“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” Psalms 4:8
The moon shines through the clouds and God’s promises shine into our lives.
When you feel safe, it comes from knowing that you are protected, that someone is taking care of you. Your parents take care of you. They give you a place to live, food to eat, get you where you need to go, give you advice and, of course, love you.
But the verse above tells us that the Lord also takes care of us. The Lord told us that we would have worries and troubles in this world, but He also gave us lots of promises in the Bible of how He would take care of us, protect us, and keep us safe.
