Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. Psalm 125:1
People go through life trusting in various things to help them along the way. They will trust that their paycheck will continue, that their retirement will be enough, that the economy will be good, and the list goes on.
That trust in those things often gets severely tested from time to time. As a person is trusting his job, suddenly there is a time where they are laying off people, making cuts. The person is often shaken to his core, wondering if he will have a job in a few weeks, or how he will provide for his family if he is laid off.
When things start to take a turn for the worse, people become scared and worried. They are shaken with the fear that is in them of the unknown future. All peace has left them.
Nations and economies have risen and fallen over and over throughout all of history. No nation has lasted forever. Every thing in those nations have risen and fallen. Jobs that were in place one hundred years ago are now gone. Equipment that was used fifty years ago is now gone. The economy of thirty years ago is gone. Nothing on this earth last forever. With everything going away the fear can rise in a person.
Trusting in God removes that fear. God is a foundation that has been in place since the beginning of time. Throughout history, God has never changed. He remains the same since the time of Adam, and will remain the same for the rest of eternity.
God can be your unshakeable peace when all of your world seems to be falling apart. When things fail in this world, God is still right by your side holding you up.
As you trust in Jesus for everything, you will have His perfect peace in you. You will know that no matter how bad things get, He is still in control. You will not be shaken as many in this world are shaken with fear. You know your future will be an eternal life in heaven with God.
Where is your trust today?
Are you being shaken?
I pray today that you will trust in God with our life; that you will know His peace in your life; that you will not be shaken as the world is shaken; and that God’s love will remove all fear in your life.
