How Else Can I Feel Safe?


Only the security of the spiritual man, God’s man, is certain, effective and everlasting, for he is in the “secret place of the Most High,” where he lives, moves and has his being in divine Love.

Not a day goes by without some disturbing news about our government, the economy, health, and world affairs to keep us uncertain and fearful. To an extent, we can all be fearful and remain enslaved if we indulge in these beliefs of uncertainty.

More and more I appreciate the admonition to seek God first; because only in this way do we gain the right understanding of who we are. Our spiritual understanding of the omnipotence, omnipresence, omniscience and omni-action of God can save us from any discord, since they defy the presence and power of anything but God.

With the right thought about man, which we gain as we consistently have God in all our affairs, obey His laws and do His will, we can see ourselves correctly and know that God’s man, everywhere, is satisfied and complete because he has an indestructible unity with God. He is not apt to need drugs or engage in other violent or immoral activities to feel satisfied. He is aware that because of this spiritual unity, what cannot happen to God, cannot happen to him as God’s reflection.

The more this correct view of man becomes our model for ourselves and others, we will see right behavior more often, everywhere. For example, if our service men accept themselves and others as God’s children and with humility and willingness listen to God, allow each day to unfold according to the divine perfect plan, their reward for such discipline of thought would be spiritualized thinking with the ability to discern divine direction for where to go, what to do, what to say and even what not to say.

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” (Ps. 20:7) Only under the Divine government can we feel secure. There we allow our footsteps to be ordered by God, our health is maintained, all our human affairs are balanced by the one all-knowing, all-seeing, all-wise, all-acting, and all-loving power, God.

Psalm 121 reads in part, “The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” Real security cannot come better guaranteed than that.
