Out of the Pit: IS Series

God knows. Those two words can bring so much comfort, or it can bring fear and shame. I pray it brings comfort, but if not, that’s part of this healing process. God knows what you’re going through. He knows it all before you even tell him. He formed you, after all. But because the Lord knows all your weaknesses, struggles, and failures, which are so many, He also knows how to help you.

Listen to me on this one: you are never, ever going to find your security in outward beauty, in your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend, your friends, in success, or money. Nothing on this world is going to give you security. It hurts me a little seeing those words on the screen, because that’s where I sought after my security. I’m sure you’re way ahead of me now, but let’s slow down. How many times do we feel down about ourselves or our lives, and we go to our friends and loved ones for sympathy/help/comfort? And how many times are we disappointed by said loved ones because they can’t provide the real security we need? I think I can answer for all of us and say ALL the time. It’s sad, but true. But let’s not start feeling insecure about our insecurities (anybody with me on that one?). Let’s take it all to the true Giver of all security and comfort. Proverbs 3:26 is a verse that always comes to mind when writing about insecurity. It says: The Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being shaken. Read that again. If the Lord is our confidence, our security, our foot will never be shaken. No more falling into that pit. Because God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9).
