Some people will tell you the safest place you can be is in the will of God, while others will tell you that the will of God is dangerous, but worth staying in.
What many people seem to miss is that these two views do not contradict each other, but complement one another
While it’s true that God’s will can put you in dangerous situations, at the same time, it isthe safest place you can be. To further illustrate this point, let’s look at 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NIV:
“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
These pair of verses present a perfect balance of the two ideas: safety and danger. Verse 9 says we are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair. The Christian life is summed up perfectly in those few words. We will face battles we don’t know how to win, experience pressure we don’t think we can handle, and be threatened and persecuted for doing what is right.
