What Shakes Me Doesn't Shake God

By Andrea Merrell

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.
Hebrews 12:27 NKJV

It was one of those statements that makes you sit up and take notice. Maybe it wasn’t as profound to others as it was to me, but when the preacher said “just because something shakes you, doesn’t mean it shakes God,” it definitely got my attention.

My mind instantly began going over scenarios that had shaken me over the years: betrayal, illness, financial problems, prodigals, death …

This list could go on, but each situation brought a unique set of fear, anxiety, and worry. Too many times I’ve felt hopeless, wringing my hands and trying to figure out how to fix the problem instead of running to the ultimate problem solver.

I’ve learned over the years that nothing catches God off guard or by surprise. He knows the end from the beginning and everything in between. He also has an answer for every question and a solution to every problem. All we have to do is ask, then put our faith and hope in Him and Him alone.

If you feel your world shaking, know that God is right there. Trust Him. He is ready to come to your rescue.
