In that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more lean on him who struck them, but will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. – Isaiah 10:20
The Lord has a way of removing the supporting structures of my life. Some of those include income, insurance, talents, education, skills, interests… Though I see nothing wrong with these, they can become my securities. Why would I allow the temporal and powerless to support me? Why would I allow them to be my idols, for that is what they are if I allow them to take the place of the Lord.
If I do not listen earnestly to Jesus and consider him daily and fix my eyes on him hourly, then I will begin to drift toward these supports and away from my true security.
Lord, I desire that you alone be the security of my life. Help me lean on you today.
