The ONE THING for today

Today’s Security Choice…

  • Psalm 119:89-91 (NASB) 89 Forever, O Lord, Your word [stands firm] is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness continues [to] throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands. 91 They stand this day according to Your ordinances, for all things are Your servants.

My most loved and honored Lord: Jesus Christ—all praise to Thee!11869992-peace-and-security-sign-and-sky-background

As I read today’s verse I was reminded again of how universal the need for security and order runs in the human race. And yet, these two blessings are so rare.

To this day men long for security and peace, yet even with all our bars and gates and all our bombs and barriers security is a rare commodity. But in YOU—no matter the circumstance, security and order is found.

These words sum it up well: “I am afraid” describes a condition; “I will trust” describes a volition. My volition can change my condition!” _ Jennifer Rothschild / Lessons I learned in the Dark / page 51

Today I make a choice: I choose to trust in YOU and in your forever-settled-in-heaven-Word.

  1. Good morning Pastor Kemp! Thank you for this morning’s blog. I had just finished reading the “Today’s Reading” from Bible Gateway’s C.S. Lewis Daily. They both traveled down the same road of thought. Blessings, Claudia

    Today’s Reading

    The Christian doctrine of suffering explains, I believe, a very curious fact about the world we live in. The settled happiness and security which we all desire, God withholds from us by the very nature of the world: but joy, pleasure, and merriment, He has scattered broadcast. We are never safe, but we have plenty of fun, and some ecstasy. It is not hard to see why. The security we crave would teach us to rest our hearts in this world and oppose an obstacle to our return to God: a few moments of happy love, a landscape, a symphony, a merry meeting with our friends, a bathe or a football match, have no such tendency. Our Father refreshes us on the journey with some pleasant inns, but will not encourage us to mistake them for home.
