More Than Bread Devotional 3/13/08

Hebrews 12:26-29
26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, "Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens." 27 The words "once more" indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our "God is a consuming fire."

Do you ever have those days when everything seems a little shakey? Consider these words from Hebrews. As created things we can sometimes find ourselves shaking and quaking and not firmly planted. But if we place ourselves in God's hands, He will keep us firm in those times. Look at Psalm 94:18 - 18 When I said, "My foot is slipping," your love, O LORD, supported me.
And also at Psalm 94:22 - 22 But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
God is rock steady and our refuge in those times when we are not. Run to him when you feel the shakes and the quakes in life.
