Why Finding Security In God’s Love Improves Relationships

security in GodFinding security in God’s love, rather than in our present circumstances or performance, which change on a whim or can be based on opinion, should be second nature for Jesus Followers. We have this well-founded security in God because of the ultimate demonstration of Love at the cross. 

We’ll review why it’s possible to maintain your confidence in God, how that benefits your relationships, then meditate together with a Holistic Faith Lifestyle guided Christian meditation YouTube video linked at the bottom of this post.

Why YOU can find Security in God

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8

The immeasurable, unending love of God gives you the ability to maintain your confidence in God, even when you lack confidence in yourself. God saw that having a relationship with you was worth great sacrifice. Though great mystery remains in our understanding of God, we can be confident in this; we are dearly loved. 

Jesus’s gift at the cross is a grounding truth that lets us first feel secure in life and access bold peace, then radiate those things outward into our relationships.  


Guided Christian Meditation: Finding Security in God’s Love

There is nothing like sitting still in God’s peaceful presence to bring solace to an anxious and fretful heart! Over the last 10 years, Christian Meditation has become a spiritual discipline I depend on for making space with God. So I invite you to explore the ancient practice of Christian meditation with me.

So many times our own emotional hangups get in the way of our earthly relationships and our relationship with God. Taking a little time to clear the mind of busy thoughts and make space to connect with God goes a long way towards inner healing and improving all our relationships! The sign of a good practice is not what happens during the practice, because we all get fidgety or have times where our to-do list just won’t quit. The sign of a good practice is actually what begins to transform afterward! Consistency is key and this How to Do Christian Meditation series is a great way to start on that path!

This meditation helps us remember and take security in God’s ultimate demonstration of Love at the cross. As we do so and become more intimate in our walk with God, we grow more confident and can detach from specific outcomes, waiting in expectation of God’s plan, and radiating peace into our relationships.

This gift is no small thing, so I hope you’ll click through and enjoy this practice with me. You’ll walk away feeling more secure in God’s love for your physical form and spiritual form.

Why Finding Security In God’s Love Improves Relationships

Security in God Shapes Our Identity

To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. ~ Revelation 5b-6

First, we were loved. Then we were washed clean and saved from the spiritual consequences of our sins (anything we have chosen that puts distance between us and God). Though we are always and presently loved, this verse points back to the cross, where The One who loved us performed a great sacrifice on our behalf.

Then, God goes beyond washing and redeeming by making us wholly holy. We become royalty with spiritual status, wealth, and authority. We also become priests and priestesses which means we are servants to God who represent humanity to God and reflect God to humanity. In the Old Testament, the roles of Royalty and Priesthood did not rest upon the same person. But in the New Testament, under the new covenant, we see Jesus is indicated as both. And here in Revelation, we are invited to step confidently into both roles.

Knowing our identity in Christ takes the pressure off our relationships to be perfect and provide for all of our needs. Knowing we were loved both before we were born physically or reborn spiritually, prevents us from placing burdensome expectations on others.

Security in God LEts Us Love Freely

We love because he first loved us.  ~ 1 John 4:19

We should love others because we are loved beyond measure, without merit. There are no other details or improvements needed in our mind, body, or spirit in order to receive God’s love. Finding our security in God, rather than in other people’s performances, treatment of us, or their views of God, lets us love freely without concern. Sometimes from a distance for protective reasons, sometimes boldly. No matter how we do it, we love generously because we rest in receiving unmerited favor from a holy God.

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. ~ 1 Peter 4:8

Security in God Provides Peace

Finding ourselves made whole in Christ lets us retreat inward to a place of solace, to pause before reacting, and to speak and behave with intention.  This means we can choose our words carefully, without selfish intent, and better protect our relationships. 

Security in God Glorifies God

Taking a firm hold on this security, planting ourselves on the rock, or tucking ourselves into the cleft when we’re vulnerable lets us radiate security and peace to others. This is no small thing. This is a great witness to the power of God’s love which is lavished upon us. 

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. ~ John 13:35


Bible Verses on Security and Protection

Need more encouragement to find your security and protection in God rather than things that are subject to change? Use these verses to ground you in God’s truth and protection. When I’m working on new intentions, I like to schedule verses to come up on my phone as reminders that help change my perspective and alter my heart posture. Often, upon reading them, I call them back to God in prayer or speak them over myself as an affirmation of faith and truth.

I’d love to hear how you use verses to reinforce God’s truth in your life! However you use them, I hope these verses minister to you. Be blessed!

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit. 
~ Jeremiah 17:7-8


For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
~ Psalm 27:5


I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.  ~Psalm 27:13-14

Psalm 27 Devotional: A Prayer for Rescue

from Holistic Faith Lifestyle

The fruit of that righteousness will be peace;
its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.
~ Isaiah 32:17


Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
~ Isaiah 40:28-31


So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
~ Isaiah 41:10


being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 1:6


I can do all this through him who gives me strength. ~ Philippians 4:13


Praying Over Your Identity In Christ

from Hope & Joy In Christ


Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. ~ Hebrews 4:16


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. ~ Ephesians 6:10-11


Wondering how to get started with meditation while also safeguarding your spirit? I get it! Meditation is a natural, instinctive way to connect with God. And while you can listen to non-Christian meditations and change the mantras and interpret them through a Child of God lens, it can get distracting. That’s exactly why I began writing my own Christian meditations and now share them with you!

Sitting still in God’s presence instills a sense of security that you begin carrying with you into the rest of your life. I created this series just to get you started with your own daily discipline. I hope you enjoy it and begin to adopt a deeper sense of your identity in Christ.

  9. I love you point, “security in God lets us love freely.” I can think of so many times I haven’t stepped out to love like God asks me to because I was afraid of what people might think. Being secure in Him helps me fight that “hesitation reflex.”
