God Has A Purpose In The Shaking
"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let
the righteous be shaken." Psalm 55:22 (NIV)
Things in life can get shaky and sometimes downright scary. We all have been through things that cause us to doubt the security of our futures, our faith, our families and our friendships.
The first thing to know and understand is that God cares. And because He cares, we can cast our cares upon Him. What are you currently trying to figure out or fix with your wisdom and strength? Stop struggling and surrender it to Jesus. The very hairs of your head are counted (Luke 12:7), so don't hesitate to bring it before God. If he cares about the number of hairs you have, He most definitely cares about every area of your life.
The second thing is that God will allow times of shaking in our lives so we can learn that He is the unshakable One. He wants us to understand that no matter what is happening in or around us, God is more than enough to take care of us and work out the trouble we are experiencing for our good and His glory.
What is currently shaking in your life? What seems like it is falling apart or slipping away? Know that God hasn't moved, and He wants you to join Him in the same immovable place He is currently standing. Go to Him and allow Him to hold you during the shaking you are experiencing. Everything may fall, and it may be hard to handle, but you will not fall, you will not be shaken. God will hold you and protect you. He desires the shaking you are currently experiencing to grow your trust in Him.
Lord Jesus, help me to trust in your care and love for me in the middle of difficult times in my life. Help me to hold on to You instead of attempting to save the things that are shaking around me. That is your job and not mine. You are Savior, and I am your son/daughter. Amen
