Chasing shadows…
People search high and low to fill the void in their hearts. They search for fulfillment in the wrong places. Nations place their confidence in the world’s system. It is only when God shakes the systems they place their confidence in, that they realise that all power is not dependent on man, but God.
The world is in desperate need of God. Many do not realise they need Jesus Christ in their lives? He is the only way to the Father. There is a desperate yearning for this relationship with God in the souls of men, yet they live their lives unconvinced of this need.
Paul was a man convinced and persuaded about His need of God. He knew that nothing could separate Him from the love of God in Christ Jesus. In Romans 8:38,39, Paul gives a list of circumstances that could possibly separate, shake and spoil our relationship with God through Christ: death, life, angels, demons, the present, the future, powers, heights, depth, anything else on the face of the earth. None of these things should move the Church. Every believer should be perfectly convinced that we are safe and secure in the protective, providential arms of Jesus.
“For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My loving-kindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not be shaken,” Says the LORD who has compassion on you.” Isaiah 54:10
