We Need Security

When our car had to go back to the garage again, we were a little discouraged! We had to get new brake pads fitted. I know that we feel a lot more secure knowing that the brakes work well. Security is something we all want and need.

As a typical expat family, we have children who are used to travelling. When the children were younger, they liked to travel with something that was precious to them. Our youngest daughter, Erin, had a security blanket. That blanket was trailed through airports and hotels from country to country. She could cope much better with change as long as it was present.

Loss of Security

During a conference in America, Erin made the mistake of leaving this old and faithful item in the conference room. By the time she realised she didn’t have it the cleaning staff had already disposed of it. To anyone other than Erin was a scruffy piece of material. That blanket did not seem precious, but to her, it represented safety and security. She felt its loss deeply.

Many people look at something like a security blanket with disdain, but they fail to see the need for an anchor to hold on to when everything seems to be changing. For expats or missionaries, life appears to be in a constant state of change. When the only thing that seems sure is ‘change’ we have something far more reassuring than a security blanket. When we need security, we remind ourselves of who God is. We draw comfort from these facts.

God is Secure
  • He doesn’t change (Malachi 3:6)
  • God stays the same (Hebrews 13:8)
  • He won’t leave us (Deuteronomy 31:6)

For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of deer; He causes me to stand on the heights (2 Samuel 22:32-24)
