Being Steady in Shakening

by Pastor Bong Gonzales

Hebrews 12:25-27
25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, "Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens." 27 The words "once more" indicate the removing of what can be shaken — that is, created things — so that what cannot be shaken may remain. NIV

As stated by the word of God, that everything that was created will be shaken. So, all of us and all in us will be shaken! It is expected that our lives will be stormed with so much for the purpose of keeping what is unshakable.

Shaking comes through various Testings and trials!

The only thing that is unshakable in us are the things that are not created! So we must identify whats unshakable in us and what shakable! Well, let me share to you what we have that's unshakable!

1. Faith is unshakable, though it is the target of all trials and testings (1 Peter 1:7). It cannot be shaken because it is given to us by God as stated in (Romans 12:3). Though we have the duty to make it strong and keep it growing through the meditation of the word of God. (Joshua 1:8-9, Matthew 4:4, Romans 10:17).

2. Our personal relationship with Jesus cannot be shaken, because He is the one holding us, not us holding Him. He chose us, it is not us who chose Him. (John 15:16). Therefore, no matter what the testing will bring He can bring us through for He will never leave us nor forsake us! (Hebrews 13:8). But again ,we need to remain in Him, allowing Him to bring us wherever and whatever He wills and in His ways.

3. Our opportunity from Him, which is a 24/7 communication line without any off line. A privelege to talk to Him and ask for His help in times of need is unshakable, because He is the one who offered it to us (Jeremiah 33:3).

Let us always come to Him to discuss and express what troubles us, for it is His pleasure to bless us.

No trouble, no trial, no testing in this life is able to bring us down, for there in a God-given unshakableness in us!

In Him we live and move and have our being!

God bless and till next time!
