God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. 4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. 5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. 6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Every good bible student can attest to the calmness that surrounds Jesus in His ministry on earth. He was never in a hurry; He was never moved by any situation. He did not need to dramatize anything. Jesus never yelled, shouted at the top of His voice, somersaulted or did some gymnastics to heal. This is different from what we see about a lot of people wanting to show that the power of God rests upon them. What was special about Jesus?
The psalmist said, “God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved”. The only thing that makes someone steadfast and immoveable is that God is in the midst of that person. That was Nichodemus’ testimony, “no man can do these things except God be with him”. There was a calmness about Jesus that no matter what He heard, even when they told Him Lazarus was dead, He was immoveable. “What manner of Man is this?”, the disciples asked.
If we are priviledged to continue His works on earth and do greater works, then we must first fulfill that pre-condition. Learn to be still and let God have His way in every situation that confronts you.
1. Thank God for His faithfulness and promise to be with you all the days of your life.
2. Ask for the work of the Holy Spirit to be complete in you so that you will walk and live like Jesus did.
3. Father, I am grateful for Your faithfulness in walking with me all the days of my life. Please help me to be available to You so that You can fully abide in me.
DeclarationsI declare that I am a temple of the Holy Spirit; therefore, God has His way in my life. Through the power of the Holy Spirit I will be steadfast and immoveable. The calm influence of the Holy Spirit will always abide with me no matter what comes my way. Now, I override by divine authority any negative agenda orchestrated to divert me from my divine purpose in the name of Jesus.
