Let the Earth be Moved!

The LORD reigns;
Let the peoples tremble!
He dwells between the cherubim;
Let the earth be moved!
~ Psalms 99:1 (NKJV)

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away."
~ Matthew 24:35 (NKJV)

Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
~ Luke 3:4-6 (KJV)

We think of the earth as rock solid. God's Word says He established it upon the waters. We think of the earth as permanent. God's Word says the earth shall pass away. We think of the earth as fixed in its orbit. God's Word says, "Let the earth be moved!"

We are made of the same terra firma we walk upon. Our will and selfish lusts can be as unyielding as rock. And the human heart is the soil which needs to be broken up over sin, softened with the Spirit of living waters, and sowed with the seed of God's Word to bear fruit.

The Lord's kingdom on earth is coming soon. Both earth and heavens will be shaken, valleys will be filled, mountains laid low. God levels the very earth to make the way smooth before His coming. If we desire His Spirit to inhabit us more fully, our will must crumble before His.

Our Lord and King, You have shown us favor beyond measure to purchase us with Your blood. You deserve to reign in our hearts without being challenged by our flesh made of earth. Whatever we will that is less than Your will, please shake us and level us and move us to yield.
