Scriptures on “safety”

This weekly sub-series can assist your physical and relational exercise of 24 dynamics of spiritual fitness in Scripture that parallel physical and relational fitness:  balance, flexibility, initiative, partners, weight, etc.  You can print some or all of the Scriptures and read them to each other as you walk, tape them to a wall to guide discussion and prayer as you lift weights, etc.  Each of the dynamics has corresponding devotional articles, music videos, suggested applications, and more.  Use whatever is most helpful to strengthen your love for God and your neighbors through Christ.  If you’re interested in learning more about this holistic approach to fitness, you can read my free book W.A.I.T. Training.

Proverbs 4:23, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

Proverbs 11:14, “For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers.”

Proverbs 18:10, “The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

Proverbs 25:28, “Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.”

Jeremiah 12:5, ““If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses?  If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?”

Matthew 12:25-29, “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.  But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.  “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man?  Then he can plunder his house.”

Luke 11:21-22, ““When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe.  But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up his plunder.”

1 Corinthians 6:12-13, “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.”  The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
