Everything Is Secure

  • by

My father had a bedtime routine that makes me smile to think about it. About ten o’clock each night, he would meander into the kitchen, crumble a piece of corn bread into a glass of buttermilk, and drink it. He then made the rounds to the front and back doors, checking the locks. Then he would step into the bedroom I shared with my brother and say, “Everything is secure, boys. You can go to sleep now.”

I believe God loves his children. He monitors your life. He doesn’t need to check the doors; he is the door. Nothing will come your way apart from his permission. Listen carefully and you will hear him say, “Everything is secure. You can rest now.” By his power you will “be anxious for nothing…” and discover the “peace…which passes all understanding” (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV).
