Seek First Project: What Happens When You’re Shaken (Day 30)

For I will give the command and will shake Israel along with the other nations as grain is shaken in a sieve, yet not one true kernel will be lost. – Amos 9:9

I read the verses in scripture about God not allowing the righteous to be shaken. About how we are not shaken, because He is our fortress.

But can be honest here? Some days shake me.

They shake me to the core. Even my faith gets little cracks that threaten to race ahead and grow ever larger.

The list is pretty endless of the earth-shaking, faith-shaking, just-plain-shaking things that can enter our lives each day.

That’s why the verse above gives me so much peace.

This world can shake us. Shake us to our very core. Shake even our faith.

…yet not one true kernel will be lost.

We’re in good hands, Dear One. Fear not, we will not be lost.

For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day. – 2 Timothy 1:12


Unshakeable God, thank You for keeping Your promises to hold us sure and steady, even when it feels like we are shaken to the core. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
