"Whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."
Where do I find security?
Discovering the answer to that question is a universal quest. Mankind has addressed the basic human drive for security through such avenues as the police, the military, insurance policies, investments, and governmental social programs. These efforts cost billions of dollars each year.
Yet, in spite of our best attempts, in most instances, we are ultimately powerless to achieve real security. In fact, our only hope of attaining genuine security is to first come to grips with the fact that any man-made agency is powerless to provide it in the end. Many circumstances remain totally outside our control.
Thankfully, there is another source of security we can turn to—one that is completely different in nature and in the type of security it offers. This alternative source can provide both total and permanent security. What is it? It is the wisdom of God.
Legendary Bible teacher Derek Prince explores various ways in which God provides security, highlighting the conditions we must meet in order to qualify for His protection in each area of our lives—spiritual, physical, financial, and so forth—as well as be protected from fear and worry, discouragement and depression, and criticism and lies.
We must have a solid foundation that can endure the pressures and difficulties we inevitably face. That foundation is the Word of God and the wisdom it provides. God's wisdom reveals His eternal nature, contains His everlasting counsel, and shows us the way through the shifting sands of time to the Eternal Rock upon which we can all build with absolute confidence.
