April 22 Eternally Secure

Scripture Reading: 1 John 5:10–13

Key Verse: Ephesians 1:13

In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

Perhaps more than ever, our age is security conscious. We like the reassurance of a healthy savings account. We like the benefits that come from working for a supposedly solid company. We treasure the comfort and strength of a good marriage. Yet we must admit that even the biggest savings account can run dry, the best company can go under, and the healthiest marriage can fragment.

God wants us to look to Him for our security. He alone is the cornerstone, the rock, the stronghold, the fortress, the shelter in whom we can find safety, peace, and protection.

You are secure in your position in Him. You are “in Christ,” placed there by God Himself. He will keep you forever. Because you are a joint heir with Christ, all the blessings of heaven are yours.

Your eternal destination is fixed. Heaven is your home; no sin can change that once you place your faith in Christ.

Your past sins and mistakes have been thoroughly forgiven through Christ’s shed blood. You are a new creature in Christ. The old things have passed away.

You can carry your present problems and challenges to Him in prayer, and He promises to help and sustain you. He upholds you with His eternal grip of love. If you are looking for security, look to Christ. He never changes.

Precious Lord, I am secure in You; my eternal destination is fixed; my sins and mistakes are forgiven. I can take my problems and challenges to You, and You uphold me with the eternal grip of Your love. Thank You, Father.[1]
