"Where does your security lie?
Is God your refuge, your hiding place,
your stronghold, your shepherd,
your counsellor, your friend,
your redeemer, your saviour, your guide?
If He is, you don't need to search any further for security."- Elisabeth Elliot
In an age where security is the new buzz word, we are constantly looking for new ways to keep ourselves physically secure. However, we realise that there is still a limit to how much we can protect ourselves. In a spiritual sense, we are also looking for answers as to how we can be at peace and know our faith is secure. Elisabeth Elliot had to face the tragedy of losing her missionary husband when Jim was murdered on the mission field. In the end, she eventually came to a place of peace, knowing that God would be her rock and fortress.
This is a very challenging lesson to learn and it makes it all the more real when someone has face a crisis in their lives and overcome that crisis by trusting in God.

Ø Isaiah 54:5 - For your Maker is your husband— the Lord Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth.
