In today’s time what is trustworthy, dependable, sure and stable?
What is solid, unshaken, and honest for that matter reliable?
You can turn to seek it from the north, south, east and west
But here’s a guarantee it’ll only be a tiresome quest
Clearly everything that once appeared to the naked eye to stand
Has revealed, if our hope was put in man it will sink like quick sand
I mean, really let’s be real with ourselves and take a look around
What once seemed to be all glitzy and glamorous
Is now being stripped down
Remember when Y2K arose and this whole world froze
Yes, when our computers were threatened and everybody went wack-o
Honestly yaw, folks are losing their prize possessions
At a quick and alarming rate
Layoffs of thousands and thousands of jobs from state to state
There is no such thing as job security
Please, please, please, hear me
I’ve even heard of folks with degrees
Talk how they might have to live on the streets,
So again, there is no guarantee
Even to those who once looked to past presidents for truth,
many got lies can you relate
Notice how, to this day, without saying any names how certain presidents being elected is still a huge debate
Even unfortunately for the parents who once thought their children were safe
As long as they were at school
Realized quickly after the Columbine killings
They too had been fooled
I think it’s more obvious now then ever that if we continue put our trust in anything or one other than our Heavenly Father then eventually we will undeniably be let down, and I believe that the shaking that’s currently happening here is just a way of God saying, “Hey I am here, I do exist, turn to me in the midst of all of this confusion and mess because it’s in me that there is peace and rest. Yes again, it’s in me that there is peace and rest, rest for your souls. However, outside of me there is just what you currently see, panic, fear, depression, and escalation of uncertainly. Therefore, you choose, however, in the meantime you will continue to see that everything that can be shaken will be shook! Yet, the question is, where will that leave you in a state of pandemonium or solid upon the rock of Jesus the Christ?”
Hebrews 12:26-27 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Being that we have seen firsthand just how quick everything can change on us in a blink of an eye how about we all surrender and put our trust solely in the one who was, the one who is, and the one who is to come. The one who knows our beginning to the end, the one in whom by accepting we can have eternal life as our security. Who is the one I speak of? Jesus, Jesus is His name Acts 4:12 tells us: for there is no other name given to men under heaven by which we must be saved.
