There is a risk attached to every investment made and to all decisions made by humans. This is the risk of failure! As fallible humans, this is a very real reality.
“I am standing in absolute stillness, silent before the one I love, waiting as long as it takes for him to rescue me. Only God is my Savior, and he will not fail me. For he alone is my safe place. His wrap-around presence always protects me as my champion defender. There’s no risk of failure with God! So why would I let worry paralyze me, even when troubles multiply around me? God’s glory is all around me! His wrap-around presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength. Join me, everyone! Trust only in God every moment! Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him. Believe me when I tell you—he will help you!”
Psalms 62:5-8 The Passion Translation
These verses are a huge source of comfort for me, I have even highlighted the sentences that speak so clearly to me.
Do you have other saviours apart from God?
Are you trusting in that uncle or boss?
Do you believe your intelligence is your passport through life?
It is only in absolute abandonment to God that your success is guaranteed. Is He your only safe place or you believe your answer is in you getting married or getting that job or starting that business?
Do not be deceived, the only safe place for you as a believer is in God. You know why, that is the only place where there is no risk of failure!
My exhortation to you today is to run to Him. Seek to spend time in His Presence always and to develop a deep and abiding love relationship with the Father. This is where all the answers of your heart lie.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil].
Proverbs 18:10 AMP
