Psalm 16:8 ESV, “I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.”
We live in a world that is constantly changing, and even in our own lives we often experience changes that can leave us feeling insecure. There is no guarantee that tomorrow will be like today, or that today will be like tomorrow. Not only do situations change, but people change. Sometimes we have moments that we’re not even completely aware of what is causing us to feel shaky and insecure. We just know that we’re not ourselves.
During these frustrating times, prayer truly works. A short (or long) talk with the Father will set us back on the right track. Talking to Him reminds us of His continuous presence with us, and allows us to refocus on what matters most. Negative, hopeless thoughts are not God’s will for us. Proclaiming what God’s Word says, will fill us with joy and hope.
Our security lies in the Lord. When we allow Him to be the anchor of our souls, we can be confident that He will see us through and cause everything to work out for our good. When you find yourself wrestling with insecurity, remember He who lives within you, is greater than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4). Then boldly proclaim to yourself and your situation, “I shall not be shaken.”
