Uncertainty looms in our country and in the world around us. What will happen in the Middle East? Will the United States plunge over the “fiscal cliff?” Will we be hit with another natural disaster like Hurricane Sandy?
Governments, economies, and nations can topple. Jobs, homes, health, and even life can be lost. All of these things are temporary. None of them were created to last forever. But there is a permanent, unshakeable Kingdom we can depend on – and be thankful for!
When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: “Once again I will 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. Hebrews 12: 26-29, NLT
Every year as Thanksgiving approaches we begin to reflect on the blessings God has poured into our lives. Family, friends, and church. Physical provision, health, and home. Most of us also express gratitude for our salvation in Christ and the abundant life He gives. But how often do we thank God for His eternal Kingdom?
No matter what earthly, temporal things fall away – and one day all of them will be removed – the Kingdom of God will never be shaken. God’s presence, authority, and power are unmovable and steadfast. His Kingdom is firmly established and our God will reign eternally!
If you have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, you are a citizen of Heaven. You have a place in the unshakeable Kingdom of God!
Voice your thanksgiving to God today for His unshakeable Kingdom!
