Every two years, we pick a theme of what we feel like we need to hear. This summer, after much prayer, we landed on the word unshakable. This past year has brought loss to so many—whether of income, loved ones, community, health, normalcy ... in some ways it feels like our world has turned upside down. But praise God that His kingdom is one that cannot be shaken!
At that time His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. 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. Hebrews 12:26-28 (ESV) Even though everything around us changes, isn't it a comfort to know that God is the same yesterday, today and forever and His character will not change? We hope over these next two years we can all learn in a deeper way that no matter what tomorrow brings, we are part of an unshakable kingdom and because we have an unshakable God, we can be unshakable too!
