In Heb 12:26-29, we are told that God is going to shake the earth (and the heavens) one more time. In these same verses God tells us the reason for the shaking; to remove everything that doesn’t have the right foundations, so that only things that are unshakable can remain.
When we look around us, we can see a shaking taking place that is unprecedented. The whole world is being shaken; the Church of Jesus Christ is being shaken; and the life of every Christian is being shaken. Why is God allowing this shaking? So that only things that are unshakable can remain.
We’re living in a day, where the foundations of our lives, and what we have built our lives upon, are going to be exposed. If, as a believer, we’re just going through the motions, then the shaking will reveal that. If we’re going hard after God, living for the Lord with passion and purpose, then the shaking will also reveal that.
Here is the key…don’t fear the shaking. Allow God to expose the foundation of your life. And as He does, remove the rubbish and the sand of your old foundation, and build a new foundation in such a way, that as you continue to be shaken, your foundation in Christ will be so solid, that you can’t be moved.
I love the old hymn that says, “Glory Hallelujah, I shall not be moved…anchored in Jehovah, I shall not be moved…Just like the tree, that’s planted by the water, I shall not be moved.”
