God didn’t rescue us to stay on the sidelines of ease and comfort. Sometimes I wish that was the case. Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to stretch myself or go out of my norm or make sacrifices or count major costs or suffer.
But our best life is to follow Jesus wherever He leads. To stick close to His side by learning more and opening our hands and taking Him at His word.
He’s with us in the den of lions.
He’s with us in moments of pain and anxiety.
He’s with us in the highest of highs.
He’s with us in the most ordinary minutes.
He is Lord and Savior, on the throne, perfect and holy and mighty and tender, and you are His. May we practice our faith from this place of security, especially in moments that don’t feel safe.
