What makes you feel secure? For Peter, security is found in our new birth in Christ, in a living hope, in Jesus' resurrection from the dead, and in our inheritance stored in heaven as we are shielded by God's power.
In our passage, the Apostle Paul gives a prayer for how our lives ought to be when Jesus matters most. Consider the incredible difference Jesus makes in one’s life!
Anchoring your life in the resurrected Christ opens the door to becoming the best version of you.

Throughout the history of God's people there are a number of very close calls--situations in which events take just a slight turn and that turn reveals how close the events came to having an outcome other than the one they had. Scripture reveals that we can get very close to being in God's kingdom and yet still miss it. None of this contradicts God's sovereignty. It reveals how very careful we ought to be with our lives. Esau’s conversation with his father Isaac helps us see that we need to be careful about our purposes and plans, careful to look at ourselves, and careful about our Lord’s purpose and plans.
When Zelophehad died, there were no sons to pass along the family’s inheritance. His four daughters were bold enough to go to Moses and ask for their father’s inheritance, even though this had never been done before in the history of Israel. These bold women still teach us today to ‘boldly come before the throne of grace’ and ask for what has been given to us through the inheritance paid for by Jesus.
