Day 10: Realign From False Security To True Peace

1 Chronicles 29:11-12 "Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; You are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from You; You are the ruler of all things. In Your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all"

Devotional · · · Much of the human experience is the attempt to create a system of security that will cause us to feel safe. This system is built through habits and decisions usually centering around things like money, power, reputation, and possessions. In worship, we realign ourselves to the reality that the only true security available to us is that we rest in the hand of the Almighty. “For the life of every living thing is in His hand, and the breath of every human being.” (Job 12:10) Everything else we trust in is a shadow of security that will inevitably let us down. By being people that worship and thereby recognizing God’s holiness, we wage war against the lie that our peace can come from something that we can manufacture rather than from God. We can accept the invitation of Jesus to stop worrying, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and trust Him fully today and always (Matthew 6:25-34)

Prayer · · · Almighty God, I praise You for your sovereignty! I acknowledge that You are in control of all things in this universe. I release to You those issues in my life that I have given too much power to. I ask that You remind me of Your constant faithfulness. Fill me up Lord with Your peace that surpasses all understanding as I bring my life to You in prayer and petition. (Philippians 4:6-7)
