Focusing on the right things each day will enable you not to be shaken. There are plenty of things going on in this world that, if we allow the thoughts and images into our minds, they will shake us—unnerve us, worry us, and bring us into fear. That isn’t how we’re to operate.
From the Psalmist lived experience, he says, “I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because You will not abandon me…”(Psalm 16:8-10, NIV).
David knew if he continued focusing on the Lord, he would be okay. No matter what was going on around him, he would not allow those things to shake him. He was confident in God, and knew his position of trust and rest in God was the key in not allowing the things of his world to shake his faith.
Are you in the same place as David—focused and trusting the Lord, resting in His faithfulness and goodness?
