Where's the safest place to live?

Monday, June 18, 2007 (6:20 am)

Psalm 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

As some of you may know, a bomb exploded in a bus within blocks of our Jerusalem apartment about three years or so ago. That morning, my wife and I, along with our newborn baby, were heading to the city center to run a few errands when suddenly, we heard the explosion. Within minutes, the sirens were screaming from every part of the city as officials quickly made their way to the scene. Later that month, I was just seconds from getting on a bus which exploded before my very eyes.

People ask us all the time– "Aren't you afraid to be living in Israel these days?" We're really not. Truth be told, there aren't too many safe places in this world anymore, are there? However, there is one very safe place we have found; It's the very safest place there is. You may have heard of it — the place is called "God's perfect will"! We all need to strive to make our home and reside there the rest of our earthly days!

You may be afraid to go to those places or do those things that God may be calling you to today. It could be to use your God-given gifts in some far away place or it could just be to walk across the street to share with a neighbor. Whatever the case may be, it's easy to get wrapped up in other people's fear, anxiety and criticism — but we have a choice. We can either give in to those fears or stand for the Lord and choose what has called us to do.

Let's submit all our fears to the Lord today and choose the latter. He will not leave our side when we step forward to do great things for God!
