Finding Security in an Insecure World

Daily Devotional: Finding Security in an Insecure World: Read Isaiah 40:1-8

Isaiah 40:8, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of God stands forever.” Daily we are reminded of the uncertainty of life and the frailty of man. We are continually being reminded that there is nothing certain in this world. For all our scientific knowledge, technological advancements and economic prosperity, a microscopic virus can bring us to a sense of complete helplessness. With the current crisis we become obsessed with reading the news and following the latest reports on the spread of the coronavirus. But the more we know the more apprehensive we become. However, with all the uncertainty there is a place and source of security: the scriptures. The word of God remains unchanged and relevant forever. This becomes our comfort. The Psalmist writes in Psalm 119:76, “O may Your lovingkindness comfort me, according to Your word to Your servant.” While it is important to remain informed, we should not become fixated and preoccupied with the latest news. Instead we need to become focused upon the study of God’s word. It is steadfast and eternal, and the promises of God remain true for all time. It will bring us comfort and encouragement. To live without apprehension, limit the amount you read the news and spend more time reading the Bible.
