No Shaking!

I once heard someone say to his friend when the fellow was asking for something that had been promised; “No shaking!”. From my part of the world, this a popular slang in Pidgin English that people use to create a sense of reassurance in the minds of others.

[1] God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
[2] Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
[3] though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah

Psalm 46:1-3 (NIV)

The fathers and mothers of faith were men and women who gave God a hundred percent trust, time and commitment. All they lived for, their expectations and innate desires were gotten by trusting completely.

As strong as Rocks, Hills, Mountains are (and they are known to be dependable), in as much as they last for centuries, they can still be brought down by other mechanical or environmental factors. Only God can be totally relied upon.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong.

Proverbs 18:10 (NIV)

In this age and time, who would go looking for one lost sheep at the expense of loosing the other nine? I mean, what human strategy would promote this? Still, this is the extent to which God (your Father) is willing to go just for you.

Why shouldn’t you rest on Him? Even in the time of drought, in the midst of trouble and crisis, stand firm on Christ, the solid rock.

You are a hiding place for me; You, Lord, preserve me from trouble, You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Psalm 32:7 (AMP)
