Our Security Blanket

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. (2 Samuel 22:1 NLT)

   How many of you remember Linus van Pelt who appeared in the comic strip Peanuts?  Linus was pictures carrying his "security blanket" and sucking his thumb.  Lucy and Snoopy tried different tricks to rid Linus of his security blanket, but all of them failed.

   As adults, we too cling to our security blankets involving relationships;, job titles, status symbols, country club memberships, fancy houses, and expensive cars.  Whatever our security blankets we depend upon, the truth is that none of these things offer permanent security.  They can be broken, stolen, lost, or ruined, and subject to failure.

   Our security blanket rests solely upon our relationship with Jesus Christ who is our Savior and our God.
How about you?  Have you claimed Jesus Christ as your security blanket?  Do you turn to him in time of distress and need?

Thought for the Day: Jesus is the "rock" that I want to stand on.
