Thoughts in the Rain

0W2A6070-9

It’s pouring buckets here, and as I listen to the rain I’ve been mulling over this quote from Elisabeth Elliot:

“What is there to fear when Christ holds first place in our lives?  Where, other than in the will of the Father, shall we expect to find significance, security, and serenity?”

He gives us significance, security, and serenity.  When our hope is found in Christ and His power to save our souls, what do we have to worry about?  He is the only one able to save us from our brokenness, the only one who can make us whole and satisfy us.  If we can trust Him to our salvation, what else is there to fear?

I’m so thankful God is God; I’m so thankful He is the ultimate power and authority and not any human being.  What a mighty, wonderful God He is.
