Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge.
Psalms 16:1 (NLT)

Safety, it can be evasive. You can be in the safest place on earth and still feel insecure. The feeling of being unsafe is not a location; it is a state of mind. It is waking up worrying about doing something wrong that day, or dreading that someone will not be pleased with you. It is trying to stay out of trouble and being ready to please everyone. It is walking through our day as if a predator is in the room. We are never fully peaceful, always on guard. David knew trouble. But he also knew safety. He was safe in the cave even when Saul’s army was at the foot of the mountain. Why? Because He knew how to live in God’s presence. He writes, “I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence.” God’s presence and His unconditional love for you trumps all fear. Today, go in peace. God’s presence is with you, He is right beside You and you are safe.

Dear Father, I am so tired of feeling unsafe. Today, I surrender my fears to You. I accept Your love for me. Help me be conscious of Your loving presence. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
