Deeper Day 348: Unshakeable

Lately I have thought a lot about the word, “Unshakeable”.

Unshakeable: strongly felt and unable to be changed.

Now more than ever, in every single part of my life, I’m experiencing the need to remain unshakeable. When I am discovering certain relationships in my life are not trustworthy, I am constantly returning to the unshakeable place of family. Family first.

In ministry as I navigate the ups and downs and relationships that surround it, I continue to cling to my unshakeable identity in Christ. God defines me.

In the world, as everything is up in the air and our future feel uncertain, I return to the unshakeable promises of God. God keeps His word.

I’m in a season of strengthening, which means that I am often face to face with my many weaknesses. I am learning every day to not be ashamed of weakness within myself, rather I am to press into those places and find God’s strength. Walking through a season of strengthening also means being ok with allowing others to see me as weak. I mean, really, does it matter what others think anyway?

What’s happening is God is guiding me into situations where I am needing to face conflict (which I prefer to avoid). He’s teaching me though, and we all know that when we are being taught, we will likely make many mistakes. It’s normal to fumble around when you are feeling awkward and new to doing something. But even though I’m like a toddler in some of these areas, I am still unshakeable. I still put myself in hard places. I refuse to hide from things that make me fearful.

This alone shows a great amount of strength. I must remind myself of that on a daily basis.

Never think that simply because something is hard, it means that you are better off just giving up because you’re too weak.  On the contrary, I now head straight into situations to discover strength that God has hidden deep within me. I am eager to learn. I am eager to grow. Are you?

Are you willing to face difficulty so you can become more complete in Him? Are you willing to look foolish to others, if it draws you closer to Him and makes you more unshakeable?

Prayer Moment: God, please continue to grow me. Never let me become complacent and lazy. Never let my fear of others dictate the way I walk with You. Lead me into a deeper walk with You. Every day draw me closer. Fill my heart with a deep passion and excitement for You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

For the Lord Your God is the One Who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory. Deuteronomy 20:4

The Lord is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him. Exodus 15:2
