I had some technical issues at the beginning of this program so please forgive the abrupt transitions.
Before specifically addressing the shaking that is going on I would like to address the issue of normalcy bias as it so important for all of us in these times; including the subject we are addressing today.
I have made some adjustments to my definition of normalcy bias.
Normalcy bias: The phenomenon of believing one’s situation when faced with a dramatic change: Caused by over-focusing on the actual phenomenon instead of taking appropriate action: A state of paralysis.
Usually, the normalcy bias is associated with negative events but it can just as easily be applied to people being unable to change positively as God leads.
Properly responding to God
Hebrews, Chapter 12:25-29 NLT
“Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the one who is speaking. For If the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the one who speaks to us from Heaven.
When God spoke from Mount Sinai, His voice shook the earth. But now He makes another promise. That promise is once again I’ll shake not only the Earth but the Heavens also. This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed so that only unshakable things will remain.
Since we are receiving a kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping Him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.”
There definitely is a whole lot of shaken’ going on: Not only in America but throughout the world.
There’s a whole lot of shaken’ goin’ on!
The coronavirus is effecting things all around the world, America is experiencing a marxist insurrection, Hong Kong has been in turmoil for the last year and there is more on the way, Europe and much of the world, is experiencing an islamic invasion, and I understand that China is on the verge of a civil war. The world is in turmoil.
So how do we respond to the shaking going on? An honest evaluation of the world’s landscape would cause any reasonable person to be shaking in their boots.
If you are a child of God you are on solid ground!
If you’re a child of God, you don’t reside only in the natural realm. You’re seated at the right hand of God Himself n Yeshua Messiah in the Heavenly realm.
I have always advocated situational awareness and understanding the times. However, continuously focusing on the negative is contradictory to Biblical instructions for life and counterproductive.
2 Corinthians 10:5 says to cast down all imaginations cast down every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Messiah.
Philippians 4:8 says Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report. If there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Proverbs 23:7 As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. I know that many of us “know” these verses but in order for them to work in our lives we need to practice them.
Negative thinking decreases frequency. Higher frequency means more life, more healing.
Positivity raises frequency which is usually a good thing for us. When you think, speak, and act positively your frequency rises.
God cares and individuals AND nations!
These principles apply not only individually, but collectively / nationally.
Psalm 33:12 says “Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh and the people whom he has chosen for His inheritance.
Finally, Matthew 7:7 says “Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it will be opened unto you.
There’s a whole lot of shaking going on and how you come out of it will be determined by your individual approach to what God is doing.
1 Corinthians 15:33 says to be not deceived. When you take your eyes off of God and what He is doing and begin to look at what is going on around you, you’re going to be deceived. Yeshua is the way, the truth, and the life.
Today we have a great opportunity to rise to the occasion in the Spirit of God and walk in His glory: But we MUST remain focused on Him.
