Cannot Be SHAKEN
Are you struggling? Has your world been shaken? Your family, your health, your finances, your friends, your career, your children? Do you feel you’re in the midst of a storm or a period of shaking? Don’t fear or become afraid – it’s just God working!
We don’t like the periods in our life when God shakes everything, turns our lives up side down, rattles our comforts, and challenges our resolve to hold steadfast to Him and His word.”
This Season of Shaking
God never promised us that we would not endure trials or struggles or times of shaking, but what He did promise is that He will never leave us or abandon us during those periods of trial and tribulation. This world system we live in is being shaken. The shaking you feel is simply God separating everything that is of no value, everything that is not eternal, everything that is not like Him, from His eternal and lasting kingdom. Those things that survive the shaking are the things that are real, lasting, and eternal. Those things that do not survive the shaking have either out lived their season and purpose in our lives, or we’ve come too dependent upon them for comfort. Either way they will not survive the shaking and will be removed. Hebrews 12:28-29 “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.”
Things may be shaky in your life right now but just know that God is moving, God is talking, and God is IN CONTROL! If He takes you through it then He will see you through it. Keep the faith, hold fast to His word, and depend on the only stability you have – God and His kingdom. In the meantime, whatever falls away, goes away, or walks away fear not! Your anchor and hope is in God and Him alone. The kingdom He has for us is a stable kingdom that cannot be shaken.
When things start coming apart in your life, your finances, your health, your job, your security, you friends, hold fast to what will not change, what cannot be shaken, what will never fail – and that’s God.
