Security is a big issue in our modern society. We work for financial security. We travel through airport security. We have security codes for our computers and security systems in our homes.
However, this week's first scripture reading from Ezekial serves to remind us about the ultimate security in our lives – God's power and protection.
Under God's loving care, all creation is nurtured. All the accomplishments of mankind in the world cannot provide the security that God gives us. God assures us that He will be faithful to His covenant promise to bless us and to guide us.
If this concept of security is hard to grasp or if God sometimes seems far away, trust that He is there to protect us.
We have faith in what Proverbs 3:5 tells us: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."
