Isaiah, a prophet of God, wrote “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places, Though hail comes down on the forest, And the city is brought low in humiliation” (32:18-19).
In the troublesome times we all face today isn’t it great to know that our Father is watching out for us?
Our God has always been a protecting God. No matter what is happening around us Christians can take comfort in the knowledge that our place in heaven is secure. Our homes may be lost, the savings for retirement might be gone but our place in the mansion above is always there waiting for us.
In writing to the Roman brethren, the apostle Paul had this to say about feeling secure: “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (8:31).
Children of God will not let the present trouble worry them because they have the faith that “overcometh the world” (1 John 5:4).
