Refer: Genesis 2:6-8 and Psalm 139:12-14
Oxford dictionary defines Safety Belt as “a belt or strap securing a person to prevent injury, especially in a vehicle or aircraft.” Therefore, safety belt is meant for our own safety. It is available in baby trolley, baby chair, car, van, truck, and rides for children, helmet, and many others. The belt at the helmet is to prevent the helmet from falling out of your head.
How much more do we need to listen to God’s Word, His principles, statutes and commandments into our lives. His guidance is likened to a safety belt to prevent us from hurting ourselves spiritually and physically.
God is the creator of the universe and all that is within it including humans. He knows how we are made and formed – dust (Genesis 2:6-8) and when we are in our mothers’ womb (Psalm 139:12-14)
Why can’t we listen to God’s instructions?
We can read from Jeremiah 7:22-24 (KJV) showing God’s heart towards the Israelites to listen to His Word for their own good, “For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”
Let us return to God,
The creator of all,
An Infinite Being who
Cares and loves us
