5 Minutes from the Heart: Safe

822ce3305f783476cd8dc1d7b00946cfWe often think of God as our safe place, our refuge, our shelter in the storm, but isn’t he also the one who asks that we step out of our comfort zone to love Him and his people? Isn’t He the one who asks us to be brave and have a reckless faith? He asks us to believe in the unbelievable, and reach for the seemingly unattainable. He wants us to seek Him at all cost; to step out in faith, believing that He will do things that we feel unsafe asking Him to do. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7 that he has not given us the Spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. This power in Him makes it safe for us to take steps without fear. His love gives us courage to accept those callings that our flesh feels danger in carrying out. A sound mind gives us clarity in understanding that while He is our safe place, our refuge and our shelter not only when we are sitting in our homes reading our Bibles, but even more so when we are walking out our faith in uneasy places. He keeps us safest where we are most vulnerable; where we share His love with others.

Linking with Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday, a time to write for just 5 minutes without editing. Today’s prompt is safe.

  1. “He keeps us safest where we are most vulnerable; where we share His love with others.” I love this. I’m still trying to get used to Him being safest. That I can pour out my heart and He understands it even if I don’t like what comes out. He isn’t going to stop loving me. I think that would help me love instead of please people. Thanks for sharing. Visiting from fmf. ❤️

  2. Such beautiful words and such truth, “He keeps us safest where we are most vulnerable; where we share His love with others.” I am your neighbor at Five Minute Friday. Blessings my friend.
