We Will Not Be Shaken

November 5, 2015

I have set the Lord always before me. Because he

Is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

Psalm 16:8

 

David wrote this. We don’t know when, but we do know that David went through some pretty trying times. He was on the run from Saul for a long time…I read it was probably around eight years. It could have been during this time. Or maybe it was when his men were plotting to kill him because they blamed him for their wives and children being taken captive. David’s two wives had also been captured. 1 Samuel 30:6 tells us that David was greatly distressed because the men were talking about stoning him, but he didn’t give in to it. Instead he found strength in the Lord. When we find strength in the Lord, we will not be shaken. When we keep the Lord always before us, we will not be shaken.

 

Of course, this can apply to every part of our lives. This includes the times when we feel overwhelmed by our prodigal’s circumstances or we don’t see how it will ever change. Or the times when we just want to fix it and we are helpless. Or what about when they hurt us by the things they say or do? Sometimes we just have to trust that God knows what He’s doing. We have to keep Him before us and not let the doubts or fears or worries take root or even have a place. And when we do give in to “stinkin thinkin” and then become aware of it, we have to stop and get back on track. Of course we will fail at times, but God says He understands our weaknesses. His mercies are new every morning; great is His faithfulness (Lamentations 3:23-23).

 

God knows our every longing; He hears each prayer we say. Nothing can separate us from His love. These are truths that we can remind ourselves of and strengthen ourselves in the Lord. More than anything, God desires a relationship with us. Focus on that…keeping Him ever before you. Then you will find the strength to face each day and each struggle and each worry  without giving in it. God will be right there with you. As you take Him with you throughout your day, you will not be shaken. As you lift up our King’s kids, faith will rise up in you.

 

I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore I will hope in him!” The

Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.

So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.

Lamentations 3:24-25

 

We Won't Be Shaken by Building 429

 

This world has nothing for me
This life is not my own
I know you go before me
And I am not alone
This mountain rises higher
This way seems so unclear
But I know that you go with me
I will trust in you

Whatever will come my way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken
Oooh Oh Oh
Oooh Oh Oh
Oooh Oh Oh
No we won't be shaken

You know my every longing
You've heard my every prayer
You've held me in my weakness
Cause you are always there
So I'll stand in full surrender
It's your way and not my own
My mind is set on nothing less
Than you and you alone
I will not be moved oh

Whatever will come my way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won't be shaken
No we won't be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we'll rise and sing
That we won't be shaken

We will trust in you
We will not be moved
We will trust in you
