Are You Safe in His Arms?

“seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matt. 6:33

Are you safe in HIS Arms?

Or are you still seeking safety in the wrong arms?

A dear friend of mine once told me years ago, “Rae, how can you truly love a man when you don’t love God the way He wants to be loved.”

Wow, that’s deep. It takes a good friend to tell it like it is. But, I have to be honest. I didn’t get it at the time. You see, I’ve been in the church all my life. I know the Word better than most. I knew I loved the Lord. What was he talking about? His words actually hurt, especially since he was a brother I was once intimately involved with. But, I knew he was telling the truth even though I had a relationship with the Lord.

It made me question, “was I loving God enough or seeking the arms of man for safety?”

Isn’t God awesome?

He has a way of revealing himself to us if we pay attention. Now, I question whose arms I was trying to be safe in. This made my love for God intensify and start a renewed relationship with HIM.

When I was barely eleven or twelve years old and had to grow up quickly due to the death of my father and sister, God was there.
