlapping messages for God’s people to keep the faith and trust in Him. I feel wobbly on my young legs in Christ at times, but knowing that my only true security, peace and satisfaction comes from Him keeps me right under His covering. You’re right. I no longer get that uneasy feeling in my stomach. Love you, sis!
