#34 Why God’s Will Isn’t the Safest Place to Be!

Is God’s will really the safest place you can be? If it’s not a safe place then how can you keep from worrying about your own safety?

In this episode of “Now Is the Time” I share with you a personal example from my life when I was very worried for my safety and I talk about what you can do to overcome worry and anxiety about your health and safety.

I recorded this podcast a couple of days earlier because right now I am with a group of our students on a short missions trip in central Ukraine. We appreciate your prayers for us!

How to Kill Worry About Your Health and Safety

I am a pastor, missionary, and preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Ukraine since 2007. God blessed me with a wonderful wife and 5 amazing children!

My greatest passion is to teach, encourage, and exhort others to turn to Jesus, who is Savior, Lord, and God!

    Good stuff, Caleb. Praying for you and the mission. Next time your father in law offers to buy you a ride in a skimpy aircraft, I’d seriously reconsider!

    • It was a fun ride, but it was sure scary, I’ll at least fasten my seatbelt next time!

      • DS

        At least it had seat belts! Half the cabs and other cars I came into contact with in Ukraine didn’t have functioning rear seat belts 😉

  • DS

    It reminds me of the earlier church’s “diaspora”. Because of their persecution God’s kingdom grew and expanded to places that were untouched. One verse that helps encourage me is 1st Corinthians 10:13.

  • Great stuff Caleb. And I really like the graphic. Very engaging. 🙂

    • Thanks Bryan! I took that picture on the Californian coast earlier this year. We went on an awesome hike through the Redwoods that came out on that beach.

  • Awesome Caleb! I totally agree (and actually wrote a post about the same thing). God’s will isn’t the safest place to be – but it’s the best place.

    • That’s a good way to put it Dave.

  • Rebekah

    When I think of “safe” with regards to the Lord, I just think of being in His will – right where He wants me. “Whether we live or die it is to the LORD”.

    • That’s a good way to think about it.
