Finding Security in God by Amy Gadomski

Today we are told to find security in our jobs, home, and family. When in fact, we should be looking somewhere else for security. Our security is found in Jesus Christ, not anything from this world. In order to find this security and obtain God’s peace, we must look to Him for hope. In Psalm 62:1-2 it says, “Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.” (KJV) In these verses David explains through images what God’s security looks like to us. David depicts God as a rock. What traits of God come to mind when David uses this analogy. I think of God as being steadfast, unmovable, and unchanging. Knowing my Heavenly Father is a rock comforts me and creates a sense of security in my life. Not only is God our rock but He is our salvation and defense. When we are in need of being rescued God will always be our fortress. Through him we can find rest, peace and security. We as Christians must learn to put our trust in God and not the things of this world. By doing so, we will find security in Jesus Christ and live a full life. At the end of this passage David says this, “I shall not be greatly moved.” Here he depicts having security in God. Since He is our rock, our salvation, and defense we can feel secure. Nothing in this world can take us away from the palm of His hand. Once we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior we will always be safe and secure. Our security will no longer we found in our jobs, our homes, or our families. Our security will only be found in God.
