God comes with a safety warning

He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. Ps. 18:2b

God’s love and grace are safe. Our redeemed souls are safe. But trusting Him may threaten our personal security. Our plans are not safe. Our status quo is not safe. The baggage we carry from our past is not safe. None of our possessions are safe. Our emotional crutches are not safe. Our comfort is not safe. He will keep giving these a tug now and then to see if we’re willing to replace safe and familiar  with the kind of adventurous life that requires shields and power.

Lord, keep tugging, even when I’m not ready to let go.
