"The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord." Proverbs 21:31
People are becoming anxious and even fearful concerning the events that are taking place throughout the world. It looks as though we may be on the verge of another world war. Evil people are infiltrating every nation and raining down terror, destruction and death. Is there anyone who is safe from the onslaught of the enemy? There seems to be no place to hide? Is there a safe place anywhere? The answer is, "yes", there is.
The safe place is not found in a geographical location. This safe place is also a secret place. The safe place is a person-- Jesus Christ. He has provided a safe place for those who have, and those who will, put their faith and trust in Him. We are safe when we abide in Him. "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust." (Psalm 91:1,2)
Dwelling in Christ Jesus doesn't necessarily mean that we are safe physically and protected from bodily harm. It means that none of the weapons that the enemy forms against us will prosper. Why? Because they won't be able to find us-- we are dwelling in a safe place. What it means is that the weapon of fear that the enemy uses against us won't be able to find us and destroy us-- because in that safe place there is peace. The weapon of doubt won't be able to find us and destroy us-- because in that safe place we have faith. The weapons of confusion or anxiety won't be able to find us and destroy us-- because we have a sound mind that comes from dwelling in that place.
If you are going to be safe from the enemies who attack physically and spiritually, you are going to have to get to a safe place. You are going to have to get to Jesus. He offers that place of safety to all who desire to enter into it.
Have a great day. There is only one safe place where we are protected from the weapons of the enemy-- Jesus Christ.
