So what criteria would you use for the “safest place on earth”? Are there certain things that make you feel less safe?
- How about earthquakes?
- What about terrorism?
- Plagues and Diseases?
- Economic collapse?
- Political corruption?
A quick search on Google leaves no shortage of “safest place” lists. Each with their own set of criteria. Everything from lowest crime rates to lowest number of natural disasters.
The truth is, it’s nearly impossible to define. Probably because it’s a moving target. The day in which we live things are changing – fast! What once was considered a safe place can become a catastrophe overnight. Riots break out over the smallest incidents. A new found disease can change a country in a matter of weeks. One earthquake can cripple an entire nation.
So where if the safest place on earth? If you knew where it was, would you be willing to move there? I am pleased to report to you today that I have located it! It’s a very unique place where all basic needs are met. A place where peace exceeds all understanding. A place with fullness of joy and pleasures forever.
Sign me up, right?
As wonderful as this sounds, it’s not a place free from problems. It has all the usual difficulties of life. It retains the possibility of disaster and danger. It can even be a place of sickness and distress. You might be asking if I’ve lost my mind about now. Stay with me for a moment.
The safest place on earth isn’t geographical. It isn’t a building or a bunker. It’s not a particular governmental structure. Want to know where it is?
In the Will of God!
That sounds like a place I want to live!
I’ve had the privilege of traveling to different parts of the world. Some safe and some not so safe. The common factor in all of them was the fact that I was in the will of God. I’m as safe abroad as in my own home if I’m in His will!
Are you living in the safest place in the world? Are you serving Jesus and walking in His Word. He has promised to care for those that profess His name.
If not, you can “move” today! Let Jesus be Lord of your life. Enter into His secret place – the place where you can abide under His shadow.
