The Shaking is Necessary

on March 2, 2015

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 

in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

 But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold. For I have stayed on God’s paths; I have followed his ways and not turned aside. (Job 23:10-11 NLT)

 Turbulence: a state or condition of confusion, movement, or agitation; disorder.

 Are you a fan of turbulence? I’d imagine no one is a fan of being shaken while on an aircraft. The only option is to secure your seat-belt. While being on a recent flight, the pilot was trying to ascend and the ride began to get bumpy. At that moment, the attendant announced, “No moving at this time, please fasten your seat-belt!”  That announcement was made several times during the flight.  At the moment of no control, I began to get anxious, and uncomfortable.  In a recent article, I read, “Turbulence is an aggravating nuisance for everybody, including the crew, but it’s also, for lack of a better term, normal”

When there are moments in your life that may seem rough, bumpy, uncertain, or shaky…it’s God’s way to TEST you, but to TRUST Him! It’s normal.  Again, it’s His way to TEST YOU, but YOU TRUST HIM. As I began to look out of my window, I could hear others around me complaining, fearful and babies crying.  At that moment I was reminded of His word….”Trust in the Lord with ALL thine heart… and not to lean into MY own understanding.” It’s in your own understanding when there’s confusion and no clarity.  In the process of life, God will send turbulence your way to shake you to rid some things, but to also remind you of his sovereignty. It’s in the turbulence that the enemy will cause doubt and fear….but God will protect you from dangers seen and unseen. It’s a reminder that it’s bigger than you…He’s in control. If there was no shaking, you wouldn’t move. Be thankful that HE loves you so, and wants you to be BETTER.

God will take you to a place, and it’s in that moment, He will be the only one to sustain you!! Trusting isn’t always easy, but try it!! Can you trust in during the turbulence of life? Can you trust when you can’t see your way out? Can you trust when it doesn’t make sense? Is it possible that God is saying “No moving at this time?” Simply because He’s taking you to a new level? Are you in His way? Let “it” go.

If you can trust Him, I’d like to know if you’ll TRY Him?  You’ve been comfortable long enough. When you get to point where you don’t know what else to do, I’d like to suggest, lift your hands and say, “Lord, I trust you in the midst of turbulence in my life!”  When you TRUST HIM, He will prove Himself to you! Just hold on-you’re going to land safely to your victory! Fasten your seat-belt of Faith, and when you land……He will reveal…..His glory in YOU!!!!!! Hold on!!!!!! There’s purpose in you!!! He’s trying, but you must be willing. Here are few questions to ask yourself and apply to your daily life:

  1. What in my life is causing turbulence?
  2. What can I do today to change my “right now?”
  3. What steps can I take to eliminate the confusion?

Remember to TRUST: if He has done it before, he can certainly do it again. When He shakes He will shift. In the midst of the shaking be sure to fasten your seat-belt, I’d like to call that “Faith” because at that point all you can do is “Hold on!”

    I love this. Trusting God with everything, for everything is so important. It actually allows you to relax when you totally trust Him. The worry is removed when we flow with Him. Shifting is movement and necessary to get to the next level in God. We should never be complacent to stay in the same place and never grow. Thanks for sharing.
