The Center of His Will is our Safety

July 23, 2013

I was familiar with the writing of World War II holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom who had written, “The center of His will is our only safety.” Like many Christians, I had falsely translated this to mean that so long as we are doing God’s will, we would all be safe. I did not know or understand at the time that these words were spoken from inside the horror of a Nazi concentration camp. I did not know that what she meant by these words was that no matter how evil our opposition, how horrific our suffering and how violent our death, that ultimately we remain untouchable in the hands of him who holds the keys to life. –Daniel Walker, God in a Brothel, 153
