Our Security Blanket – A Devotional Thought

Categories: News

My youngest daughter has a blanket that she’s quite attached to. It’s pink, of course, and is kind of silky on one side and is fuzzy on the other. We acquired it here at church on a cold day when she was just a few months old. Embroidered on one of the corners in green is “Mt Gilead Nursery”. She calls this blanket, “Big Lovey”. She takes this thing everywhere. Vacations. Random trips to school. Walmart. No toy in the world could buy Big Lovey away from Hadley. Every morning when I wake her up for preschool, she instinctively reaches and plunders her bed for Big Lovey. Much like your morning cup of coffee, she can’t begin her day without it. She depends on it. It brings her peace and joy. It is her treasure.

Oh that we would have the Bible for our security blanket. The Psalmists said a man is blessed when “his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night” (Psm 1.1) and later, “Then I shall not be put to shame,
having my eyes fixed on all your commandments. I will praise you with an upright heart,
when I learn your righteous rules” (Psm 119.6,7).

Depend on God’s Word. Treasure it. It will bring you peace and joy.
