When putting the two words ‘shaken’ and ‘Christianity’ together, it can often bring ambiguous thoughts to your mind. Could it mean the shaking of your Christian faith? Could it mean shaking in fear? Could it mean Christianity shaking up the world? Could it mean shaking the dust from your feet? Could it mean God shaking the heavens and the earth? Or could it mean not only shaking of the world around you, but the shaking of everything in your life so that you can be as Christ-like as possible? When you look up ‘shake’ in the concordance you will see the word used in all the contexts I mentioned.
What I am referring to in this article is the last scenario of the shaking of everything in your life so that you can be the Christian God designed you to be.
“He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Luke 6:48 KJV)
Think about it! There is a whole lot of shaking that takes place when a house is being built. There is shaking when the foundation is put in. There is shaking that takes place every time a hammer strikes in order to nail all the pieces of wood together. There is shaking that takes place when the roof is put on. But after the house is finished, if it is made properly, it is ready to withstand the shakings that come against it.
Listen to the following MP3 excerpt:
No doubt it is a scary prayer that is mentioned in the MP3, but are you ready to pray, "LORD, shake everything in my life that can be shaken!"
