LOOKING FOR SAFE (November 12, 2021)

Safe.
 
Perhaps you mean a metal-banded box, a vault—a walk-in, high-tech cave where wealth is stored.
Perhaps you mean a spot on earth where threats are temporarily gone, where you can stretch out on the grass, fearing neither man nor beast.
 
Perhaps you mean a chosen friend, a spouse—a person who will hear your deepest hurts and never leave you by yourself.
 
You surely mean the covenanted God who is far bigger than our brokenness, our sin—who gathers up and fathers out to all who choose His open arms. “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. The Lord is like a father to His children, tender and compassionate to those who fear Him” (Psa 103: 12-13).
 
For all His untamed love and unchecked power, our God is deeply and forever safe. “He never changes or casts a shifting shadow” (James 1:17).
 
Come home to safe. And stay in grace. -Bill Knott
