The Security That Comes From A Father

The fruit of that righteousness will be peace;
its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.
My people will live in peaceful dwelling places,
in secure homes,
in undisturbed places of rest.
— Isaiah 32:17-18


When it comes to relationships, careers, or health, it seems as though nothing is secure. Too many people have been affected by divorce or the absence of a father. When people make a choice to just up and leave with no moral obligation to their family, their family's security becomes threatened. Sadly, that way of doing things is prevalent in our generation; no one takes responsibility for anything! 

Your earthly father might stink, but you can trust your Heavenly Father. Deuteronomy 31:8 says “Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.” God’s promise to His children is to never fail or abandon them. That may seem foreign to you, you may even doubt it, but God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19)! 

Guaranteed security comes from God. A life full of fear, uncertainty, anxiety and chaos is for those who are fatherless. But if you’ve accepted Jesus Christ as Lord over your life, the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:18, “And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.” He will be your Father! 

Isaiah 32:17-18 talks about the wonderful perks in having a Father who never fails. Your Heavenly Father will give you peace, quietness, and confidence forever. God’s children will also dwell in peaceful places, in secure homes, and in undisturbed places of rest. All these things are guaranteed for YOU and me! Don’t go another day in life’s uncertainty. You can be confident and secure knowing God will bring you peace and quiet. Your home doesn't have to be the breeding ground for turmoil and unrest. You don't have to live in fear wondering what tomorrow might bring. You don't have to live in anxiety thinking about your health failing. God wants to help you. Come to the realization of who your Father is!! Receive God’s wonderful security, peace and rest today! In Jesus' name!
