Safety In Numbers
Don’t count the number of people on the contact list. Don’t count blog readership. Don’t count the number of clients in the wings. Don’t count the number of people in the group. Don’t count the money. Don’t count the days left of misery or goodness. Don’t count the number of times of being right, or the times of having been wronged; or the list of attributes or failures.
Don’t count these things as if to establish the flesh, or console the mind.
We were never in danger when numbers were low, and were never secure just because they were high.
Instead, count on the provisions of God. Depend on His comfort, His grace, His love and His power. Bet on God’s plan to manifest His goodness throughout creation. Be certain that His corporate purpose is also uniquely perfect for each one of us.
The safety we look for in finite numbers will be granted eternally if sought for in God.
