My "wise for her age" friend, assured me it would all be OK, and she pointedly summed up what I did. (Where did she get this stuff? I do not know.) She said, "You put ALL your securities in him. We have to be careful where we put our securities."
She is exactly right of course! Not only should we inspect the fruit produced in the people's lives whom we choose to share our time and lives with on a social level, AND be discriminating in WHO we choose to hang around, but even beyond that............. Now I know.
It is so plain to me now... Who is the ONLY one that we can be 100% sure of His LOVE, and faithfulness, and perfect character? Father, God, Jesus, Savior, Provider, Rock, Shield, Fortress.... our Triune God-head.
Be prepared. Brace yourselves. Others will disappoint you and hurt you at times. You will even disappoint and hurt others.
So keep your eyes on the Father, and do the best that you can in life,
...knowing He's not finished with any of us yet !
2 Samuel 22:3
The Lord is my rock, in Him will I trust, he is my shield...
Being confident of this very thing; that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ
Put your securities FIRST in the one who deserves it.
