Security is found not in the absence of danger, but in the presence of the Lord. Once we have trusted Christ and become a member of God’s family, he promises never to leave us. Nothing will separate us from him; we are safe and secure in his care.
Jesus promises to be with us forever. Though we still encounter trials and difficulties, he will be with us in the midst of them. We need not fear that he will forsake or abandon us. He will be faithful to us, even if we are unfaithful. What amazing love!
