Comforter Security

by | Feb 27, 2018 | Greenelines

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They are brought down and fallen, but we arise and stand upright” (Ps. 20:7.8).

When I read these verses, I remember singing them as a chorus in the 1970s. The message is powerful.

While this psalm, as a whole, refers to a military event, we can easily apply it to any personal struggle. In a time of battle, our reach reveals much about our heart and belief system.

I remember my daughter’s death grip on her “blankie” during any time of insecurity. She could barely part with it long enough for the blanket to tumble through the washer and dryer. It didn’t seem to matter that Mommy and Daddy spoke words of security over her. Without her blankie, she lost her hearing. But somehow, with the blankie in tow, she felt more secure.

Love leaders learn to provide blankie services. Leaders walk in security even when bombs are bursting in air. When a shell explodes in the office, every eye turns to the leader to gauge the damage to their personal security. Love leaders provide shelter.

For the first 50 years of the 1900s, workers endured job threats throughout their workday. Scientific managers saw humans as unevolved robots. “Work faster or we will find someone who can.”

We must lead with the opposite mentality. Turnover is costly. People will work faster and better when loved.

Jesus warned His team of pending doom. He was clear about the end game they would endure because they followed Him. He didn’t promise anyone on His team a rose garden. He loved as He led with truth.

He taught them not to trust in chariots or weapons. He sent a Comforter and promised eternal security.

The security of the believer is found at the cross.

“Now know I that the Lord saveth His anointed” (Ps. 20:6, KJV).
