The path of security begins with the Holy Spirit being poured out.
He is the Spirit of restoration and he will bring us into a place of fruitfulness. The fruit of the Spirit is the cultivation of righteousness in our lives which in turn fills us with peace. The effects of righteousness are quietness and assurance. This quiet assurance will give you confidence to face the world every day of your life. It rests on the certain knowledge that God is keeping you and his hand of protection rests upon you at all times. It is as if you have made your home in the most peaceful danger free zone on the planet.
Every good thing that is flowing from your life is the fruit or the product of the Holy Spirit’s work in you. This means all you have to do is to yield to his control and he will work in you his righteousness, his peace, his quietness and his assurance. This is the foundation of a life of security.
Dear Lord, I open up to the moving of the Holy Spirit in my life. Let him come and work in me today so that I may grow in righteousness, peace and assurance. Thank you that my security is in you.

Trust the Holy Spirit’s leadings and you will enjoy the fruit of his work – righteousness, peace and security.
