Webster defines "security" in part as, "Freedom from fear, anxiety or care; ... safety," and gives as synonyms, "Protection, defense, guard, shelter."

The beloved Master, Christ Jesus, when addressing his disciples on the subject of worldly carefulness, admonished them that they seek first "the kingdom of God," and assured them that all needful things would be added.

If living in disobedience to Him, we ought to feel no security, although God is good."
