Sign of Security

securityRight at the right time is all I can say. I came across this verse in my BIG reading this week, “Though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again, but the wicked are brought down by calamity.” Proverbs 24:16
Think about this. Where does your security come from that you are a child of God? We become children of God by faith. We also become righteous through faith in Jesus, not through our victories, according to 2 Corinthians 5:21. Victory or defeat doesn’t make us righteous, Jesus alone does. Yet, getting up after we fall to our drug of choice is a sign that we are righteous children of God.
When we exercise the truth, we show ourselves to be what we claim to be, children of God. Proverbs 24:16 gives us another sign that we’re secure children of God – getting up after we fall. If you fail, Jesus is reaching out to pick you up. When you take His hand (i.e. apply His grace and mercy) and start walking with Him again, you’re showing who’s child you are – God’s.
Let God turn your failures into signs of security. Let His truth sink into your brain and heart. This truth brought tremendous peace to my heart this week. I hope it does to yours as well today.
