October 13-14, 2007 – Our Unshakeable God Romans 8:31-39 

            We know from history and experience that in many ways, life is uncertain. Civilizations which once rose to glory have fallen. Impressive cities have been ravaged by war or floodwaters. On a more personal scale, relationships, finances, health, and jobs can change with unsettling swiftness. 

            That is why it’s so important to build our faith on a rock-solid foundation—namely, our unshakable God. No one can be more loving, merciful, powerful, or just. He is the ultimate, infinite, and absolute in every aspect of His being. Nothing can make Him move, worry, or waver. 

            We know this because He has revealed Himself to us in His unshakable book: the Bible. The Lord has allowed us a glimpse of who He is—through the history, poetry, prophecy, and narration of His timeless writings. God’s words are just as unalterable and eternal as He is (Isaiah 40:8). Over the centuries, attempts have been made, not just to destroy, but also to criticize, mythologize, and marginalize Scripture. And yet God’s Living Word has endured. This amazing book is still saving lives and bringing people into a right relationship with the Creator. 

            The Bible can never be obliterated because its message is unshakable: The moment that you trust Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are sealed forever by the Holy Spirit, and you become a child of God (Ephesians 4:30). Nothing can sever this relationship (Romans 8:35-39). So stand firm on the Rock, and you will not be shaken (Psalm 16:8).
