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, “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 a man for safety?” Isn’t God awesome? He has a way of revealing himself to us if we pay attention. I question now whose arms I was trying to be safe in. This made my love for God to intensify and start a closer 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. When Mother’s feeble body couldn’t make it anymore and she knew she had finished this race, God was there. When the doctors told me my career as an Engineer was over and I thought my life was over, God was there. When I lay in the hospital due to the pills I accidentally took, which should have taken my life, God was there. When my beautiful 20-year marriage ended and I felt all alone in this world, God was there. When my SUV flipped over 3 times and I walked, did you hear me, walked away from a totaled car, God was there. Not Man, God kept me Safe! A wise man, Dr. John R. Adolph, wrote about Making Love in the Right Position. This message made me think about what I had been seeking while I was making love in the wrong position. I now know I was seeking safety in the wrong arms. Praise God I was already Safe in HIS Arms!!! Hallelujah!! Due to his forgiveness and loving spirit, I can now love HIM the way I need to, CAN YOU?
