Today I want to explore the question, is it even possible to feel secure in an Insecure World?
It seems like society and the world around us is getting crazier and crazier.. Wars have broken out around the globe, saber rattling is taking place on a daily basis, only instead of sabers, people are threatening to unleash nuclear, biological weapons, or terrorist attacks. Christians encounter challenges or ridicule about their faith and beliefs. Now we’re being hammered on a daily basis about a global Pandemic, and of course as a result of all the chaos and confusion more folks are saying the end times are here and doing their best to play on everyone’s emotions. The world is seeming more and more insecure with each passing minute, we seem to desperately seeking security in an insecure world.
Many people blame the media, but it’s not their fault, we must realize that the purpose of the media is not always to just inform us, it is to get an emotional response and thus generate what we call eyeballs and clicks. The more they can motivate a person to read, discuss, or think about what they are saying, writing, or showing, the more money they can make. When this is coupled with today’s social media, and the lack of thought that goes into most people’s posts or “shares”, there is an onslaught of most often negative news, and as a result, more and more of us are feeling insecure, not only about today, but also about the future.
Today I want to look at the whole idea of seeking security in an insecure world. Before I begin let’s start with a prayer – ‘Dear Heavenly Father, I know that you are in charge of the Universe. I know that you have a grand plan for us. I believe that you sent your Son, my Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ to live and walk among us and to die for us. I believe that you raised Him from the grave and that He sits at your right hand. Father, I ask that you send the Holy Spirit into my life whenever I begin to feel insecure when pressured by the world. Thank you – Amen.’
