My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Proverbs. 10:30, “The Righteous Will Never Be Shaken.’’
As you have grown weary and faint in many things, Satan has shaken you and has caused you to fall. Therefore, you have incurred a great loss in your life. But the Lord is telling you that you should not be shaken. The children of God should stand strong, like an anchor that cannot be easily shaken. The Psalmist says, “As I have kept the Lord always before me, I shall not be shaken”. Those who trust in the Lord shall not be shaken. My dear children of God, as satan has shaken your family, you might have got separated, and your family has been shattered. Maybe the enemy could have brought certain losses in your business centre because of some bad elements, risen against you and therefore, your family has lost peace and finally shattered. But the Lord says, never give up on God. Hold on to Him and do not be shaken even if you go through loss in your business or at your work spot or due to financial crisis, then the Lord will rebuild you and establish you and your family.
Be bold and courageous in the Lord, for God is with you. Be strong in your spiritual life and you should not fall into sin. We see Joseph in the Bible as a strong man who feared the Lord and ran away from sin. He had every opportunity to sin and he could have enjoyed the wealth of Potiphar, but he restrained himself from falling into sin. As a result, God exalted him to the post of the Governor of Egypt. His father and brothers came to him for bread. We should be careful in our lives, just when we are about to rise up in life, we may tend to slip and fall, because satan is prowling about as a roaring lion as to whom he might devour. He will always entice us cunningly and make us fall down and that is his work. If you don’t want satan to trap you then you got to be firm in the word of God. That is why David says, “Thy word have I hidden in my heart, That I should not sin”. If you do not have the word of God in you, then you will tend to fall. Therefore, I urge every one of you with much love and concern that you should stand firm in the word of God.
Only then, when you are tempted by satan you will be able to overcome all the obstacles which he is thrusting upon you, by being reminded by the word of God and checking for yourselves if you are walking on the right track and be victorious in your life. The Lord is looking at you today and saying that you should not fall down in front of your enemies, who actually expected your downfall. You should not give room for it in any way. Children of God should always be strong not only in the word of God but also strong in their mind as the world and the things of this world is so enticing. You should not give room for vain thoughts. Satan is tricky and will easily make you fall by giving you something sweet in the beginning, and later make you fall bringing shame and humiliation before others. Hence hereafter you should not give room for Satan’s advice. Instead, be strong in the word of God, meditate upon the word of God day and night, then you shall not be shaken. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, look upon all the children who have been shaken by Satan and fallen down. Lord, you rebuilt the tent of David, likewise, I pray that you rebuild the families that have been shattered and separated for various reasons. Help them live in unity and harmony. Rebuild their broken tents. May all those who are reading to your word this morning be rejuvenated by the power of the Holy Spirit and be strengthened by the word of God. In order that they may overcome the Cunning plan of Satan. Lord I pray that You remain close to them, guard them, protect them and help them to live a victorious life.
