Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. —Hebrews 12:28If there is anything I have learned in this life, it is that nothing is secure. Things shake and wobble and fall down and break.
Nothing is secure.
Sitting here, I can think of many of the ways that my world has been shaken over the years. My family's car accident back in 1977. Gram's heart attack. Work issues. Dad's stroke. Death. Mom's cancer. Most recently, my nephew Jayden's cancer.
So many things that could leave one feeling turned inside out and upside down.
Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken...
As crazy as life can get, how grateful my heart is that none of the things that take my breath away, take God by surprise. None of these things that so shake my world, cause even a tremor is His. He, like His kingdom, is unshakeable.
And for this, today I worship my God...
