My life is shake proof after I let go of the shakable. I find out what is shakable when circumstances threaten and I seek God for His peace.
“My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken.” (Ps 62:1-2 NIV)
I hold many things for security, and am unaware that I am doing so, yet It is only when the Lord alone is my rock, that I shall never be shaken. However, if I am unaware of what I put my security in, how am I supposed to look to God alone as my rock and salvation?
The answer lies in verse 1. Troubles and difficulties come my way. These troubles generate anxiety since they threaten both what is precious, and the things I look to for security. This anxiety becomes my friend for it exposes what is ultimately shakeable. My soul finds rest when I surrender what has been exposed by God, seeing it as a false source of salvation. I surrender by giving thanks, and giving Him permission to take it.
When I surrender what God had given, recognising that it is his to give or take away, then the Lord is able to use it for His glory. He may take it away as a drink offering poured out for no apparent purpose. He may return it so that others may be blessed through it now that it is His.
