Secure in Christ
“Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.” Micah 7:8 (NIV)
A committed follower of Jesus Christ is never really down and defeated by an enemy. Evil men may assault you, disease may cripple you, grief may paralyze you, but its effects, as painful as they may be, is not your end because the Lord has not forsaken you. The sorrows inflicted upon you do not define your future, because your eternity is securely defined in Christ.
We are not hopelessly trapped in the circumstances of this temporal world. Our hope is in the Lord Jesus and life belongs to His eternal home. We have reason to take heart because our security is not of this earth but is of Heaven.
Let’s pray today that our faith may rest in the secure promise of eternity in Christ Jesus.
