The Key to Remaining Unshaken

The Key to Remaining Unshaken

April 17, 2017

“We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” 2 Chronicles 20:12b (NIV)

Devotion Graphic

My son was 15 years old when our lives were shaken to the core. He was spending the night at a friend’s house a few doors down when I received a phone call that something was not right. My husband and I heard the ambulance go by our home, and we ran down to witness our son at the end of his first grand mal seizure.

When I saw him, I fainted not once but twice. The ambulance drivers thought they were going to have to put me in the ambulance along with my son … but I told them I would be fine. I was traumatized, but I knew what I must do.

I needed to turn my eyes from what I saw and look to the Lord.

In today’s crazy world, fear can grip our hearts and shake us to our core. But when we keep our eyes on God, we can stand strong — whatever the circumstances swirling around us.

Hidden in 2 Chronicles is an amazing story of the ancient Israelite King Jehoshaphat of Judah. When he first heard about three fierce armies coming to attack his kingdom, do you know what he did? Scripture tells us, “Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the LORD, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah” (2 Chronicles 20:3, NIV).

Jehoshaphat praised God before he cried out, “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

For several years following that fateful night, our son had multiple seizures. Like Jehoshaphat, my family and I faced three armies of our own: fear, lack of wisdom and the words of others.

We faced the fear our son could have a seizure at any place or time and die. We lacked the wisdom to know the best way to treat our son. And, I faced wonderful people (with well-meaning intentions) who would tell me awful stories of people they knew who had died from seizures.

How can we graciously respond to these kinds of hardships and not give in to fear?

God answered King Jehoshaphat — and all of us — by saying, “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chronicles 20:15b, NIV).

Three big ol’ armies were headed their way, but the people chose to trust the power and promise of the Lord. And they chose to fight with an unusual weapon: praise songs (verse 21).

Now see what God did to Jehoshaphat’s enemies: “As [the appointed men] began to sing and praise, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated” (2 Chronicles 20:22, NIV).

When Jehoshaphat and his kingdom were confronted with an overwhelming challenge, they prayed instead of worrying. They moved their eyes off the problem onto the ultimate Problem-Solver. Although they didn’t know what to do, they were unshaken and filled with God’s inexplicable peace as they walked in faith.

My family endeavored to do the same. When I was afraid, I began my prayers with praise. When we had to make a decision, we asked for God’s guidance, and He led the way to the best doctors. And at night when I heard the echoes of those well-meaning people and their stories of death, I allowed God to fight the battle and realized they meant no harm.

God carried us through, defeated the enemies circling us, and — after a decade — healed my son. He still faces other medical issues, but he has learned to “keep [his] eyes always on the LORDso he “will not be shaken.” (Psalm 16:8)

What are you facing today? That battle is not yours, it’s God’s. Start by praising God for who He is, then rest in the fact that the Creator of the Universe goes before you to help tackle whatever problem stands in front of you.

Lord, I praise You for Your power. I need only to look to You, because You will go before me and fight my battles. Please forgive me for the times I take my eyes off You and become shaken and fearful. Help me step out in faith, knowing You go before me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
Psalm 16:8, “I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” (NIV)

Hebrews 12:1b-2, “let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (NKJV)

  1. This sounds like a book I need to read! It’s so easy to end up on rocky, uneven ground…ground which I choose to walk when I turn away from God. I want to be unshaken!

  2. Unshaken…is the greatest news that I have heard. With the recent loss of my husband and now the possibility of my dad coming to live with me, is a road of fear and great anxiety. I am finding that being unshaken is hitting me right to the core.

  3. Sharee Gaiser says:

    I am ‘shaky’ at best, sometimes approaching prayer with a mix of tentative hope and a need to plead. I want my prayer life ‘shaken up’, redefined and renewed, so that I can come boldly before the throne of grace and converse with the lover of my soul.

  4. My faith has been tested, stretched, torn, and repaired in 2017 like never before. I’m trying to make the most of this growth period so I’m better prepared for the next season. 🌸😁✝️

  5. Susan G. says:

    Thanks for these truths! I have often told myself and others to keep their eyes focused on Jesus and not the problem or trial or ‘mountain’ in front of them.
    God is the only One who can give us peace and lead us through the challenge!
    Bless you!

  6. What beautiful guiding words
    Thank you for sharing !

  7. Been going through a miserable divorce for 2 years now and my ex is trying to keep the kids. I am shaken. I’ve been looking down for so long, I’ve forgotten to look up. I know He waits for me.

  8. Jeni Bartoszewicz says:

    I’m shaken to my core in the most terrible battle of my life. Thank you for your incouraging story. I’d love to read Unshaken and gather knowledge, wisdom & strength while reading it. ~Blessings~

  9. Christine says:

    I would love to have a copy of “Unshaken” to read along with my daily devotional. When going thru a storm, I often doubt that God is with me and take my eyes off him and start to panic. This looks like the book to read to strengthen my walk with God.

  10. In that phrase in Hebrews 12:1b-2 “set before us”, that is repeated in “set before Him”, I saw the answer that YOUR testimony already portrayed – that His JOY is what enables me to persevere and to overcome. Thank you for sharing this wonderful true story of your life and its weaknesses. It is truly God’s power made perfect in our weakness. Bless you

  11. Stephanie Wong says:

    Thank you for sharing your story and God’s divine word. As taxes are here and I have no idea how to do it and asked the Lord for help and praising him anyway for all the times He helped me and remembering the memorials of countless blessing and reading this I am confident He will meet my need. A friend offered to help me do my taxes, my customer whom I clean for gave me off and agreed to alloq me clean on Tuesday. Praise God! He is good. Mahalo nui for sharing 💖

  12. MARIE CARMICHAEL says:

    Very inspiring story. We have been trying to get pregnant and have had tests done that prove everything is “normal”, I ask that you help pray with me to help myself and Derek be able to conceive our miracle baby in God’s timing, as hard as it is to wait, despite the fact we are getting older and losing hope.

    • My husband and I tried for a long time,married 11 years and tried to have a baby. I prayed and stressed about it. I finally resigned myself to give the decision to God and said Your will be done. I was relaxing reading and felt cramps but has no period and told my husband. He asked if I.wanted to.take.a.pregnancy test. Bought one and Wow, what a blessing! Twin boys! I had them when I was 35 and they are now 15. I pray that you can let go and let God. Trust in Him that his timing and plans for you are perfect. My thought and prayers go.with you and your husband.

  13. David Sewell says:

    Thank you for a powerful devotion

  14. I’m so glad I subscribed to Daily Encouragement. Every morning since I’ve subscribed in the wee hours of the morning I’m reading. It helps me when I’m feeling some kind of way and after reading and saying the prayer; I feel so much better as if a heavy weight has been lifted off my shoulder. I have been going though this fear, anxiety, and not trusting people anymore, because of the hurt they have caused me in the past. So, I wants to thank you for bring God’s word back to me.

  15. Just reading this…lost an aunt18mths ago and because of dementia had to admit another one to a home…had looked after these ladies for 10yrs. I ended up with a severe depression and asked my pastor (on doctors advice) to talk to him….for a year he has put it off then said he hadnt time. So after a lot of pain went to see someone who wasnt a christian. I am shaken to the floor cant read my bible…dont know if I want to….havent been to church…am totally beaten

    • Ann, I am so sorry for your losses and depression. Please pick up your Bible once again, read the book of Job, find another church and a good doctor to help you with your depression. Depression can be caused by loss or a shock to ones system; there is help for it! Don’t lose hope-many will be praying for you!

      • Yes, please pick up your Bible again and read Romans 8:26. You can do this and please don’t give Satan the power to discourage you. Praying for you. ~Lisa~

    • Ann, put your energy into your relationship with God instead of relying on human for help–people will disappoint, but God is faithful. I agree with Kathy about picking up your Bible! Read the Psalms. You’ll discover that the great king David had his own struggle with darkness, but he chose to focus on the light of the Lord. His words can be your hope. Know this–the whispers of hopelessness that say “you won’t find anything in the Bible” and “there’s no reason to worship” come from the enemy, not God.

      “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith” (1 Peter 5:8-9).

      Lord, give Ann eyes that read your word, ears that hear your love, and a heart that knows she is your precious child. Close her ears to the lies of the enemy. Fill her mouth with songs of praise. Amen.

    • For 25 yrs doing my beloved moms eldercare, I began by maki ng an appt w/IRS to become Rep Payee, then an appt w/local govt Cncl On Aging staff Ombudsman…a best resource. After 20 yrs, the bible chapter Job 29 helped me — the life journey of a righteous servant to a needy is verse 29:13. Mom was alone, had held our fam together. After dad left, everyone still loved her but were too busy. Your yrs are known to God. Blessed yrs He will restore to you.

    • Ann I would encourage you to go to a person you know who is a Christian for support. I have accessed professional counselling from non Christians which has been very helpful if I balanced it with reading my bible and crying out to the Lord. I don’t know anything about your church or yiur pastor, but from what you have shared I wonder if it is time for yiu to pray about attending a new church. Perhaps even just a bible study or fellowship group that is linked to a different church as a start. Yiu are not alone. I have learned that even when we are not praying, God already knows our troubles and is patiently, loving,y waiting to help us. Go to Him today Ann- right now. Praying for you sister in your heartbreak and exhaustion.

    • Ann, I too have, and still do, suffer from depression and God is the only way I can get through the day. There are allot of times​ I can’t seem to make myself pick up my Bible but I call out to the Lord and He helps me to put one foot in front of the other. There is power in the name of Jesus! Just call on Him and thank Him for what you do have and He will see you through. I know it’s hard but He’ll be with you even when you don’t think He is, He’s there watching over you. Rest in Him, Be Still and know that He loves you.

    • Ann – I am so sorry for your losses! I’ve been through a very long season of losses in the past. I experienced sadness, grief, confusion, exhaustion. It was if the waves kept coming. I’m so sorry your pastor does not have time. Even though discouraging it may be a blessing. Lord, please open a door for Ann-show her a way to a helper. My go to verse is Psalms 56:8 every tear is saved in a bottle. He knows your heartache, Ann. And He loves you right where you are.

    • Ann, bless you for your care of these ladies….now, you need to care for yourself. There is a condition called “Caregivers Fatigue “. “Those who refresh others will too be refreshed” Proverbs 11:25. Surround yourself with Godly women, small prayer groups and even support groups. This is a season…believe in Him to overcome!

    How true, our Saviour is all we need.

  17. Teresa Alger says:

    This story hit home tonight!! It is 1:10 a.m and I can’t sleep since our son is out with friends. He is 21, an alcoholic and addict.
    He talked to me earlier and said, “mom I want to get clean.” This is all before a friend stopped by. We talked for quite some time and I reminded him that he needs to make decisions based on himself not others. Now, he is gone, not home yet. The last time this occurred he showed back home at 4 and was drunk and sick. So, the fear of things not being right is with me on my couch. I am following your advise, and not giving in!!!!!

    • Kristen Kreuzwieser says:

      I encourage you to leave it all to God. My son was much the same. I didn’t know what to do, but I prayed and thanked God. I watched God protect my son in amazing ways. When he decided to get clean well over a year ago, what God did in Him is nothing short of a miracle. I know the kind of night you were having as I had many. I knew with God, everything would be ok. I didn’t know how that looked or when, but I trusted Him. My son has been sober for over a year now for the first time in a very long time. He turned 22 this year and I am so proud of him & thankful to God. Hang in there – remain Unshaken – he will remember your example. ❤️🙏🏻

    • Kim Miller says:

      Teresa, my heart goes out to you. I just want to say your story is my own. I have prayed fervently for my own son to heal of the same. He has come a long way but there are still moments he struggles with temptations. But still, he’s healed alot and God has been blessing him. My son told me once he felt hopeless and was spiritually struggling so I started texting him devotionals almost daily and speak to him of God’s love when I see him depressed and discouraged. I started this about 5yrs ago when he shared he was suicidal….i was so worried but knew this was God’s battle, not mine. I prayed fervently first out if fear and desperation, then with hope and faith.

      Today my son smiles, he shows affection and he speaks with love. He stopped drinking and he owns a successful small company. God certainly intervened and my son is healing. He’s come a long way in five years.

      But still, I see Satan tempting my son often by bringing old alcoholic drinking friends around him. My faith tells me I know God loves him more than I do and he’ll win those battles as they arise. My fear keeps me worrying…..But I pray. So my prayers are feverent and I hold tight to faith that God will not lose a battle when we lean on Him.

      I hope you recognize the spiritual battle and have faith God has a plan and will be victorious and know your prayers are a great weapon against these spiritual attacks.

      I will offer up prayers for you and your son. God is with you both, God bless you.

    • I am an addict and was clean for 10 years at one point but relapsed in 2007. It was awhile before it got bad again but since 2013 I have been to detox twice and a 60 day inpatient program followed by a 30 day inpatient a year later. My mother died in March 2015 and I used a couple of months after that. I am using almost daily since the 1st of this year and know I have to stop. I know what to do to quit I just put it off day by day. My drug of choice is crack cocaine and it is a monster. Please help me pray that today will be the day I sincerely turn back to God.

      • Suzanne..read your email just now and felt nudged by God to pray for you. I hope others, you know, are praying for you as well. But I wanted you to know I care. This addiction you have takes away from you, the person God means for you to be. I pray you can find strength to rise, once again, above this addiction and be mighty and victorious in the battle you are in. Praying for you 4/18/17…from Texas.You are loved…believe that. Your precious life has purpose…believe that! God Bless you.

  18. Sikalula says:

    After reading the unshaken, I really feel encouraged to move on with focus in my life despite the finacial challenges am facing with my family.

  19. Kim Miller says:

    Your daily messages help me start and end my days keeping my mind and heart on God. In this busy and chaotic world sometimes that can be a challenge. I always look forward to reading and reflecting on your Devotionals. As always, your writings and sharing makes me feel as though the Holy Spirit is speaking to me about my own walk with the Lord…your devotionals feel personal for me and help me to reflect on my own personal relationship with God. This particular devotional was no different. Thank you for delivering such a meaningful and guide filled messages every day. I truly look forward to checking your I messages everyday. The spirit of our Lord is surely with you.

  20. I want to be strong in my faith, and UNSHAKEN!

  21. I want to be unshaken!

  22. Cheryl Nickle says:

    My biggest fear is the salvation of my children. Even though they were brought up in the church and I prayed and read the Bible and taught them, the influence of family and the world has pulled them the other way. I believe that the Lord has a plan for their lives, but in the natural I don’t see it. I don’t have a close relationship with either of my children, so I don’t even know what my daughter is doing now. Talk about blind faith!

  23. WOW!!! Just what I needed !!!!!!!!! Thank you God for sending the words of encouragement just at the right time when they were so needed !!!!

  24. Leigh Grady says:

    I would love a copy of Unshaken as I’m entering into a time in my life where I’m having to care for teenagers as well as my aging parents. I need to remember to keep my eyes on Jesus the author and perfector of my faith and rely solely on him for strength, encouragement, and direction. Thank you!

  25. Kristen Kreuzwieser says:

    Thank you for this. I love this passage & look forward to reading your book. I was 9 when I was diagnosed with epilepsy. After 25 years I was healed with surgery, and have been seizure free, medication free & released from the care of the neurologist for 12 years. I understand the armies you faced very well as well the health challenges that can remain. Now I work with families with children who have epilepsy and try to help them remain Unshaken. That’s one of the gifts of the struggle-to comfort others with the comfort God provided.

  26. Marion English says:

    this is so timely my nephew who is 14 had a seizure and we are looking to God to help us in his situation…But God thank you

    • Kristen Kreuzwieser says:

      I was 9 when I had my first one. So many things can cause them. Be encourage by my story and what I’ve seen God do. He healed me and I’ve been seizure free for nearly 12 years now.

  27. Erika McMillan says:

    Thank you for sharing your story. MAY God continue to give you strength & Guide you. The scriptures help my faith.

  28. Yesterday holy spirit ministered to Mr on thus very same issue of bring shaken.in the, times past IR was exodus 14:14.this is so true.his message consistently is fear not.

  29. Yesterday holy spirit ministered to me on this very same issue of being shaken.in times past it was exodus 14:14.this is so true.his message consistently is fear not.

  30. Carla LeNoir says:

    My son is having an MRI later today. Thank you for the reminder where my focus needs to be, on God instead of fear or worry.

  31. Fear is a very powerful thing, no matter our age! We just have to remember that our God is more powerful than any fear!

  32. Thank you for sharing this devotional, because it is just what I needed to hear. I would love to read your book and share it with my daughter.

  33. Tiffany Rodi says:

    Thank you for the devotion.

  34. Cathleen says:

    Thank you 😊 this is the devotion and reminder I need at this very moment. Thanks and glory be to our gracious merciful Father who loves my children and unsaved family more than I ever could💜💘❣️

  35. Eric Williams says:

    My greatest fear is not fulfilling the many talents God so graciously bestowed upon me. The only way I can fulfilled such a promised is to be still and have complete faith. Thank you for this blog.

  36. Lisa mabie says:

    Thank you so much for your wisdom. It came at exactly the right time!

  37. Jerrica Parsley says:

    I pray and fight everyday to be unshaken, this would be a great read!!!

  38. Wonderful, Merciful Saviour. Precious Redeemer and Friend. The battle is always yours to win. Help us to remember that.

  39. Sam Guts says:

    This is so relevant in this day and age!

  40. Divine de Wet says:

    A Word in season. JESUS should always be our focus…a very present Help in times of need. HE holds our world together.

  41. Beautiful devotion. One of my greatest fears is not being able to pay our debt/money issues. And not being good enough. Love the verses, love the devotion.

  42. Holli Wolfe says:

    I desperately needed this devotion this morning. So very thankful that God meets us just where we are, but loves us too much to leave us there. Keeping my eyes on God today.

  43. Thank you.

  44. I understand your fear. My son was diagnosed with epilepsy 2 years ago. Learning to live a “new normal” has been a journey for us all. It’s been a rollercoasrer for everyone, but I can see the Lords hand in it all.

  45. Ashley Icard says:

    My greatest fear is something happening to my husband and child at the same to time. But I know the power of my God. My daughter was born at 28 weeks and weighed only 1 pound. She was very sick when she was born, and had multiple things wrong with her. Even my christian Grandparents were telling me to prepare myself for her death. I was so scared I didn’t know how to go on. Then, I laid my hands on my daughter incubator and praised God for the miracle of this life, and asked God for guidance. As I opened my bible, God comforted me as the first scripture I read was Matthew 17:20, “…if he have faith as a grain of mustard seed… Nothing shall me impossible unto you.” I gave my daughter back to God and trusted Him to take care of her. And after 6 months in the Nicu and 3 surgeries, we brought our baby home. Today she is a healthy 7 year old, and it is because I let God fight the battle.

  46. What a blessing this devotion is to me today. My oldest son, still in high school, walked out the other night and has not been back for a week. He is 18 and we have had issues with him for a while. I know I need to hand this over to the Lord, and I do trust this to the Lord. I am struggling with how to get through the uncertainty of every passing minute. I don’t know what my response should be. I’d love your prayers!

    • Praying with you Joan…oh what a difficult season this can be. I too am too challenged with these times with our young men. I know in my heart it is a war against satan and looked to God for wisdom of grace vs punishment. I have found, through trial and error, straight forward and loving talks feel like what I should always do…not always sure. We can claim victory over their lives as we pray them up to the Lord! He has their future to prosper and as they grow and OVERCOME! If you think he is in danger…or very unusual..seek guidance from local law enforcement or school counselors. Ask the Lord to provide the right Godly resources. Praying that you will celebrate his graduation !!!

  47. Crystal Inman says:

    I really needed this reminder! My biggest struggle is fear of what is going on in my grown childrens’lives and that they don’t seek God for direction. I needed this reminder to keep my focus on God and to continually praise Him in the circumstances.

  48. Mary Ann Guevarra says:

    It’s 2:23 am and the Holy Spirit woke me up
    And the Holy Spirit impressed my spirit to read today’s
    Devotional entitled UNSHAKEN. I thank God and you
    too for such timely encouragement in my time of need
    To be encouraged in the faith. The Lord has given me
    2 chr 20:12 in the past but Psalm 16:8 is new to me

  49. Ashley Icard says:

    My greatest fear is something happening to my husband and child at the same to time. But I know the power of my God. My daughter was born at 28 weeks and weighed only 1 pound.

  50. Karla Davis says:

    Love this wonderful reminder “the battle is not yours but God’s” I have a cross with this inscription on it in my hallway

  51. I am in a desperate place with my daughter. I too am fighting the armies of fear, lack of wisdom, and words of others. Thank you for the reminder of turning my eyes to Jesus AND praying! I have been praying but still have my eyes on her, not Jesus. Your devotion was such an encouragement. Thank you!

  52. Doing our taxes last night was fear enough for me. Seriously though, I need to turn to the Lord in all times of unrest–all times !

  53. I would thoroughly enjoy reading Unshaken. I have been through a few really tough situations in my life that has caused me alot of grief. However, I have to remind myself to walk on the water like Peter (figuratively speaking) and NEVER take my eyes off Jesus. When I do take my eyes off of Jesus it opens the door for Satan to have his foothold on me. Praying for all the readers struggling with their own situations. ~Lisa~

  54. Thank you for this devotional. P31 always provides encouragement and confirmation just when I need it. This follows with all the confirmations about trusting EVERYTHING to the Lord. Blessings to all!

  55. Jane Norton says:

    Unshaken sounds like a great read and one my family and my friends and I would get a lot out of. While I believe and I know The battle belongs to the Lord I take it back time and time again. I don’t let go of the steering wheel and give it to Christ totally. I pray for protection and healing and i still at times will let fear creep in. Ever since we lost our son there are times when I try to take control I didn’t have in the first place. Sounds like a great book and a great study for the ladies I lead in our Bible Study! Thank you for writing this!

  56. linda johnson says:

    So encouraging

  57. Renee Snyder says:

    My friend and I were just praying last night to be able to go through the storms we are facing without being shaken in our faith. Then, this morning I received a daily devotional in my email about being unshaken. It helps to have these confirmations during difficult times. Thank God and thanks for sharing.

  58. Amen!

  59. Marsha Tennant says:

    Faith can steady my soul when fear creeps in. I am reminded to LET GO AND LET GOD!

  60. I need to be unshaken!

  61. So needed this reminder today – thank you God for Your power and that I only need to look to You!

  62. Anderline Bredy says:

    Thank you for this devotion. Perfect timing as I come out of season of great shaking.

  63. Fern Adams says:

    I have a son who has lived a troubled life of drugs prison and health problems and even death I don’t see him as much as I’d like to and worry everyday this book could help me out thankyou for any words of wisdom and grace

  64. Praise be to God, who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ, our Lord!

  65. I would love to have this book.

  66. Donna Bruder says:

    I trust in the Lord, He guides my steps. I struggle with out any human support , as I reach to the Lord, for comfort and to silence the deamons. I pray for deliverance in my loneliness, I know the Lord is close to me and will relieve my needs in this broken world 🌎

  67. Jean Thompson says:

    Wow, this came along at the right time.. Our Small Rural Church is in Great Turmoil right now.. many of our Church officers have resigned, and the members who are left are Senior Citizens on Fixed income. The Ones who stepped up after one of the key people passed away are multi-tasking to the point of Burnout.. If I win I would share this book with Members of my Church.. I work full time and now just had my hours cut by 13 hrs a week…I am feeling Overwhelmed… I am Praying…

  69. Phyllis Connor says:

    Thank you from the devotional i need that words of ro help me grower more. Spiritually in my life.

  70. Jenneffer Richardson says:

    Im glad i found this site. It encourages me daily

  71. Cheryl Frye says:

    Praise Jesus for answered prayers. I trust him as I go through any of my battles and I trust him to provide me peace and let go of my fears. Amen

  72. Thank you for the reminder that the battle is not mine but God’s.

  73. Donyelle says:

    I am in the midst of some serious trials in my life. I am trying to remember to keep my eyes on the Lord and not on the circumstances. I want to be Unshaken in my prayer life.

  74. Yes, please. I could grow from this book.

  75. Thank you! I want to be unshaken!

  76. Thank you for the reminder that I can be unshaken if I am rooted in God and leaning on Him. Sometimes I forget that He provides what I need. I know He will continue to guide me and that I need to continue to seek His guidance and discernment.

  77. LaVada Strickland says:

    I need this right now.

  78. Sarah Rozelle says:

    I would love a copy of this book!

  79. I would love to learn how to be “unshaken” in today’s world! Thank you!

  80. Thanks to the Lord that he is with us and for us in any circumstance of our lives.

  81. This devotional was so timely. I am struggling to have a difficult conversation with my husband. I need to face my fear and know God will take care of me.

  82. Dani Veltri Rosales says:

    I would love to win this book!

  83. Wow I needed to hear this.

  84. Tena Wilson says:

    This particular word like so many came as a reminder to me of God’s ability and strength to handle all my problems and situations. Although we may know this, sometimes things can happen so suddenly it does shake us. I just had one of those things this weekend with my child. I thank God for the devotion as my reminder of who he is.

  85. Thank you for the reminder to praise Him, even in the midst of the storm. Very timely devotion for me and my family.

  86. Felica Smith says:

    I have spent the last few years in a very different environment/culture. I now fear becoming complacent.

  87. SallyAnn says:

    After reading the reviews on Amazon about this book I feel that this is a book I need to read. And when I first saw the first names of the ladies who wrote it I felt that it was special because I am a twin and my sister and I are very close and our names are Sally and Cindy. It sounds kind of silly now that I read it back to myself, but that’s how I felt about it.

    • I don’t think that’s silly at all SallyAnn. I think the Lord does things like that to bless us. That is how intimate He is with each of us. He’s done countless things like that with me. How individual He is. I think that is so sweet of God.

  88. Sarah Morgan says:

    Thank you for this. I needed it this morning.

  89. Susan Miller says:

    Thank you for this devotional lesson. It was very relevant to my life today. Though I know these truths, its easy to get caught up in the problem and lose sight of it. I love it when God uses His people to support and encourage other people snd point them back to His Word and His truth. I would love to receive the new book Unshaken, so if my name happen to be one of the ones pulled, I thank you in advance.

  90. I love these devotionals! Always so encouraging. God bless you all.

  91. I want to become a woman who is Unshaken by life’s challenges and difficult circumstances. I would love to win a copy of the book.

  92. Latrece Davis says:

    Your devotionals are always on time and so on point. Thank you soooo much!

  93. Cathleen says:

    Thank you for reminding us to always begin prayers with praise to our heavenly Father. The battles we face are not ours to fight alone. God fights our battles, but we have to choose to give them to HIM. Always go to God 1st! Keep on using the gifts God has given you all to help us in our walk with our amazing Father! ❤

  94. Stacie R Faus says:

    I know this truth and have learned to keep my eyes on Jesus through all struggles (most of the time). I would love to be able to get this book to share with other women (and as a reminder to myself). It is my passion to learn these lessons and pass them on to others who are full of anxiety and fear. Christ has placed me in many relationships so that I can share His Word with others. This devotional hits home as I had two children who had seizure and God healed both of them. What an awesome God we serve!

  95. If not for trusting God in our battles, I don’t know how we would have made it this far. Our young adult child has battled drug addiction since the age of 14. In the mist of that, I was diagnosed with stage for breast cancer. As these battle continue on, we grow faint, but each day God gives us the strength & knowledge to continue on, knowing it is all for His glory!

  96. brinda farr says:

    I really enjoyed reading your testimony, it was very encouraging.I witnessed a four year old having a seizure,to God be the she’s up & about back to her every day routine. We now know how to react & what to do. We’ll continue to pray for her & family. As well as the entire classroom. Thanks again for sharing.

  97. I am currently shaken about being hurt by other people. Thank you for this devotion this morning. I am reminded to give my problems to God. Unfortunately, I try to handle things on my own. I praise God!

  98. I would love a copy of the new book unshaken!

    I truly enjoy reading your devotions every morning when I wake up , it gives me that push to go to work and deal with everyday life.

    Thank you ,
    Lindsey Hannigan

  99. I cried as I read this devotional. I’m facing something that I need to look to the Lord for. I do feel shaken.

  100. Mark A. Todd says:

    I would love to have a copy of Unshaken
    to give me that extra boost I need to fully connect with Christ in this journey of life.

  101. In this uncertain world Jesus’ words come to mind. Just like he told his disciples FEAR NOT. He is constantly telling me
    FEAR NOT!!! I’ve got this.

  102. Teach me to trust you Lord in every circumstance

  103. As in true God fashion this mornings devotion couldn’t come at a better time. Our family was shaken this past December when we discovered that our teenage daughter had stage 3 brain cancer. Since that time she has undergone 3 surgeries, 6 weeks of chemo and radiation and countless therapy appointments. Our lives were shaken but our faith was not. The devil is trying to pull us away by letting fear creep in often ~ but our God is bigger. She is scheduled to have an MRI on April 24th which I believe (and claim in Gods name) will show no more sign of the cancer. As a parent there has been nothing more difficult than being on this journey with our family, however even in the darkest days the same verse kept coming to mind “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice (in all circumstances) and be glad”. God knew about the tumor and he knew the road we would be on. The verse about letting God fight became my mantra and is the screen saver on my phone ~ the timing of this devotion was not by accident ~ thank you!

  104. Shannon Springer says:

    The ground feels rocky below my feet and I need renewed faith in order to be Unshaken in the Lord.

  105. I would love a copy of this book!

  106. I am the parent of a child with anxiety issues which lead to fear and acting out. There are many days that we, as parents, are at a complete loss about what to do to help our child. How I need to remember to take my eyes off the problem and look to the Lord. “I don’t know what to do but my eyes are on You”. I would love to read this new book for help in doing that.

  107. Yet again, it is like these words were written for me. This morning I was up at 4:00AM praying and worrying about health issues and deadlines. Thank you for strengthening my resolve that God has this all under control! My job is to praise and obey Him!

  108. Victoria says:

    We are overcomers by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). I am praying for all who posted today, that the Lord will move in your situations. He sees you and loves you and promises that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28). My 5 year old son has been healed from seizures; my best friends husband was an addict and has been sober for close to 20 years. Our God is might to save!

  109. Tammy Slamans says:

    I would enjoy reading the encouragement of Unshaken. Thank you for the encouraging devotionals!

  110. Sherry Axline says:

    I have been facing the struggle of supporting myself, my daughter and granddaughter with temporary employment since I lost my job of 35 years in 2013. I am about to lose another job soon and I owe the IRS and don’t know how to be free of the constant fear and anxiety this causes

  111. This comes with practice. I fail so often still. I need to keep my eyes on the Lord and turn to Him first for all my needs.

  112. Thanks for the reminder. I am faced with trying to raise my son alone, dealing with a house falling down around me, a yard of garbage and it all seems impossible! But God is with me, he is bringing me out of an abusive marriage and won’t stop
    Now!!!!

  113. Beth Ann says:

    Learning to let God fight my battles is a real challenge – 29 yrs of making things happen in the military is a hard habit to break – but with my marriage in jeopardy – I know I need God’s love guidance and patience in the battle – knowing he can resurrect anything is what keeps me going – thank you for the reinforcing message

  114. Sheba Reeves says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a free copy of Unshaken!

  115. Would love to win this book for my sister!

  116. My fear is losing my son to drugs (can).
    I am reminded by His Word…turn your eyes upon Jesus…..know that God is still on the thorn..God is in control and the battle is his.

  117. This devotion definitely came at the right time for me. Thank you for your ministry and all you do for the kingdom.

  118. Kathy Bonilla says:

    I could certainly use help with a battle before me right now.

  119. Thank you for this sweet reminder this morning. It has long been one of my mantras for a long time, believing God’s sovereignty and great love for us. I too have faced great foes but He has been with me all the way, faithful and true. Thank you Jesus for going before us, preparing the way, for being the Point Man!

  120. I’d love to win. Thank you!

  121. Kim Russell says:

    I am Shaking and could really use this

  122. Marisol Aviles says:

    I woke up this morning and read proverbs 31 and im learning with every day struggles and battles to give to God and let go. Thank you for your sharing. God bless

  123. Enemies come in all shapes. Sadly sometimes through people we love, and not always through well meaning words….rather other people’s pride. I am really needing the Lord’s help to walk through this one…again.

  124. Danielle says:

    Likes to unshaken devotional. Entering to win a book

  125. I would love the encouragement this book has to offer as o face struggles on my life!

  126. Elisa Sykes-Brees says:

    I am struggling right now with truly wanting to believe that God is for me and He wants the best for me. I have been shaken several times between end of last year and this year. I am trying to hold on and today when I read your devotion I did find some hope.

  127. This sounds like a book I need to read! I allow fear to grip me and cause me to not do things that I feel God is calling me to do. I also allow fear to best me down to the core. Thank you!

  128. Julie Williams says:

    Thank you for sharing your story of God’s faithfulness. I too was taught of the Lord to praise Him at all times, and staying focused in the hard times to the one in control. Your story is a great reminder of His love for us as a conquering Saviour.

  129. Our Risen Jesus goes before me in all things and helps me through difficult seasons. Would love to read your book.

  130. Linda M Dickinson says:

    There are so many things to be fearful of these days, but it is good to remember that God has already won the battle.

  131. Can’t wait to read this book! Enemy is attacking hard these days!

  132. linda hoffman says:

    “unshaken” sounds like the title to an excellent book! After reading today’s devotion it really intrigued me to read more. I love that story of Jehashophat!

  133. Even though it might seem trivial to some I have a few overwhelming battles that I can’t fight on my own and need God’s wisdom. Thank you for the chance to win this book even though I hesitated to enter because someone else may need it more than I do! Either way thank you for this devotion! May God bless you for sharing His word!

  134. The distractions of this world will take my eyes away. That is when my fear is at its highest. Thank you so much for reminding me to keep my eyes upon Jesus. I am looking forward to reading your book .

  135. Susan Hughes says:

    Please help me to learn to be unshaken

  136. Rhonda Eroh says:

    How I wish I could remain unshaken in today’s world. I have grown in this area, but still need to trust God more!

  137. Steve Schwarz says:

    I saw this devotion on Facebook and scrolled right past it. Got five or six posts down and something made me stop and go back to read it… the Lord perhaps? I need to reread it and ponder it a bit, but while I am here, I am moved to enter the contest. Peace to you!

  138. Claiming victory in God that I Will Not Be Shaken

  139. Gretchen Scoleri says:

    One way is to trust God when I’m afraid. Knowing that HE is my provider!

  140. Paula Bryant says:

    I love your Proverbs 31 devotions they always appear to fit that days circumstances. I am sending it to my girlfriend whose son suffers from constant seizures as well thank you

  141. Thank you for sharing. The battle is the Lord’s…does that really sink in? God gives us a peace…not as the world does but an indescribable peace. He loves us beyond what we can comprehend. Prayer changes everything.

  142. Wonderful devotion for all worries.the prayers for scriptures gave me guidance.

  143. Would love to win a copy. After decades of health problems — including grand mal seizures — and doctors who haven’t been able to figure out what is wrong, I recently had an imaging scan that revealed a mass in my head. I’m trusting (and praising) God. He is giving me the wisdom, inspiration, and guidance to do so. God is good!

  144. Our God is an awesome God! He reigns!

  145. Anonymous says:

    I’m walking in uncertain times right now. My husband has left my children & I to chase gambling and drug addiction. My family is now facing a move from our home, relocation, new schools, new jobs, etc. The unknowns are frightening and I literally hurt for my children and how their lives have gone from secure to uncertain. This book sounds like an encouraging, reassuring read – confirming I don’t have to know all the details of how this will play out in the next few months. God has this and makes all things work together for our good.

  146. My greatest fear is that I’ll mess up and misrepresent Christ. I have strong emotions, and sometimes tempers flair. I know that I can trust God that He can handle every uncertainty I may face. Thank goodness He is full of compassion and grace!

  147. Sharon Bouknight says:

    I would love to receive a copy of Unshaken!

  148. My biggest battle is interceding on behalf of my retired 55 yr old PTSD marine suffering marine…so many flashbacks…survivors guilt plague him every day…our relationship is so tough…I’m getting depressed myself …I pray for his healing…I know our Creator can do it…I fearful…Marine is so fearful & hates being sick.

    Pkease help him…pray 4 him…& me as we tru to tackle this battle….thank u

    • Please surround Jenny and her soldier with your holy angels. Comfort him as the flashbacks come. He may not want to go there emotionally. But, perhaps when he goes there you have a message for him? Perhaps a message of love or forgiveness. Perhaps a new insight. Please bring resources into their lives to help calm the fear and settle his mind. Help Jenny to stand strong with the full armor of God. Strengthen him with your love and wisdom. Protect and heal his mind from the evil and heartache he has seen. In Jesus name WE pray. Amen!

  149. Jodi Primmer says:

    Unshaken– that’s what I want to know more about!!

  150. Michelle says:

    I am fighting several battles right now. Thank you for the reminder that God goes before me and that the battles are his.

  151. What a wonderful message this morning!

  152. This message came at just the right time. Thank you!!

  153. In today’s world it is tough to stand consistent in our faith and I would love to give this book to one of my high school girls at church as an encouragement to her, as she walks in faith every day at school. She has had some tough conversations and encounters with her friends this year and I would love to get her this book:) thank you for all y’all do!

  154. Ashley M DeClue says:

    Such a powerful, but simple message. Reminds me to praise him in the storms.

  155. Julie Detrick says:

    What a beautiful reminder to trust and praise God in all circumstances ! Thank you so much for sharing your story and heart for Gods word. I have fallen to my knees to many times to count in prayer and praise to our Awesome God ! Blessings, Julie

  156. Kristen Kohler says:

    Thank you for this message. For the first time in 20 years, I was laid off. I’m a single mom with a mortgage and bills to pay and am uncertain as to where God will lead me. The courage to keep my focus on HIM and to not dwell on the uncomfortable fearful unknown is what I need to keep reminding myself of- The battle is not mine, but HIS. Thank you!

  157. Mary sam says:

    I would love this book. Need to rise above my anxious fears

  158. Liana Diaz says:

    Thank you for such a nice reflection it is the perfect thing at the perfect time exactly when it is needed

  159. Renee Furphy says:

    I woke up this morning with an irrational, but very real fear. Something that can very well happen it hasn’t happened and I let this fear just grip me. I came outside to pray and seek the Lord, but couldn’t get settled so I picked up my phone looked at Face book and saw this article. Perfect words and a perfect time! God is good. I’m learning and desiring to seek Him first and to stand in that confidence! I Would love to read this book!

  160. Just like so many others my life is on very shaky ground. My two adult children are living in such a way that I fear for them. Drugs, alcoholism,sex, disrespect for themselves and others. No matter what I say or how I try to help them… nothing ever changes. I’m weary. This has been going on 17 years. I so need to be unshaken in my walk with the Lord. My faith needs to be strengthened. I don’t like the place I’ve come to…numb,scared. I will try (it’s hard at times) to look to Jesus and not the trials. Thank you for your words of hope and comfort.

  161. Victoria J. Stille says:

    Just what I needed to read this week as I have testing done the end of the week!! Thanks for the encouragement and reminder to keep my eyes on Jesus

  162. Bev Heydinger says:

    I needed this today as our son (29) goes to the specialist today about a possible terminal diagnosis. We have been waiting since 2/1 for him to get in. Thanks for the reminder our gentle giant belongs to the Lord.

  163. Thank you for the devotion this morning. I am a new mom and trying to trust Jesus with my little girls health. Its become a daily laying down in prayer that really keeps me focused on the one who controls the outcome of everything.

  164. So excited to read this book!

  165. I really needed to read about how to be mistaken today. My father died and it’s turned me into a shaken person. I so want to be mistaken again.

  166. i have been fighting a spiritual battle for a year an a half, and the Lord has been faithful to me. When I have been feeling sad, discouraged, anxious and depressed, the only place I have been able to find comfort has been on my knees and crying out to God I know the the Lord is increasing my faith and through the Word of God and your words of encouragement He is reminding me to always keep my eyes on Him. No matter what comes my way, He will always fight my battles. God bless you!

  167. Kim Pacheco says:

    Thank you for your story, we sometimes forget that God is the one who moves our mountains, fighting our battles

  168. Mistaken should be UNSHAKEN

  169. Thank you for this important reminder!

  170. I have been shaken. Praying for God to hold me up as only HE can Thank you.

  171. I was sent this by my sister who knows i have been shaken by worries over my children. This devotion spoke to me. Thank you

  172. Maria W. says:

    Thank you for this truth!! I need a reminder every day, actually every hour, that God has what I’m going through in His more than capable hands and I can trust Him alone. Our son is a prodigal son and we’re waiting patiently for the day when he comes home to Jesus and to us. Friends are standing with us but there’s nothing like knowing God is in control and fights this battle for us! I’d love to read this book–sounds inspired of God and encouraging!

  173. My daughter is 22. Two years ago she was diagnosed with a condition called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) after having issues for years. She just had to withdraw from college for the 3rd time. This “syndrome” does not have a cure. Basically it involves just treating the symptoms which are many and difficult. I know it is difficult for her, but it is also difficult for me. I want to make her better. I am having difficulty coping every day. I say that I have faith in God but I feel like a failure because I don’t seem to act like I believe that. I just want to cry all the time.

  174. Jessica Komatz says:

    I’d love a copy!

  175. Thank you so much for this today, I am going through some sudden life changing medical problems right now also. This was just what I needed to hear. If I don’t win the book I will be ordering it.
    Thanks again.

  176. This message spoke to me today. Even though I know God is with me fighting my battles, I do not feel at peace. Thank you for your encouragement.

  177. This is exactly what I need today as we begin our two weeks of state testing part two. The Lord knows what my school needs to meet our goals. He knows what I need as a school leader who works so hard to raise student achievement. Praise God for winning this battle for us.

  178. Tori Jones says:

    This devotional was exactly what I needed this morning. My God is amazing like that. The last few years have been quite a test. Most recently my mom was diagnosed with stage 3 uterine cancer. That alone is enough but she’s mostly disabled from MS. Now we’re at a point where she may need to stop chemo. This devotional gave me a faith shot in the spirit. Thank you!

  179. Peggy Cuomo says:

    This book sounds amazing. Declaring, I am Unshaken! 💖💗

  180. Lord help us when we don’t know what to do, to fix our eyes on YOU.

  181. Learning to be God-dependent instead of self-dependent with my troubled marriage by putting the future of my 33 year marriage in God’s hands and working on healing myself from the destructive mental effects it left in me. God has blesses me daily!

  182. Thank you for this today! I needed this reminder to turn my eyes to the Lord when I am gripped with fear! My daughter is type 1 diabetic. I too battle fear with this disease, she was 8 when she was diagnosed and is now 12. My biggest fear is at night, as she could have a severe low sugar and die in her sleep. My husband and I check her blood sugar several times a night, even with our diligence, she has had 3 hypoglycemic seizures, meaning her blood sugar was to low. Seizures are a terrible thing to witness! Thankfully we have an emergency glucagon shot that we can give her that will stop the seizure and bring her sugar up! Fear is a terrible emotion when it grips, again thank you for today’s reminder! I will look to the Lord with praises when I feel that fear AND when people give well meaning, but very insensitive advice. Blessings to you and your son! Thank you for sharing!

  183. Melissa Lewis says:

    What a great devotional to start the day…. I have definitely been shaken… thank you for the reminder to not be held by fear but trust God with our problems and that He goes before us.

  184. Thank you so much for the reminder and godly exhortation to take my eyes “off the problem” and to “keep them on the Problem Solver”. Impossible is not in God’s vocabulary. He is worthy of our trust. He can and will keep His precious ones “unshaken” despite our shaky world.

  185. KEISHA L BLUE says:

    Praise be to God for using this Word this morning to remind me Who He is!!!

  186. lisa q moore says:

    how providential! this so clearly states what God was showing me yesterday during my run on the beach as i was talking to him about our eldest son and his ongoing issues of mental illness and drug abuse. appreciate the wisdom shared.

  187. This is just what I needed to hear this morning …. fear and hopelessness have crept in and I need to put my eyes on the Lord and praise Him. Thank you!

  188. This book sounds like an awesome read! Thank you for such an uplifting devotional this morning!

  189. Just what I needed today as I battle with anger and fear after my middle child (a believer) decided she no longer considered herself a gender at all and was planning and saving to her her body altered to a “non-binary” state and is now dating her best friend who also considers herself gender free. I must pray! Always! She is God’s child first.

  190. Peggy Carey says:

    Thank you so much for Proverbs 31. You have been there to begin my day over the years and to deposit Gods truth in my hectic days. Thank you.

  191. Letting God be the one to battle is something I struggle with all of the time.

  192. Oh, yes! 2 Chronicles 20:12 is starred in my Bible. How many times this sentence has expressed my feelings and the desire of my heart. Thank you for fleshing out this passage with a wonderful personal example, highlighting the “armies” we face daily.

    My husband and I have close friends who we seem to have offended and this is our prayer as we seek understanding and restoration today.

  193. Trying always to keep my eyes on God.

  194. Penny Hansen says:

    Your daily devotional for April 17th came at the perfect time for me. I am going through breast cancer treatment and have just had an unexpected bump in the road that could detour me off the roadmap that was initially laid out. I will praise God and trust Him in leading me through this time to whatever He has in store for me and continue to share what He has already done in my life through this experience.

  195. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Such a timely word. It wasn’t until last night that the power of the Easter message permeated my soul! I read the previous P31 devotion, and late last night as I turned the eyes of my heart to what the disciples thought they had lost between the cross and the empty tomb. He did not selfishly leave us; He selflessly brought us into the presence of the One Who loves us most.

    It’s like He was saying, “Hang on, Baby Girl! Trust Me!”

    As in this devotion, I again am reminded where am I focused in my hard times? “I don’t know what to do, but my eyes are on You, Lord!”

  196. Thank you!!!

  197. Christina Hernandez says:

    I would love to build my faith up and remain unshaken no matter what circumstances comes my way. God is able to equip me to handle anything!!

  198. I woke up this morning with several situations weighing on my heart and mind. As I prayed I asked God to help me to know what to do because I certainly didn’t know. I opened this email and the opening verse was me! As I continued to read I realized that I momentarily forgot that God is able to do far more than I can. I have taken my hands off. I’m keeping my eyes focused on Him and giving Him praise.

  199. Katherine says:

    I’ve been fighting lymphoma with constant treatments for over a year, including a bone marrow transplant. The Lord has been beside me through it all! But a cancer that won’t go away can be a pretty big army knocking at my fears sometimes. The Lord brings peace if I remember to look back at him. Thanks for this post.

  200. I NEED TO READ UNSHAKEN! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

  201. Melody Tucker says:

    Would love this book for my daughter ❤️

  202. Michele Brunner says:

  206. Susan Wolverton says:

    This was a very powerful devotional to read. God has been talking to me about these same things. Thank you for the encouragement.

  207. This fear also gripped me in 2008 when we found our son having a grand mal seizure in his doorway at 3:00 in the morning. God’s grace that even woke me up to hear him. He still has some small seizures today about every 2-3 months. We too look to God for his guidance in pursuit of treatment of his seizures. I have a blog posted on sweetenedmarriage.com how we must trust God for guidance. Thanks so much for also the hope that to someday my son will be healed.

  208. Donna J Young says:

    Thank you for this wonderful devotion. Like most people, I am fighting a few “armies” of my own, and this was a much-needed reminder for me this morning that my God holds me and my family in the palm of His hands, and He will fight our battles for us. Victory is ours through God! Satan WILL be defeated! Asking for prayers this morning as my husband returns to court to face charges filed by a man who seems so determined to destroy my family just because he thinks he can. I know God’s got this, but I also believe you can never have too many people praying for you. Thank you!

  209. Sharon Williams says:

    Hi. The same thing happened to our family. I found my 14 year old daughter nine years ago having her first grand mal seizure in the shower. Life will never be the same. But God has used this experience to help me grow as a Christian. However, I wish that I could have been the one in her place. She will graduate from college in a few weeks with her bachelor’s degree! God has been so good to us. She is just a couple of months from being 5 years seizure free. We hope to start weaning her off some of the medications that she is currently taking. God is awesome! Like any parent, I wish I could bear this burden for her. But God is bearing it WITH us.

  210. Nora Clouzet says:

    My sister in Argentina she use to preached to the teens this Biblical story… going to the battle without fear and praying Hymns of faith.
    Thank you so much for this maditation. We are Tree sister that we use to sing in church and Evangelistic campaign. Now we have hardships in our families with our congénit health issues in our children and some other psi logic and emotional issues in my nefew.

    My sister and my daughter in law are a warriors in feith. And both are teachers and in particular my Sauternes in law she is a Choi conductor and fine singer and excelente Music educator in a Christian Academy. She post today this page. And it is a bless for me because my daughter in law , 6 month years old, has Aicardis syndrome. She is beautifully . We know this since 5 months of pregnancy. And my son and her wife dicede not to concider the aborcion option as Dos suggested.
    She is a God creature! And is A God battle.
    Thank you so Much! I wish to have this material in Spanish too. I can try to translate, because as a Pastor wife, Mother, Grand mother and a piano and flute teacher, I believe in music is a power and a esponja to claim more FAITH in God battles

  211. Wow……I so needed this devotion today! Thank you for sharing!

  212. Amanda Dunn says:

    Fear is something I struggle with daily to a debilitating extreme. I am so thankful for the reminder that if I am feeling that fear, I have taken my eyes off Him, and need to return them to their rightful place. : )

  213. Nicole Wappelhorst says:

    I’d love to receive a copy of “Unshaken.” Thanks for providing the daily devotional.

  214. Anita Hudock says:

    I really need this Bible study! Being a young widow challenges me to try to be unshaken everyday. God has to walk me through every moment as I am mother and father to three children.

  215. Perfect timing, thank you God!! My son was home this wkend over Easter but I knew in my heart that he was being attacked by Satan once again with relapse. Fear resided in me all wkend without me even realizing how fast it took over my faith & trust in God. Losing my son to drugs is my greatest fear. I have cancer but I know God is healing me, I have no fear. I must rest in the love of God that He is in control & will protect my son also & give me whatever is needed to stand strong in the midst of it all. Thank you God!!

  216. My greatest fear is my ex daughter in law disappearing with my grandchildren. I thank Him for sharing them in my life. I pray for their safety and that they will learn to look to God themselves. I pray for the Holy Spirit to work in my son’s heart.

  217. Amanda Lacasse says:

    Very timely devotion, thank you!

  218. Bernadette says:

    Perfect for today crying out to the Lord

  219. Linda Beaven says:

    Unshaken

  220. This devotional hit home with me as it reminded me of the fear my mom and I felt when we learned I had epilepsy following a grand mal seizure. I also have a spinal birth defect on top of this diagnosis so it was hard to hear the news.

    Life is unpredictable but God is faithful. He will never leave nor forsake us and I know one day I will be given a new body with no sin or disease. Until then, I must keep my eyes on God and rely on his peace and strength. Thanks for this post!

  221. The Lord knew why I needed this today…thanks!

  222. Jessica Burmaster says:

    This is perfectly timed. We are dealing with yet another overwhelming diagnosis for my three year old and I frequently find myself drowning in fear. Using this as my prayer and reminder today.

  223. Tracy Friesen says:

    Thank you for this morning’s devo…truth in the midst of a storm.

  228. Sometimes it hard to not be shaken up by things that are devastating. But my God is faithful and he has carried me through. Thank you for these words today. I would love to have your book.

  229. Joanne Ellis says:

    Thanks for this inspiration, life’s road has become rough and many challenges seem to want to derail us. Strengthen my son Matt as he fights for his family , God goes before him to win the victory! Amen thank you Jesus!

  230. Thank you for sharing your testimony, as it is as if you describe exactly what my husband and I have been walking through since he experienced a medical event not long ago. It shook us to the core and it has been difficult to regain my footing. Only after redirecting my eyes on our Almighty God and remembering to praise Him always because He is our faithful God always, I am able to find my footing again. Thank You, Faithful Father!

  231. Thanks for this awesome devotional today! I really needed to hear some encouragement about overcoming fear!

  248. “In today’s crazy world, fear can grip our hearts and shake us to our core. But when we keep our eyes on God, we can stand strong — whatever the circumstances swirling around us.”
    This statement spoke volumes to me – reminding me where my focus should be. Thank you for your words today.

  249. Shannon Fife says:

    Wow. Just last night on the way home from a trying family gathering to celebrate our risen Savior, I poured out my heart to my husband and to God about all the medical challenges that accompany aging parents and grandparents.I felt overwhelmed and alone. This devotion came at God’s perfect time. Such an encouragement. Thank you!

  250. Jamie Mahoney says:

    This is a great reminder. Although I do not see any battles currently into life, I know they will come and I will be more equipped with these verses.

  251. Thank you for this. Although I am not in an earth-shaking trial right now, I want to be ready for it to happen at any moment… prepared to cling to the Lord when everything else may be crumbling Around me.

  252. Teresa Mason says:

    Would love to receive this book! Thank you for the opportunity!

  253. This came at such a perfect timing for me, as I am working hard on this but need so many reminders. Wonderful reminder to start my day and week with. Would love to read more in this book.

  254. Sarah Strader says:

    A great reminder for when my world is shaken! Thank you!

  255. Melissa Visser says:

    Thank you for sharing your personal story and this encouragement to turn our eyes to the Lord and let him fight our battles!

  256. Thank you for your your encouraging words and bible verse. I will be committing “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” 2 Chronicles 20:12 to memory to strengthen my walk with the Lord. I would love a copy of Shaken!

  257. This world has become a crazy place to live. This is such a needed reminder to keep our eyes on the Lord. Though all may change around us, He remains the same.

  258. Janina Hildebrandt says:

    I’d love to win a copy!

  259. Lord help me to fix my eyes on you, praising you in the blessings of my life and fighting for me the battles that surround my family. Battles that are yours Lord. I trust in you… deliver me and us!

  260. Thx for your pg. Recently left a very abusive situation. This article helped me.

  261. Oh, how I needed this reminder from God this morning. My son was diagnosed with epilepsy almost two years ago right before he left for college. We are still struggling to get him on medication to stop his seizures. I know God gives peace, and slowly I am learning to lay my worries at the foot of the cross, but sometime, fear grips me and I can hardly breathe. The battle is God’s, not mine. Praise be to God!

  262. Vicki Alfred says:

    I am a Children’s Coordinator at our church and would love to have a copy of this book to place in our library for moms who need encouragement. Thanks for sharing this devotional.

  263. Praise be to God

  264. God’s solution to my problem is always better than mine. This was a wonderful reminder of His promises. Thanks

  265. Debi Theriault says:

    I really can’t explain it….I just know that I really need this book !!

  266. My son is struggling with mood bipolar. Not seeking treatment.

  267. Thank you for the devotion. Fear can be a crippling tool used by the devil to torment and destroy a sound mind and a child of God. Praising God through our fears and battles is the tool we need to fight off this dreadful fear. Praise is what He needs and the battle is the Lords. Amen

  268. Great article and on time for my life right now. I greatest fear is not serving in my purpose and bringing glory to God. I want to be able to use my gifts to bring those who don’t know Him to be in awe of him. I want my life to serve a purpose.

  269. Vonda bryant says:

    My greatest fear is not being able to recover from the pain of loosing my husband suddenly and not being able to endure the pain and heartbreak for our two sons.

  270. My teenage son is currently hospitalized with a life threatening illness. He seems to have walked away from his belief in the Lord. This post has given me comfort, reminding me that my son is being cared for by the Lord, and I must trust, obey, and pray.

  271. Sherri M says:

    Wow. I prayed last night for God to tell me and show me what to do about a long, unanswered prayer concerning a prodigal. This was in my email this morning. Thank you Jesus for your unwavering love and faithful promises. ❤️❤️❤️

  272. Debra Hull says:

    Would love to have the blessing of this book as I walk a very challenging season. Thank you for the reminder and encouragement!

  273. Lois Eiynck says:

    I would love to be. Unshaken in God

  274. My husband and I fear my youngest son can not see how important his savior is and how he can change his choice of relationships with the wrong sex. We fear he can become ill from his choices and we fear we will not be able to help him. We fear he does not hear or respect our thoughts on his choice and how he wants evil to become a art of his life. He is lost and needs help in prayers to find his way.

  275. Laura Blackman says:

    This morning’s devotional was key for me. It was an answer to my prayer and helped wipe away my tears.

  276. Heidi Titus says:

    Thank you Lord for the encouragement we all need every day!

  277. Abigail Snyder says:

    Learning to trust the Lord has been a common theme throughout the past year for me. I’m thankful for this reminder today to trust His perfect, good, sovereign plan

  278. Lynda Nolan says:

    This is such a wonderful reminder of how we are to live….I can hear Jesus saying “Again I say unto you…..”. Thank you.

  279. Carolanne says:

    Wow! Perfect timing! Thank you!

  280. I so badly want to go through life unshaken, but struggle with multiple battles on my plate. Thank you for the encouragement.

  281. My oldest son is in turmoil as his wife has just left him for anther man. He is in pain and needs help finding his way . He seems like he has been defeated and lost his confidence to how to feel good about himself.Please send him your prayers and hel him become strong again.

  282. Kellie Jenkins says:

    I am unshaken with the Lord at my side.

  283. I need to be reminded of this today to trust God in spite of my circumstance. Knowing that he has gone before me fighting all my battles for me… Praise the Lord

  284. Sharon Burkett says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this story. Of touched my heart and reminds me that GOD is for me (us) and that when we praise Him HE fights our battles because HE is our Living Abba Father. Thank you for being a Vessel of His Blessings through your sharing ministry.

  285. I would love to have praise be my first response to the circumstances surrounding me. I am looking for a study/book to help guide me.

  286. So good

  287. God is good! I awoke this morning with a heavy heart . I have to make a appointment for my husband at the VA Hospital. We are so afraid…Your message was the first thing I read, the first thing I opened on my IPad! The battle is not ours, It’s the Lord’s. Thank you Jesus!!

  288. Danithe Evra says:

    I believe by reading the book that will help answer some of questions. I have some unanswered questions about my faith.

  289. Gabrielle Marshall says:

    Love the devotional today on praise and trust. So hard to do when I am shaken by circumstances and yet so very liberating! Thank you for sharing.

  290. Such a great reminder, to let God go before us to confront our battles! I love passing these messages on to friends and family. Thank-you!

  291. This came at a time when I needed it. Thank you for reminding me to keep my eyes on him and go to him with my troubles.

  292. I write this because I am a mom of a child who has experienced what Sally’s son has and Sally’s words resonate my story. We have seen death defeated twice. My nights are spent in prayer because the dark of night is hardest. Healing came and with it a promise “I am in her and she will not fail,” Luke6:45. God is good always I lay my fears at the feet of my Savior. Because of His death and resurrection my child never be bereft of Him. Whether on earth or in heaven our God reigns! Amen!

  293. I am in a job where I was not told all of the details. I took a position as a mental health therapist, where I am paid for production, and when I asked about how long people stayed here, I was told that people only left to go to other jobs and were satisfied otherwise. This proved to be false. Pay is based on production, and in this part of the world, adult clients, whom I see, are notorious for not showing up. Most counselors here only make it about a year until they find another job that provides a regular salary. In addition to discovering this, I was not told that I wouldn’t be paid for an entire month, then I was only given half of my salary, something about being paid “in arrears”. I was originally told, also, that I would receive 2 months pay based on a yearly amount until I was put on full production, and it turned out to only be 1 month. In the recent past, it was 3 months! I know that the Lord cares about my granddaughter and I , and I don’t want to base my happiness solely on how much money I earn. I want, however, to be able to tithe and meet my financial obligations. I have already been given a lecture about saying, “God bless you!” to a client, and received an email reflecting that this conversation occurred. This actually goes against the ethics of my license, as we are supposed to be able to be supportive of our client’s spirituality as long as we aren’t trying to force our faith on them. If anyone needs a book like “Unshaken”, it would be me. Thank you for this opportunity to be considered, and God bless you all in your ministry.

  294. Thank you for sharing experience. I had a similar experience while my son was 8 hours away in college. We were awakened in the middle of the night, police officers at our door notifying us our son was in a vehicle accident and in ICU. By the grace of God, he survived. It was a traumatic experience, 2 weeks in the hospital 8 hours from home. Months of doctors appointments and surgery when we returned home. We held onto God’s promises and we experienced so many miracles . He held us close, comforted us, provided our needs, and brought us joy and peace during this difficult time. Although we may never understand why our family had to endure these things, we know the one who does and we trust in his good and perfect plan. I do struggle with fear and continually remind myself that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Blessings…

  295. Jodi Smith says:

    This was such a good reminder to me to turn our worries and anxieties to God! Trust in Him and take it to Him! Thank you!

  296. Natelie Correll-Lowe says:

    The fear that keeps me awake is safety for my grandchildren! So many horrible things are occuring in our world but God is in control! I remind myself of this and wonderful words of wisdom like I read here today calms my fears and helps me return my focus on the great “I Am”
    Thank you!

  297. We have a Mighty God who has our best in mind and will lead us if only we turn to him and listen to His word. Praise God!!!

  298. I find this interesting. This book would be put to great use. Thank you

  299. Adeline Aguilar says:

    God always has a way to speak to our hearts, and if we’re listening, we will hear His words. Thank you for sharing this post regarding our fears. Speaking for myself, too often I begin to worry; looking at my circumstances instead of God my Father. Knowing the truth that He has our best intentions in mind is half the battle. Applying the truth is the other half. Learning as I go… 🙂

  300. I tried to remain unshaken after 23 years of employment and being laid off. I tried to remain unshaken when five months later my husband tragically died and I had to raise three children on my own. I tried to remain I shaken when 30 days later my father passed away. I tried to remain unshaken when one year later my mom passed away. I lay my head on the chest of my Lord and Saviour every day asking for strength and protection. It’s hard. My faith in His spiritual counsel, always surrounding me, is my only comfort. I would love to read your book Unshaken to continue, I pray, receiving Father God’s almighty direction. Thank you for writing your story. Peace and Blessings.

  301. Please pray for my son who is having an echo of his heart tomorrow. I so needed this today. Thanks be to our Creator and for the blessings of the writers here at Proverbs 31

  302. Just thinking last night about moving out on faith…Thank you for this morning’s devotion that I now can move without being shaken from moving forward… God’s blessings continue to overshadow your lives…

  303. Ann Goodner says:

    Thank you for this much needed word this morning.

  304. I am going through some difficult times right now & prayed to God this morning that He would speak to me & give me some wisdom & guidance with all that I’m feeling overwhelmed about right now. I read your devotion & felt God speaking to me. I would like to read the book to show me how more to trust God with all that’s going on in my life right now. Thank you!

  305. Tammy Certain says:

    I really could use this right now , as I’m facing a divorce , after being married for 20 years & have a 17 year old son , we’re going to make the best of it !!! I know that no matter , if I give it to God , he’ll get us through it alll !!! GOD IS BIG ENOUGH !!!

  306. “The Key to Remaining Unshaken” helped me today. Despite the Easter holiday being such a joyful day, I wasn’t able to be with my family. It was hard, especially when I found out a relative was killed in an accident over the weekend. My heart is heavy, but I am trying to give it to God and let Him take care of it. I have to have faith in His plan always. Thank you for the words today.

  307. Oh how I needed to hear your message!! Armies all around, Im feeLing hard pressed on every side. Thank you foe sharing & helping others in reminding us to keep our eyes on our Great Defender!!

  308. Thank you for reminding me to stay focused on my Lord and not my circumstances! My daughter and I both face many physical challenges almost daily and looking at our Savior instead of our problems is the only way to survive. God is still good!

  309. Melissa Conaway says:

    Would love a copy of your book! At 18 months old it was brought to our attention that our sweet baby boy was possibly autistic. We were living in TN at the time and getting him in to be screened and provide him with all the therepies he’d need seemed like impossible. We felt God calling us to IN where my husband’s mom lives. We moved to IN and everything has seemed to fall into place. He has since been diagnosed and is receiving therepy. He went from 2 words to 120 words within 7 months. We still have a long road but we’re learning to follow God’s path.

  310. Celine L. Dillon says:

    I have many fears in this world and this is a very timely reminder for me. As I am reading this, I just felt the presence of the Lord as if He was actually speaking this to me and I started weeping. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Celine

  311. This article blessed me this morning. I need to make a few huge decisions in my life. At times, fear does come in and cloud our judgement. God does go before us and we can always go to him knowing that he will guide and take care of us in every decision, regardless which route we take. Be Blessed!

  312. Donna M Cirillo says:

    Thank you for your very inspiring piece and for reminding me that God is always in charge no matter the circumstances.

  313. Patricia Williams says:

    Oh wow! I feel ashamed for having looked into this group a couple of times but not following through and joining. Maybe why my daughter is still my prodigal. Forgive me Father; help me pray more steadfastly for Your child who you have given to my care, in Your SON’s mighty and matchless NAME, I pray believing, Amen.

  314. Lisa Booker says:

    Thank you for this word..I have been in the hospital for one week..with little known as to what happened really to get me here..but I know..1 and 1/2 years ago I threw the man I had been married to for 26 years out of my home after his girlfriend showed up at my door..it has been a year and a half of healing and taking care of my college aged children’s needs by taking a second job..I have tried to remember that this battle is not mine..but i went into fix it survival mode and God finally said I must get your attention …this is not your battle..thank you for reminding me that all He asks of us is that we trust and have faith…

  315. I would love to read “Unshaken” as I approach another unsettling situation in my 23 year old son’s life.
    Lord, be with us.

  316. Elizabeth says:

    Such a great devotional! Everyone has their own struggles and it is such a great reminder for us all to keep our eyes on the One who holds it all! Thank you!

  317. Temenia Baxter says:

    Thank you for the devotional and more importantly the prayer. Although my situation is different, your story inspired me, and you really never stop praying for your children regardless of their age. I thank God daily for him never leaving me or forsaking me, and I stand on his promises.

  318. Judith Minchew says:

    The book sounds wonderful! I could use some help remaining unshaken as my husband and I face various medical issues as we are “aging.” Growing old is not for wimps and sissies! (A quote from my doctor several years ago.)

  319. Thank you for using your gifts from God to build us up in Christ.

  320. Cynthia Brown says:

    Thanks so much for sending this message on this morning. I received the message with great Praises to my God for continuously strengthening me through his words. This passage reassured me that my Faith is the key to endure when faced with various situations and obstacles! Blessings!

  321. Unshaken – yes, the world throws so much at us all the time but God is bigger than the world. We just started a mentoring ministry for women in our church. I would love a copy also as another tool in our mentoring kit. God bless you all.

  322. There is so much truth in this message. I faced a very challenging and heart breaking time with my teenage daughter. We faced an issue that I never thought I would that overwhelmed me in many ways. I was able to face the issues at hand and put one foot in front of the other and walk out of the darkness and thankfully bring my daughter along. The experience has actually blessed us with strengthened faith and an even more personal relationship with God. There are moments when fear still creeps up and overtakes me, but I am able to remember how powerful God’s presence is and how I must trust in him at all times. Thank you for this powerful and important reminder. God Bless everyone as we continue this journey of life and may God provide us with the continued strength to overcome our obstacles and to remember his presence with us at all times!

    • Laura Childes says:

      These verses and words or encouragement/application were so poignant. The words were so helpful that I am “making room” for them on my painted chalkboard wall that is already full!

  323. Thank you for such a timely message. I woke up today feeling so overwhelmed and feeling like I am in an undertow and feeling so alone. Once again I am reminded, I am NOT alone and that I need to cast ALL my cares and anxiety on HIM!

  324. Robin Roembke says:

    A very timely devotion. Just in my time of great need. Thanks for the daily encouragement.

  325. As I read this beautiful article I think about the time in my life when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I was in shock but during that time I turned to the LORD and each and every single time I went to the Doctor I reminded Myself what God’s word says , “By His stripes I am healed”. Now I am 6 years cancer free and I truly believe in standing on GOD’s word and not giving up.

  326. Donna Cobbins says:

    I want to have that unshakable faith in my Christian walk. This book unshakable is a tool I can used to obtain this unshakable faith.

  327. Pattie Martin says:

    Thank you for this huge reminder! My son had a man come see his apartment to rent yesterday. He was shaken to the core and remembered when he was attacked in his home by three young men. I was shaken last night about it because it was out of my reach to help him. I kept putting my eyes on Jesus and knew that after reading your story and the recent song by Faith Hill “Keep Your Eyes on Me” that it is now my mantra. I was able to sleep much better keeping my eyes on the only One who is fighting my battles. Thank you for being there with me too! God bless you.

  328. I struggle with fear so this message was so good for my heart. Just what I needed to hear today!

  329. Andrea Chase says:

    Thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for reminding me to keep my eyes on the Lord.

  330. Vicky Yarbrough says:

    My husband is still recovering from prostate cancer and is starting to have other symptoms that are concerning. I am choosing to wait to worry, but I sense that some shaken times are coming.

  331. Unshaken, what a great message this morning. I felt overwhelmed this morning but your devotional helped me put things in perspective. Thank You!

  332. Siw Brown says:

    Thank you for your daily encouragement. God speaks to me through your messages. Every time I need to find an answer to my prayers I can find it.

  333. This devotion this morning is exactly what I needed to hear. I’m struggling with trying to get my son to admit to the problems that he has. I so needed to hear these words. I pray and pray for him and his wife. I needed to be reminded that it’s God’s battle. It’s just so hard to not worry because he’s still my baby boy at age 27.

  334. Meredith Kaplan says:

    It’s a great reminder that we need to praise when our problems appears.

  335. Ann McCune says:

    I loved the devotion this morning…so timely! I would love to receive a copy of UNSHAKEN. Keeping my eyes on Him! Ann

  336. Richard Mathis says:

    I was first diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer,now am being treated for bladder cancer,I have been struggling with stage 4.kidney failure as well.Today’s reading really lifted me up to believe God can help me through this storm.

  337. My deepest desire is to live each day ‘unshaken’ by the broken relationships and betrayal that crossed my path this past year. Attempting to make sense of the series of painful circumstances that occurred has driven me to the feet of Jesus, looking up for answers that I may never discovered in this lifetime. To trust and have faith unconditionally, not knowing the direction Jesus is taking me, or the outcome of the situation, is at times excruciatingly unbearable. However, knowing He has my best interests at heart is not unbelievable. Thank you for this post today.

  338. Michelle Fuhrman says:

    This is a message I needed to hear. I recently had to start taking medication to alleviate a heart issue I’m having. I’m not terminal but the whole thing has left me with questions and side effects. I know God has this in my heart but my mind is having a hard time believing. I’ve felt the Holy Spirit calling me to praise but I’ve just ignored it. No more. I pray the Lord continues to call me near and praise Him. I really want to do this study and read the book Unshaken. Psalm 16:8 will be my verse for this week and I’ll continue to carry its message with me. Pray that I give up this pathetic attempt of control and trust God in all He has for me. He’s my good good father.

  339. Janna Iler says:

    Thanks for these encouraging words! It is a great reminder of the One who fights for us if we keep our eyes on Him and trust Him! I needed this, this morning!

  340. Thank you for your uplifting and insightful daily messages that help to keep others uplifted!

  341. Thanks for that personal example of trusting God to be God in the midst of scary circumstances.

  342. Tanya Keeth says:

    I loved this article and would love to learn more and be able to share with others.

  343. How amazingly changed our lives are when we remember that God goes before us to prepare for the battles! Thank you for this reminder that we need to put all our faith always in God to fight our battles! And be unshaken by the enemy!

  344. The timing of this is impeccable. I literally was begging God this morning to speak to me as I face many changes and don’t know what to do. This story about King Jehoshaphat is one of my favorites and viewing it from this fresh perspective reinforces how God’s Word is ever alive and powerful. Thank you for your obedience in listening to Him by sharing this word. It has blessed me an undoubtedly countless others.

  345. Heidi Taylor says:

    Great reminder of where we draw our strength and who is in control.

  346. Jill White says:

    Would really enjoy the book Unshaken. Last fall some “shift” happened in my body and we still don’t know what happened. My faith has been shaken to the core as I’m mostly debilitated. I’ve walked with Jesus for 40 years and have never wondered where He has been in any trial until this one.

  347. Yes, I have been shaken deeply. I don’t know what the future holds, but I am learning to declare one day at a time that I am trusting in the Lord. This battle is his. All praise and honor and glory to him.

  348. Vickie Spires says:

    At my job I am working with a poor Mama who has a critically sick daughter. I hope you will pray for them. If I won a copy of this book, I would give it to this Mama who is going through so much hard right now.

  349. Tanya James says:

    This Word encouraged me because I am feeling so fearful because of what I see in the natural. I’m searching for guidance and strength from God for a difficult situation in our lives. The storm is raging and I need the peace of God.

  350. Thank you for this devotional today. Great encouragement!

  351. Marjorie says:

    Thank you for the reminder that He goes before us to fight the battle.

  352. Thank you for your encouragement through Gods word

  353. My eyes got off focus was becoming fretful and fearful over those I love that don’t know the Lord and some have walked away from Him.
    Today’s devotion has whispered ever so sweetly to my heart- don’t give up, keep praying and praise Him as I do.
    He fights all Battles- I just need to be faithful and continue praying and trusting Him with all my concerns.
    I will not be shaken.
    But God…

    Thank you, truly would love to win today’s book.

    Sweet Blessings everyone!
    Denise

  354. Nothing has held my heart in a tighter vice grip than the fear that my children will suffer harm; either by their own doing or something/someone else. Moms In Touch helped me through the school years but nothing could prepare me for my eldest to enlist in the Marine Corp and go to war! His body survived those years; praise God, but his soul and spirit were wounded. He is now a head strong 30 year old who sees the world differently than my other 2 kids. He has decided that he does not believe in the “Good News” of Christ! He cannot put into place the idea that a loving God would allow the suffering that he has seen or that Jesus could be the only Way! His journey of walking away has lead him down the path of atheism to now declaring that he is agnostic. I am grateful to be reminded that I can (with the help of the Holy Spirit) stand in the gap for my son, unshaken! I am believing and praying that my son will some day see how much God loves him. When that happens, the Lord will have a mighty warrior for His “Corp” indeed! Thanks for the encouragement! Praise God for his faithfullness! His mercies are new every morning!

  355. Steve Golding says:

    Fear all around us finances, job, personal life,what else life is hard but we forget to focus our sites on God. Faith the ability to trust something that’s not visible. We believe in a Good whose not there visibly or is he thru others. Focus on a loving God praise him for his kindness and blessings he is in control so let’s not keep him at arms length.

  356. Connie Bradshaw says:

    I can relate to this teaching and so needed it at this time. My 7 year old grandson only has one kidney, is taking medication for high blood pressure, and is now dealing with a horrible, recurring rash that has the doctor’s looking for answers. They now think it may be an autoimmune disorder and he is seeing a specialist next week. I am afraid and don’t know what to do. I pray I will keep my eyes on Jesus and trust Him to fight this battle for us.

  357. I was so glad to read today’s devotional. Going through a really difficult season of life. Helps me remember to give it all to God. He has provided and I know he will continue. I just seem to forget that at harder times.

  358. One thing I am learning in my walk with the Lord is to keep my eyes on JESUS!
    It doesn’t matter how old our children get, they are still our children and life is still going to happen. Reading about the armies coming to attack brings light to our everyday lives. We have things coming at us from all directions trying to break us, distract us and take us away from where we need to be and who God created us to be. Thank you for sharing your story and reminding me to keep looking upward.

  359. This is such a great article by Sally,the key to Remaining unshaken. Thank you for this Reminder!
    Whatever we are going through in this life the key is always keeping our eyes upon Jesus through the storms of life. HE is always there with us and for us. May we set our mind and keep it set on things above. Also a key part in this story is Jehoshaphat set himself to seek the Lord, was obedient in following what God said to do, praised God , and we see God fighting the battle for Him! God’s word is powerful, may we always run to His word, read, study, and meditate on it to stay strong through the storms of Life! Thanks again Sally for an encouraging article!
    Thanks again Sally for this encouraging article!

  360. I am so shaken right now. I am in the dark and I am afraid. My husband asked for a divorce and I am completely broken. I have been fighting against Satan destroying my family for About a year and a half and I am so tired. I feel like I can’t go on. I don’t know how else to surrender it to god. I pray, I fast, I read the Bible. But it is so hard to remain faithful when I can’t even breathe. I have heard god tell me to wait for him. To just be patient. But I am so fearful. Please pray for my family.

    • Nicole, I do feel for you and am praying. I don’t know why this is going on in your life. And perhaps you feel that God isn’t listening or cares? But, He can be trusted. When my fears overwhelm me, I choose to believe in spite of emotions. You keep praying! And know that you are not forsaken of God. He will never leave you!

  361. Sara Davis says:

    This story is so familiar. Our son-in-law, who is only 44, began having seizures over three years ago. He had just made manager of a bakery/deli at Food City. He also preached, when asked, on the side. A worker at the grocery found him on the floor of the walk-in freezer. He has been to several doctors, specialists, etc. He is in and out of the hospital every three or four weeks. They applied for disability over two years ago and he has been denied twice, at which time he sought out an attorney. He was told both times that if he preached before he still could. Yeah, like every church wants a preacher that can’t drive, could have a seizure at any time in the pulpit, could be in the hospital any Sunday or weekday. I could go on. He would love to be working and providing for his family, but no one is going to hire him. Besides the fact that he has trouble walking and his balance is awful. Now he is dealing with shots in his eyes every two weeks for Diabetic Retinopathy. He can’t see well enough to create, much less deliver, a sermon. Our daughter is the sole income for the family of three. She works in a doctor’s office. Their son is 15 and in band, which is very costly with trips, camp, etc.

  362. I would love to win this book! I battle almost daily with having a blended family! 🙁

  363. Pam Schultz says:

    Thank you, so much, for reminding me that I serve a God who goes before me and fights my battles. I am required to fix my eyes on Him and praise Him for what He is going to accomplish in my life for His glory!

  364. I would love (and need) this book!

  365. Angie Lankford says:

    Great reminders that we all need to hear!

  366. Dora Lenchuk says:

    Live your devotions. I would love to own your book.

  367. Maureen Rodgers says:

    I needed this reminder so much! Thank you,especially, for the prayer.

  368. Always enjoy starting my morning with Proverbs 31 devotions!

  369. This article was just perfect for me and the situation I am going through right now. It really refocused me and made me realize what I have beeb doing was correct and my prayers were correct. Even so, this was exactly what I needed to read today It was God’s answer to my prayers. Thank you for this and I would love receiving a copy of the book Unshaken.

  370. Tricia Roche says:

    This is fantastic. I recently got word that my position is being centralized at work and I am embarking on a new path. It is scary because of financial reasons but I feel God is pushing me in a new direction. It is hard for me to face my anxiety and trust. I am excited to get into this and learn how to trust more.

  371. My greatest fear for now is that my son and his wife will divorce. They have 3 children. I cannot give advice, only listen. But sometimes their reactions to one another grieves me greatly. And I do struggle for peace and rest in the Lord.

  372. Julie clark says:

    I would love to read this book as I have faced some challenges I did not keep my eyes wholly on Him –

  373. Christine Cobb says:

    Though I feel like life is closing in all around me, I will continue to seek Him and trust in His promise to stay by my side. God is good. ❤️

  374. Thanks for the encouragement. It was a good reminder to focus on and trust in God.

  375. Trina Formont says:

    This book sounds like something I need to read at this crossroad in my life. I am in constant worry and try to figure things out on my own. I need to remind myself to lean more on Him and turn it all over to Him to figure out. Thank you for a great read!

  376. Psalm 16:8, “I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” (NIV)

  377. Thank you for this encouragement. Pointing to the fact that the battle belongs to God – not me.

  378. Cherie Dupler says:

    Looks like this would be a worthwhile book to have. Life happens.

  379. I needed to hear this this morning. As I go through financial difficulties I have realized I do not need to have fear! God has always provided what I need and he always answers at the right time!

  380. Such a great reminder of God’s power & mercy & grace. Thank you!

  381. Beautiful devotion. I so needed to hear this today. Would love to win a copy!

  382. Selena Douglass says:

    When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago, I was terrified, envisioning all the things that I miss out on. But then at a women’s retreat, God reminded me that He was there for me, making new paths in my life. The peace I felt was incredible. Yes, treatment was hard, and sometimes I forgot that God was there. But I knew deep in my heart, that He had this. And He still does – I’ve had 2 biopsies since then to check changes in my breast, and both have been fine. God is worthy of all our praise.

  383. In the course of a year I lost my mother, was diagnosed with cancer, had surgery, chemo and radiation. Three weeks after the cancer diagnosis I intuitively learned that my husband of 22 years was having an affair. He chose to leave although it is not what I wanted so I went through the surgery and treatment without him. It has been very hard and lonely. Sometimes I feel it would be easier to give up. The next hurdle is untangling emotionally and legally from him. I can only trust God but I am truly scared!

  384. I struggle with worry all the time. Thank you for the devotion and reminder of God’s faithfulness.

  385. Patricia Shrivastav says:

    Just what I needed today! Thank you for sharing this word!

  386. My greatest fear is that I will fail my family. I won’t do well at getting out from under debts and drag everyone down with me.
    I know this fear is just Satan trying to keep me from moving forward in life.
    Praying right now. Thank for this devotion. It was what I needed to pray and meditate about today.

  387. Your message was great! We need to remember always seek the Lord! Would love reading your book!

  388. Crystal kessler says:

    Really need to to do the unshaken book

  389. Thank you for today’s devotion. Our Heavenly Father always provides us with what we need at the proper time and I needed to read this devotion and accompanying scriptures today. I would love to win/read your book. Blessings to you and your family.

  390. Iris Mitchell says:

    I really needed this devotion today … God is speaking to me through this … The Battle I have been going through has exhausted me and very discouraged .. this us why the Word of God is there for us to show He has not forgotten us …Unshaken is what I need .. Thank you

  391. Margaretann Crowley says:

    Would like the free book..I have a prodigal daughter I’ve been prayin for 17 years…I’m praying for a miracle for,het to trust God and get out of a toxic relationship….She has our 10 year old grandson..I’m believing this is the year she will release all her hurts and give her life to Jesus..Blessings..In His Lap..Margaretann

    • Chelsea Butler says:

      The most comforting feeling in the world is knowing I do not have to be afraid. I have to remind myself of this daily… but I feel it keeps me in close contact with God. At times I forget that fear is Satan’s way of trying to creep in. In the name of my Lord, God, I pray that the fear leaves each of you. I am witnessing God’s work by praying and trusting instead of my old ways of anxiety and worry- Such a wonderful and hopeful experience to witness!

  392. I am continuously blessed by the Proverbs 31 Ministries daily email devotion. I have two grown sons who are not walking with the Lord at this time even though they have both made professions of faith as children. Please pray for them.

  393. Sharon Harapiak says:

    I would love to read this book as we are walking with a friend who has 2 sons that have come out as transgender.

  394. Going through the most difficult time in mylife and the fear could literally stop me in my tracks! I want to put my faith in the Lord to walk before me and help me overcome my fears. I want to feel unshaken!

  395. This devotion was God’s encouragement to me today. Thank you!

  396. Janis Price says:

    Thank you Father!
    Like always, you provide counseling as we study your words. God, help me keep my eyes on you and remain faithful knowing the battle is not mine.
    I ask this in your Sons name, Amen.

  397. Portia Mamothame says:

    I can tell that the book is inspired by the power of the Holy Ghost. It shall bring peace in hearts and wisdon on how to fix our eyes to our creator.

  398. Suzette Ruffa says:

    My greatest fear is being alone. I have been better at giving this to God!

  399. Thank you for the encouraging words!

  400. Great message today, thank you. I’m experiencing a trial and learning to turn to God and listen to Him rather than the advice of man especially those who don’t know the Lord.

  401. This is such a great reminder. When the season of struggle continues longer than you would hope, the cares of the world can easily take over and fear creeps in. God is faithful even when we aren’t.

  402. Unshaken sounds like a book I need in my life!! I am working on shifting my perspective from myself and my worries onto Jesus, who has already won each battle.

  403. This sounds like an amazing book that my adult children and I could use right now.

  404. Great devotional! Playing all my favorite Praise music and making sure that I sing along! XO!

  405. Danette Biggs says:

    I would love to read it!

  406. Such a confirmation. Pray. Pray. PRAY! Thank you.

  407. To God be the glory!

  408. As a math person I am a wired problem solver and struggle so much to focus on God instead of the issue. My daughter is a HS junior and developed unexplained health issues over the last year. She is deteriorating before my very eyes along with her dream of being a college athlete. With her inability to walk, think, and function at times worries me so much. Thank you for reminding me to replace worry with worship. I need to be unshaken!

  409. Tiffany Myers says:

    Our son, once a sponge for Bible verses who would even evangelize to strangers at the gas station in elementary school, has been rejecting church and God since becoming a teenager. Sometimes I practically panic for his future. Today I am reminded that it’s not my battle for his soul. It is the Lord’s battle for my precious son’s soul. yay!

  410. This is so true! Life can so easily cause us to want to hide, but if we remember that God is always with us there isn’t anything we can’t endure. It’s so comforting to be able to read the Bible and see how others responded in their struggles and see how God saved them.

  411. Thanks for this devotion.I liked all of verses mentioned which inspire us to live for the Lord, to not be afraid, to trust in Him, and to cherish each day He gives us. Psalm 16:8 ” I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me.”

  412. Janice Sartorio Bollas says:

    Thank you for your testimony. I just have to keep my eyes on the cross daily I’ve been singing that song which really helps – when we don’t know what to do, I will turn to you, and keep my eyes on the cross, my eyes on the cross!

  413. Thk you. That was so helpful. I asked myself what my biggest fear is- being alone. After helping to care for my elderly mother the last 1 1/2 years, her passing, her house selling, me & my 5 siblings going back to our home states, I realize I struggle with being alone. My husband works 60+ hrs/wk preparing us for retirement & our daughters live several hours away. I must learn to put my whole trust and my heart’s well-being in the hands of the Lord. Thank you for the example of purposing to keep your eyes on Him.

  414. I would love a copy of this book to learn from and then to share with others with this struggle.

  415. Debbie Cardwell says:

    I was touched by today’s devotion. I long to praise God and not give into fear. I have a hard time accepting the fact that I am worthy of his love. Thank you,

  416. Tamara Werner says:

    I signed up for your devotionals after going through your 4 day Easter mailings. I already love it! Thanks so much!

  417. Thank you for your devotions and encouraging scripture. I truly need to turn my worries and fears over to God. I prayed in church yesterday and turned all of my children over to Him. Now I must do my part and keep my eyes and thoughts in Him and worry and fear not.

  418. Thank you for this!
    I have multiple crisis’in my family that has left me overwhelmed & struggling with fear,confusion,disbelief, hurt & pain. This article is Gods perfect timing & was the direction & reminder I needed today. Thank you for the inspiration & blessings this site provides many of us!
    God Bless

  419. I have a dear friend who is going through a really hard time with a medical issue and I would love to share a copy of this book with her. Thanks

  420. Renee Tallman says:

    Thank you for the encouragement. I feel like my world is crumbling around me and I am trying and praying so hard for the peace that only our Lord and Savior JESUS can give me. Thank you.

  421. Laura Rodriguez says:

    This devotion spoke to my spirit today. Thank you for expressing such truth filled words.

  422. Ingrid Kilde says:

    I struggle with anxiety and depression. I have been sick a lot this season as well and have broken ribs coughing so hard and think it’s happened again. It makes it difficult to work and in very alone. Perhaps this book would help me cope.

  423. DIANE PAULSEN says:

  424. Laurie Zajac says:

    I have 5 beautiful gifts from God & at any given time I’m worried about one of them ! I would love to be unshakable at these times when I am aware my faith is being tested !!! Praise God 🙏

  425. Sally Ann Price says:

    Thanks for sharing this great devotion. I bet that was a scary time with you and your family. I will pray for you son. I am glad he is doing better. We have an awesome God. He is with us always. He will never leave us nor forsake us. We should pray to him for everything. He is our Almighty God.

    Hope you had a great Easter. He is risen! Risen indeed.

    Have a wonderful week.

  426. Hi, I have just read your article The Key to remaining unshaken. I can tell you I am on the verge of really not wanting to be here any longer. Your article helped me feel a little better, a little stronger. I am still so very broken. I am a mother of 5 children and have 5 grand children. As my children were growing up and moving out and on with their lives. still a couple at home my husband was in a near fatal car accident. The Trauma still remains. He is doing well, different but well Thanks all be go God. As he is healing my oldest daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a both breast removed and was doing better until she was diagnosed yet again 2 time now breast cancer survivor. Thank again all goes to the Lord. In the mist of this I had thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid removed. UGH. My Mother became unable to take care of herself and moved in for a short time, per my mother’s request. She is now at my sisters house, where she really did not want to go. But I could not continue to take card of her as she was in need of 24 hour care and I am now working a full time job and a part time job to make ends meet as my husband is on disability. So the relationship between my sister and I is not great and she is refusing to let me see my mother. long story. My other sister is off in her own world and could care a less about it. My brother how ever is trying to be there for me. who also was recently sick with cancer. ok I know you are thinking this is a crazy women for real. Yes this is my life and much more I could say. But the bottom line is I am broken my family has all fallen apart. My heart is so broke. I have and am trying to keep my eyes on the lord not my circumstance. It is so hard and I feel as everyone would be so better off with me……………… Sorry for the long email and I hope maybe if I win it could help me to learn how to remain Unshaken by my crazy life ….

  427. Karen L. Christ says:

    Thank you for your honest sharing in “The Key to Remaining Unshaken.” We live in a world that is fast-imploding. We are surrounded by people, places and things that cause us to worry and to fear, and to feel as if there is no solid ground beneath us. Keeping our eyes on Jesus is the only way to maintain our sanity and gain an abiding sense of peace. Thank you for articulating this so well in today’s devotional. It reminds me to keep claiming the promise of John 16:33: “In this world you shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world.” Praise God!

  428. Oh wow! Your devotion was right on target for me today. My daughter has been ill for many years. We had several misdiagnosis before we found out what was really happening with her. Even though we have a diagnosis it doesn’t always bring answers. I have struggled with worry and anxiety over it and my mama heart wants to fix her. I have not been good at turning it over to Jesus. Thank you for the reminder today that the BEST thing I can do is turn my daughter over to her Heavenly Father. Thank you so much for sharing!

  429. Debbie McClary says:

    Thank you for this truth! I am encouraged and strengthened for the future when I remember this and keep my eyes on God.

  430. We, too, have a son who has had grand mal seisures. Though not “Unshaken” we see God’s love and protective care through these moments and rejoice in His presence.

  431. I needed this reminder today! Thank you! I am in a situation where my neighbours knowingly refuse to stop using scented dryer sheets that vent directly to my home that I am severely allergic to and go into anaphylactic shock. I have almost died from it. Not having the money to fight them in court we decided to move and God miraculously provided a new home which we go to in two weeks. But these people continue their assault and the last two days I have been so stressed of not making it through the next two weeks. I needed this reminder today to keep focused on Him and give praise. I’ve already packed my music players so singing it is!

  432. The exact word I needed! Thank you so much!

  433. Michele Bonifanti says:

    I really needed this and would love to receive your book as I have been dealing with anxiety/panic attacks for the past seven months. I have started a new medication and I am praying that helps. I am trying to give my worries right to the Lord anymore and praising Him and praying to Him eases the anxiety somewhat.

  434. Wonderful words of encouragement when it seems the battle is too much. But not for God, who fights the battle and has already gained the victory!
    Thank you for sharing your story.

  435. Amanda Tiersma says:

    As a new mother of two (3 and 2months) my world is rocked right now. I am battling postpartum depression and doing my best to care for my boys, my husband, and myself. There are days when I feel shaken. This devotional encouraged me today and would love to win a copy of “Unshaken” for continued to encouragement to keep my eyes on the Lord in this phase of life that I want to cherish.

  436. Madra Gallegos says:

    I read your devotions every day and it has been an invaluable way to start each day! I have an ensational hunger and thirst for Gods word! This is truly the peace that I have been searching for my whole life:)

  437. When we align ourselves with God, it can be scary when things come along our path and shake us off. This book will be timely to let us face the path and take it unshaken.

  438. Joanna Kearns says:

    PLEASE PICK US WE ARE STILL GOING THROUGH A HORRIBLE SEASON TOO MUCH TO SAY AND THE MORE I TALK ABOUT IT THE MORE UPSET AND DISTRESSED IT GETS US PLEASE HELP US WIN!

  439. Julie Gehman says:

    Great reminder!

  440. Rosa Potter says:

    Thank you so much for these words of encouragement. To remain unshaken in a world that reels and rocks on a daily basis takes the faith of God! Your commentaries help me to stay focused and trust in the One who is truly UNSHAKEN! Thank the Lord Jesus for you and your words of encouragement. Keep on keeping on!

  441. Mom of three says:

    I’ve been shaken by the death of my parents in a car accident this Christmas. I’d like this book to help me find His solid ground again. I appreciate your devotions.

  442. Joanna Kearns says:

    GOES WITH THE PREVIOUS COMMENT

  443. Kristie L Brown says:

    This was a wonderful and eye opening reminder today. I deal on a daily basis with a need to feel in control of things. This always leads to me taking my eyes off the Lord and doing my best to fix things. Now that I have grown in my walk with Christ and am getting better about stopping to pray and hand things over to Him I often wonder how many times have I messed up and taken my way which lead me away from Gods will for my life. I know those choices lead me to where I am now so I am grateful for my deepening relationship with Christ but just sometimes wonder what would my life look like if I had surrendered those choices sooner

  444. Carey Schindel says:

    I would love this book!

  445. Joanna Kearns says:

    testing

  446. Donna Taylor says:

    Today’s devotion deeply touched my heart. After a glorious Easter celebrating our risen Christ, the
    realities of the week are ahead. As I face some uncertainty in undergoing a medical procedure tomorrow,
    I am hanging on to these verses! Fear will not consume me, because God goes before me, already fighting this battle.
    My eyes are fixed on him, praising him for all he has brought me and my family through in the last year!
    Thank you for sharing your story through Unshaken.
    I look forward to reading your book soon.

  447. Daphne Sayed says:

    This is wonderful advice for facing both life and specific problems. No one can add a cubit to their height by worrying. Life so much easier since I learned this last year aged 75.

  448. Paula Davis says:

    I am so thankful for such resources to help us deal with life’s many challenges. God bless you all!

  449. I enjoyed this message of encouragement. Just like prayer can change things and work wonders in a marriage or any other relationship, prayer for children is so instrumental. I believe it not only strengthens your faith and pushes you to rely more on God, but it also allows you to model your faith before others. The book, “Unshaken”, seems like it’d be an awesome resource for parents.

  450. This article reminded me that nothing is too big or overwhelming for God.

  451. Thank you for the reminding me that only I limit God’s power in my life when I trade my focus on God to myself.

  452. Amina B. says:

    I love it! Thank you so much for the reminder. I don’t have to be perfect, have all the answers, or try to do everything in my strength. This dependence on God relieves stress and increase my faith knowing that He’s in control and will take care of me. I know, The Lord is near, so I will not dear, but think about good things. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” 2 Chronicles 20:12b (NIV). I love it! Thanks!

  453. Thank you my Father for this reading this day. Knowing that there are others out there who share my faith and love for You is all so awe inspiring for me. When I read this testimony this morning I completely understood for I too am a mother of a now young man who has struggled with grand mal seizures since birth. We thought he was healed since he had not had a seizure in 20 years. But then it happened again and this time he did die but God’s grace brought him back to us and he is fine. His doctors say it’s cause maybe from extreme stress and a not so good diet. This was the first time I had ever heard of Mom’s In Prayer and I know it was God’s grace that lead me here, thank you Jesus.

  454. Thx for the book if I get it. I could use it at this time. Thank you.

  455. This devotion is very timely for my husband and me. We are in the middle of a very painful situation with our daughter and her family. Unshaken is just what we needed. At almost 70 years we never thought anything like what we are experiencing would happen with one of our children. God has blessed us through this devotion. Keeping our eyes on HIM!

  456. Angela Duffie says:

    I also had grand mal seizure the summer after my senior year in high school. That is a scary feeling for the individual but I can’t even imagine how my parents felt now that I have children and grandchildren. My parents still let me go off to Columbia College that Fall. How they must have prayed for me!!! Now that I am a widow, I am struggling with the why of what happened to my husband after having surgery. Why did God let this happen? I read such inspiring emails on Proverbs 31. I am still struggling but I know God has a plan.
    Thanks for all that you do.

  457. Sashani Brown-Gowdie says:

    Very inspiring in leaving everything to God and totally trusting him with every situation.
    Thank you so much

  458. It never ceases to amaze me how God can put certain people in our paths to guide us in the right direction. Thank you for your article and for the guidance to look to Him first.

  459. sapodaca says:

    I was faced with much opposition. I became discouraged and fearful. But the Lord gave me a scripture: Be calm and be quiet, and watch as I defend you. As I watched the Lord defend me, my heart was quieted and my faith was strengthened.

  460. Thank you so much for this devotion. Only God would know how many times I would need to read this today and how many times He would remind me to keep my eyes on Him. What a blessing this has been to me today

  461. A year ago, my husband began experiencing some medical issues that we could not explain. Even as we consulted doctor after doctor, his symptoms continued to progressively occur more often. Additionally, a back injury from an auto accident over 25 years ago has flared up, requiring surgery. At the same time, our grown daughter has decided that she no longer wants to have anything to do with her father–without any explanation! Add in a fulltime job for me, and I am feeling shaken to my core. My faith is dwindling, bit by bit. I need something to hold on to.

  462. Your Devon helped my to fix my eyes on God as I learned of my 17 year old son’s 3rd speeding ticket which he tried to keep from us and paid himself. I realize that God is in control. The failure to pay that crossed in the mail with his in person cash payment, revealed the incident to me. It also taught him the lesson that God always lets me know when my kids are in trouble and that he was protecting him from another incident with the failure to pay scare. I know God is not finished with my Jacob and that he will complete the work he began in him.

  463. Brianna janelle says:

    This was a wonderful read for my Monday where I am feeling unmotivated and discouraged.

  464. I have failed miserably and have allowed myself to be shaken not one not twice or even 5 times but multiple times that I can’t even count on my fingers or toes!!
    Our family is going thru the worst time of our lives !!
    There is no hope, trust, belief or faith anymore.
    I am feeling like index to take matters into my own hands now and I feel like an in- patient psych ward would actually be kind of comforting with a straight jacket on.
    Your devotional brought tears to my eyes and for the first time they weren’t tears of fear, doubt, worry or anxiety!
    Thank you!

  465. Such a beautiful devotion. Thankful I came across this message on this Monday afternoon.

  466. Shelly Bishop says:

    Thank you for your gracious insight.

  467. Thank you for the encouragement.

  468. Laura Stamer says:

    Just after her high school graduation, my daughter also had grand and mini mal seizures and it was absolutely terrifying. They happened as she woke up in the morning, so I had a lot of anxiety regarding her sleep habits and energy levels. The Lord literally woke me up one night while she was on a missions trip with this scripture…

    “In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe.” Psalm 4:8

  469. Sally’s story is also my family’s story. We are going through things with our adult children that we never thought we’d experience and as a mother and a grandmother, I have a hard time not worrying. There are times when I cannot even pray – I cannot form words – and I fall back on the great name of Jesus.

  470. Thank you for the reminder. I’m stuck looking at the storm instead of my God. Lord please forgive me

  471. Nick Bennett says:

    Hello Sally,
    Thank you for this, my wife and I needed this, praise God. She started having the same seizures when nine months pregnant 9 years ago. Now she takes a medication to control them. We believe she is delivered after so many things God showed us to do, but she still takes the medication because, the truth is, you just never know for sure about seizures and if/when they could come. Mark 9 and Matthew 17 detail the boy with seizures that was delivered from a demon. Can you please contact me and explain how your son was healed and set free of them (after a decade)? Thank you very much and God bless.

  472. Windi Cook says:

    We were an active family with our son, Brandon, that was disabled and twins. Brandon snow skied, water skied, played wheelchair basketball and wheelchair track and field. He did anything any normal kid did! 3 years ago(at the age of 20)he died from an ATV accident while away at college. We were unable to get there fast enough.

    Most days fear causes me to have anxiety to such a level I just break down and fall to pieces! Jesus has brought me this far and I know that he wants to bring me out of this state of mind. I am fearful that I am doing damage to my twins because of my insecurities.

    I read Proverbs 31 daily! I have seen this book advertised in the past. It now has caught my attention once again. I feel GOD wants me to read this! I want to be able to live my life again with joy and also be able to share my testimony and encourage others.

    Thank you for your daily devotions!!

  473. Needed this today

  474. Courtney says:

    I am POSITIVE that I have more than quite a few fears. However, I don’t really allow myself to actually or fully “admit” them to anyone, even myself. I do not allow myself to think about or dwell on them, majority of them anyways, whenever possible. I realize that this is not healthy. Ignoring &/or not admitting & acknowledging them does not make them nonexistent. Is is not dealing with them. It is just hiding them. A way of sweeping them under the rug. I would love to read your new book to learn ways of dealing with these suppressed fears & anxieties & be able to completely hand them over to God.

  475. I would really like to read your book, thank you so much for the gentle reminder that I needed today…and everyday.

  476. I don’t know what the Lord is preparing me for. I only know that He is. Just the thought of Him preparing me for whatever it is, frightens me and brings anxiety. Each day reading Proverbs 31 messages reinforces everything He has been speaking to me in my own time with Him and in His Word. Please pray for me to be courageous, whatever the “it” may be. I am grateful that He already is speaking to me. I am working hard to Not anticipate whatever He is preparing me for. That in itself is difficult, but we’re working on it. How blessed I already am for the messages you precious ladies share. Thank you.

    • Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
      Just from sin and self to cease;
      Just from Jesus simply taking
      Life, and rest, and joy, and peace.

  477. Vonda Bryant says:

    I so NEED to read this book. I am going thru a divorce after being married for 30 years. I appreciate being reminded to keep my eyes on the Lord and to praise him when I sometimes feel like my life is on a merry go round.

  478. Brenda Lindsey says:

    This sounds like a very encouraging and helpful read. I’m sure that many can benefit from it.

  479. Linda G Sears says:

    Thanks for sharing. King Jehoshaphat is one of my favorite persons in the bible. I will keep my eyes on the Lord, for I know that He will always move on my behalf. What a Mighty God we serve! Blessings!

  480. Julie Ruiz says:

    I would love to win the book “Unshaken”. So many people around me have major things going on in their lives and I want to be able to help them in a Godly way.

  481. Brandy Beekman says:

    I want to be unshakeable!

  482. Ruth Le Roux says:

    It helps to hear others are also facing immense medical troubles. Our 2 year old feeds through a tube in her stomach and there are so many days you feel completely alone. Reading your devolution and others comments is a reminder we never alone.

  483. Jennifer Deethardt says:

    So true, that when we avoid jumping in the swirling waters of the panic pool, we remain steady and strong by the Lord’s power. We are battling cancer and His peace has steadied us in so many amazing ways as we surrender this battle to Him.

  484. This is one scripture I needed to hear today…..it is NOT my battle but his…..help Lord.

  485. Suzy Jaffray says:

    Seems to always be easier helping other people go through this! It is a whole different thing when I go through it!

  486. Jessica Ables says:

    I need to read this book! The battle is the Lord’s!

  487. Laura Punke says:

    Thanks for the wonderful messages day after day! God has done amazing work in my life through Proverbs 31 devotionals.

  488. Janice Walker says:

    Thank you for your inspiration and testimony! You made a difference.

  489. Jennifer Palacios says:

    Fear is my battle! I am afraid that I will get hurt again…I’m afraid of the unknown. But, just like it says in Psalm 16:8, “I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” YESSSS!!!! I have to keep my eyes on Him…He will fight my battle so I don’t have to!!

  490. My greatest fear is fear of failure. This puts me off doing things because I’m scared I might fail. One area at present is trying to change my eating habits and start exercising. I am unhappy with the way I look and feel but I am lacking in motivation or perhaps it’s fear that’s holding me back.

  491. Shirley Smith says:

    I feel like The Lord is teaching me, at age 69, how to simply trust Him like a child. My husband has neurological disorders, and cannot relate to the world nor God as we can. Each day is a constant battle for him, and my nerves become frayed. The Holy Spirit is teaching me, moment by moment at times, to have Faith, Trust in Him and Believe upon His words. I feel like I can use ALL the help I can get my hands on, and to find strength to not become so discouraged that I become useless. I have work to do for the Lord, and I want to be able to endure to the end, not only for my husband, myself but especially for the Lord and those He has called me to help take care of.

  492. Robin Parker says:

    I really needed to hear this today. Thank you for all you do.

  493. Michelle says:

    Thank you for this message, Sally. God bless you.

  494. Elaine Segstro says:

    What a powerful message reminding us that the battle is not ours, but is the Lord’s! Oh to rest in this message like King Jehoshaphat!

  495. Nancy E Cutler says:

    Loving these devotionals – everyday is right on. Thank you

  496. Susanne Moore says:

    This encouraged me to rely more fully on God!

  497. Thank you!

  498. I really need to learn how to live “unshaken.” It seems I have let fear push me around my whole life.

  499. Michelle Burgess says:

    Today’s word really spoke to me as I am dealing with a teenagers who has turned his back on God. It’s a daily struggle to keep my eyes on Jesus as we trust for his Salvation.

    Thank you

  500. I would love to get the copy of “Unshaken” I have been battling fears of not being able to provide for my daughter and 2 sons as a single mom. I’m a new real estate agent and I’ve had people reject me from jobs I’ve pursued to help me stay afloat as I build my real estate clientele. I believe that is just the enemy trying to distract me from the will of God. I know that the enemy has already been defeated by God, however I’m still going through trials as keep my eyes on God through it all.

  501. L Espino says:

    I am so grateful I can turn to God!

  502. Jane Kelsall says:

    My husband and I are really struggling right now as we are in week 7 of unemployment after he was laid off from the company he worked for for 27 years. It is hard to stay positive and keep our eyes focused on Jesus when in the midst of uncertainty. Thank you for sharing how God helped you through an extremely difficult time.

  503. Susan Hokama says:

    Today I was driving in the car and telling God I felt unanchored. I was thinking, wait a minute, Jesus is my anchor who holds me fast to God’s heart of love. I don’t have to feel unanchored, that’s a lie from the pit! That one thought lifted me from fear thoughts to peace, God’s peace.

  504. Monique Routhier says:

    Presently I’m going through a situation & would love to read this book to help me

  505. Cheryl wade says:

    So needed this for what is going on in my life. Thank you 😊

  506. Laser focus on God is the only way to remain unshaken!

  507. Kamie Schnuelle says:

    Praising and praying instead of worry!! Thanks for inspiring me.

  508. Grace Crapitto says:

    I would love to read this and be able to have the faith that this family has. What a wonderful book to have to be able to share with families in need of this kind of faith when facing possible death with your children or life changing issues with any family member or close friend.

  509. Yvette Doran says:

    I want to go deeper into learning how to be unshaken. I sometimes feel I’m alone in this battle and but no matter how challenging it maybe i tell myself I can’t quit. I hunger for more strength in my walk with God. I know that this book will be an important intricate in my life.

  510. Sherine Robinson says:

    I am so grateful for the daily devotionals. They are so inspiring and uplifting.

  511. Maneatta says:

    I received my copy of Still Waiting today. I ordered it from Amazon. In the package they didn’t send me a receipt. How do I send you all a copy of the email and where do I send it to? I would like to receive my free gifts for ordering the book.
    Thank you
    Ms. Maneatta Jefferson

  512. I can unfortunately relate to this as my daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 14 which drastically changed her dreams and life plan. She is now 19 and it is for the most part managed, but as you said, you just never know when the next one may come. She is planning on going away to college in the fall which is overwhelming to me. I am also struggling in my marriage in a very big way.
    I love this reminder and encouragement!

  513. Katherine MacDowell says:

    This was one of the most beautiful blogs I’ve read and so timely for my life. I suffer from Systemic Lupus and have suffered multiple strokes along with it. My first stroke damaged my brain that I now suffer from seizures. Today, as I write this, I came home from my pain management doctor and sat on my bed and all I could think about was pain. Then I thought of the Lord and I thought again and again of the Lord and of the goodness of the Lord and His strength. And my brother-in-law just then came downstairs from watching our nephew and we just both happened to need to talk about the Lord because each of us was feeling disenchanted. And the Lord encouraged us. As I read this blog, I was moved to tears first of empathy then of joy in your son’s triumph and the Lord’s love for all of you. And it further reminded me that I don’t have to go through my Lupus alone, I can look to the Lord and praise him, sing, and let go of my own pride and need to control and let Him in. Thank you so very much for this wonderful blog–so very much!

  514. Martha T. says:

    Great reminder!

  515. Joanne Eastwood says:

    I really needed this encouragement todsy. Thank you.

  516. thank you so much for your daily encouragement.

  517. Judy McGuire says:

    I am dealing with severe pain at this time and have been able to pray with gratitude for good doctors and faith that I will be healed. I am enduring and taking the necessary steps with Jesus by my side.

  518. Deidre ' Maston says:

    I enjoyed the devotion today. I was reminded to keep my eyes on The Lord.

  519. love todays quote/verse! We serve the highest of kings. amen

  520. Dean Codner says:

    I and my daughter have been through a great deal of verbal and metal abuse by an ex- wife and her whole family . They have physicaly threaten us and verbally trashed us in social media as well as verbally assalted my friends and home builder . She had falsely accused me of infidelity in our marriage and lied in court an in interrogatories.She had stolen insurance money and moved it to seperate bank ours that she did not disclose in the divorce She had stolen many tools from me that i used as my livelihood to make a living with . She tried yo destroy the house i was getting back before i moved in . She has a Leviathan and Jezebel spirit who had set out to destroy me daughter both. I’ve had to step in between her and my daughter as she got up in her face and threatens her . i desperately need your book . Thank you Dean

  521. Claudia Nafsu says:

    I am a bereavement counselor with St. Joseph Mercy Hospice in Brighton MI. I met with a bereaved today who gave me this website. She has had multiple losses in the last year, she found great comfort in this devotion. Unshaken sounds like a book that would give comfort to the bereaved that I have the honor to work with. They always want an answer: why did my husband have to suffer and die, why has my daughter had three still births when all she wants is a baby. I don’t have the answers to the those questions but keep your eyes on God will give them comfort. I hope you will consider giving one of the books for me to share in the scared work I do.

  522. Una Ireland says:

    I have to remember not to be shaken in my faith but to keep reaching out to Jesus.

  523. TallulahJane says:

    I have had some traumatic parenting issues myself. I am in constant fear for my daughter. I really need this book to help me deal with this stress. Sometimes someone else’s words can really strike a chord when they are based on God’s teaching.

  524. Brittany Bedsole says:

    I would love this book! It would help my husband and I so much!

  525. ASHLEY COLWELL says:

    This book is perfect timing for me.

  526. Sarah Valdivia says:

  529. Nancy Johnson says:

    I SO needed to hear this word today – thank you.

  530. Deb Ritchie says:

    AMEN!

  531. Christine says:

    My greatest fear has been uncertainty of the future. Sometimes I wish God could give me a sneak peak of what lays ahead of me so that I can take proactive steps to get there. I have feared failure and had constant anxiety. I also fear the loss of the ones I love. My dream has always been to give my parents a remarkable life and sometimes I want to fasttract my life just to get to a level of making that a reality. I believe that God is sharpening my character and at the right time all things will fall in place

  534. Elizabeth says:

    Would love to win a copy! I’m in the middle of a hard battle and I feel like this would help me keep my eyes on Christ! Thanks 🙂

  535. Sarah Johnstone says:

    God used these words to touch my heart in His perfect timing. Thank you for sharing your incredible story!

  536. Thank you! Great read & reminder!!

  539. Misty McGlamery says:

    Very moving story!

  540. Stephanie says:

    I desperately needed these words of wisdom. Really needing to read this whole book

  541. Jackie Cantrell says:

    Great devotional today, I shared it so that it may help some friends who are dealing with some hard times.

  542. What a beautiful blog. It touched me to my soul. I’ve dealt with health issues with my 30 year old son since the day he was born and it can be incredibly challenging especially when you see his heartbreak over the things he misses and the things he is limited in doing. I pray for his healing, if not physically at least mentally and I pray for me to have the words to help him.

  543. this devotional reminded me that I have to turn my eyes toward Jesus and AWAY from my situation and my circumstances. I would love to win a copy of this book.

  544. Struggling with a broken engagement. Also a loss of a church family. I would like to win a copy but either way I’m glad I read this I need it right now.

  545. Kay Williams says:

    I’ve been shaken nd lost my home and my self worth. Praying for grace, favor and wisdom as I move forward to establishing myself in another home

  546. Taylor Dunn says:

    Great devotion! Would love to win a copy of the book.

  547. Marthe Hjortshoj says:

    My greatest fear is not having everything in place or enough volunteers for VBS at my church. We usually have between 125-150 kids and require 50-65 adults. It seems like every time I get a yes from a volunteer, I get at least one no. It can feel defeating (especially because I personally love what kids gain in their faith from the week), but I am trying to keep my eyes shifted back to Jesus. He has good plans to help kids know His love!

  548. I’m looking at the loss of my only source of income later this week and this message is exactly what I need to remind me to stay focused on the Lord and know that I am not alone. My financial circumstances may seem grim but God will always provide a way so long as I remain focused on Him. Thank you for this message!

  549. Thank you for sharing your heart Sally. I had to stop reading 3 times because I couldn’t see through the tears. I have dealt with so many of the same things as my son has dealt with grand mal seizures and other health issues. 2 Chronicles 20 has been a lifeline for me…..over and over again I say….’I don’t know what to do Lord, but my eyes are on you”. Searching for Drs and for medical help, getting phone calls to come to the ER, dealing with burns and lacerations, etc…..naturally puts someone on edge. It’s a pins and needles way to live. So we take care of the business of life with a constant dialogue with God…praising Him and confessing….I don’t know what to do Lord but My EYES ARE ON YOU LORD…….. I have dealt with those comments from well meaning people…..and I have had Christian friends tell me that I just need to rebuke the devil and when I get the fear under control, my son’s healing will come speedily. I cannot tell you how long and what a battle it has been to get out from under the suffocating weight of those comments. I Praise God that He has a good and perfect plan for our children, a plan to prosper them…not harm them,.to give them a hope and a future…..He is a good God and loves our sons more than we do. We choose to keep our eyes fixed on HIM. thank you , Sally. your message was so impactful to me….made me feel understood and that I was not so alone.

  550. Jessica Dann says:

    I believe that He can fight all our battles! It’s hard to trust and let go….

  551. Thank you. Going through tough times right now. But I know God is always here guiding me.

  552. Stephanie Todd says:

    My greatest fear is failing my children. I want nothing so much as to see my children become happy, healthy adults who love God and serves Him and others. Good adults who valuably contribute to society. That’s all.

    Oh I could soooo put this book to use in my life! There are so many things that are going on in my family the latest being my Dad being diagnosed with cancer. The unknown shakes me to my core. I constantly have to stop myself from going to the bad places and turn my eyes back to the Lord! I must trust Him!!

  554. Renee lamer says:

  555. Joan Fleetwood says:

    this was an excellent article about keeping my eyes of Jesus to remain unshaken when bad situations arise.

  556. Becky Grossi says:

    Really great verse for those times we need to be reminded Who we belong to!!!

  557. Exactly what I needed today! Thank you!

  558. To keep my eyes in the Lord, no matter what the circumstances. Thanks for the encouragement.

  559. Diana Acres says:

    I am walking out my healing from Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I was devastated when I was diagnosed; but the Lord already knew my brother would be a perfect match. Story after story happened like this down this journey; its teaching me to trust no matter what comes my way. I would love to have this encouraging book to inspire me to keep seeking, keep knocking and I will find. Thank you.

  560. Cindy Penaranda says:

    This was a great message! I have to remember to keep my eyes on
    Jesus always

  561. Janalyn Mitsiopoulos says:

    This is exactly what I needed to hear today. God knew about my struggles with my never ending divorce and the fear I feel. Thank you for sharing your experience. This was very helpful and timely. I’m going to do my part and leave the rest to God. Praying for a good outcome but even if it isn’t good, I know God will never leave me. He will supply all my needs.

  562. God is good – I just need to remember how good He is. Good times, bad times and all the times in between. I am blessed beyond belief!

  563. This has been my struggle in my walk of faith…fear. I really enjoyed today’s devotion it spoke to a definite flaw that I want to know how to correct. I am not in control but my almighty God is! I need to learn to find peace in that.

  564. Cortney Eslinger says:

    So blessed to see this today as my small family is facing a lot coming up in the next year. Being a military family may not always be easy but it’s so worth it fighting for our freedom and our country’s freedom!

  565. This article breathed the very real truths I so deeply needed to read today. Thank God for you and your ministry! I’m a leader in Jenn’s A03 of Oregon at Faith Bible. I’ve got extreme health issues that my husband & son face with me daily like Joshua and Caleb. They’re so strong,& courageous. So often my preparation for my M.I.P. group, the things I’m learning through Moms in Prayer, and my prayer time with my other moms makes the hugest difference. Blessings & “Joy in Jesus”!!

  566. Wow! Perfect timing! This Devo really speaks to me. My situation is similar, but I am the one who started having seizures a month ago. I know God has got this and His plans are so much greater than mine.

  567. My family and I are standing a a fork in the road with many life changing decision ahead. I’m longing to hear God’s voice for peace and watch for his hand of guidance. This devotional was exactly what I needed to hear to calm my anxious heart today. Thank you!

  568. Thank you for this timely word. Thank you Jesus, the Problem solver

  569. Thanks for this encouraging devotional!

  570. I would love savior if Unshaken!!
    Sometimes I doubt God is walking with me because so many bad things have happened.
    I have rehearsal in my faith and tested several years and almost diued but he saved me and sO work hard to prove myself worthy of life,& his Love!!
    I get depressed because I have so many medical problems and limitations.
    Thank you Jesus☝

  571. I have been “shaken” so many times by fear of the unknown. I have had a problem with a coworker for a few years now. And although I try desperately to “be the light” I fail daily. When she attacks me with her words it’s gloats to remain silent. I am constantly reminding myself that I belong to The King. And He doesn’t want me living in fear. The battle is truly His.

  572. Stacy Paul says:

    Thank you for sharing this message a brief glimpse of the story! I would love to win this book and move from fear to unshaken!

  573. Daniele Shick says:

    I have definitely experienced my world changing in a moment and, after looking back at the tough times, see God’s hands at work every step of the way. I want to always be strong, as Jehoshaphat was, even when I have a multitude of armies headed my way. Thank you, God, that you will guide us and fight our battles if we look to you. Thank you for being our rock.

  574. Lisa Mastrantonio says:

    Hi there. My son has been suffering from grand mal seizures and diagnosed with generalized epilepsy. Like you, I was present for the first one and I have never been the same. I worry daily as he is away at college. I pray every day for his safety. Your story today and encouragement helped. Thank you. 🙏🏻 Lisa

  575. I have learned to stand firmly on The Word of God I refuse to be Unshaken and know He will catche me when I fall. For there will always be times I am the valley. I am so grateful to God He loves me!

  576. I really needed this. My husband has to have a biopsy done Wednesday and I have been shaken by this. Hes a cancer survivor and has been in remission since 1999. Please pray for us and his biopsy is clear and whatever is causing his pain and bleeding is healed….

  577. Candye Finigan says:

    It is so HARD to remain “unshaken” when the love of your life, the man God created with you in mind, decides that he no longer wants to be married. Only God’s promise that He would restore my family, and the knowledge that He always keeps His promises, enables me to keep going every day as I wait on His timing. It has been seven years since my husband broke his promise, but I know that God will keep His, so I’m still holding on to it. My faith in Abba Father remains UNSHAKEN!

  578. This was the perfect blog post to read today. Fighting to overcome three years -plus of crippling fear and anxiety over ongoing health issues.

    Would love to win a copy of this book if God wills 🙂 Thank you for sharing either way!

  579. Jennifer Wood says:

    This blog was the perfect reminder & nice gift being that today(4-17-17) is my 35th birthday!!

Please know I am blessed because of your obedience!

    Thank you so much for your encouraging messages very helpful and benefit for me. Thank you so much and God bless you.

  583. Shantell says:

    My worst fear is that I’ll never experience true joy. The joy of friendship, marriage or success. I struggle consistently handing these things that are closest to my heart over to God.

  584. Thank you for these words. They are perfect for where I’m at with my baby who has special needs.

  585. Shannon Porter says:

    I’d love to win a copy.

  586. What an encouraging message! My husband and I are currently struggling with finances, new home, and a new baby. It’s so incredibly difficult sometimes to trust that God has us within His hands when we struggle to make payments on our bills each month. But this devotion was such a great reminder that I need not allow fear to overtake me & grip my heart. Thank you for this word which brings me back to the point of complete surrender & trust in God’s provision for my family 🙂

  587. This book would be amazing to read!

  588. There is such comfort in praising God! Thank you for this reminder to always look to our creator before we do anything on our own.

  589. Would love to read this!

  590. Thank you for the reminder that we need only keep our eyes on the Lord and he shall deliver us! I have been learning to trust Him more everyday and this article is what I needed to hear today! I deal with fear almost everyday, but God has been guiding more and more! I will put all my energy into trusting Him!

  591. Sandra Platt says:

    This would be the right time to win the book. I have been in the hospital 3 times in 6 weeks. The first time I was in ICU for nearly a week. I am in congestive heart failure! I was so afraid at first in ICU because I did not know what year it was, who was President, and so on. But I did remember the name Jesus, and over and over I just whispered His precious name. The fear left! Amen! My memory all came back, and I was released from ICU to a regular room.

  592. Helena NeCaise says:

    This really touched me in what I’m trying to pursue. It reminded me that I need to stop and follow His lead because He is preparing me. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  593. Sara Rector says:

    Thank you so much for this, really helped today.

  597. Love this… exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you for being a blessing to others

  598. I love ❤️ reading your post. I read this earlier this morning and am so glad I saw again , because I wanted to share it with someone that is dear to me .

  599. Oh my…I can so relate. I witnessed my husband have his first seizure in the middle of the night. I have never witnessed something so scary in all my life. It took almost a full year for me to be able to sleep in the bed with him b/c I was so scared. Life has taken many downward turns since then & I have experienced periods of shaking after shaking. I feel as though I havent been on solid ground in FOREVER! Perhaps one day Jesus will finally come to my rescue.

  600. God has gone before us, but He will walk beside us each step of the way.

  601. Erma urias says:

    Thank you for your words of strength and encouragement

  602. Kristy Miller says:

    This was a great reminder and something I talked to my friend about earlier. Thank you for sharing and the book sounds great.

  603. Such a perfect time for this devotional thought and tremendous encouragement. My sister and I are both facing cancer! It had always been my desire to not be shaken or greatly moved from my faith in our amazing and awesome God! Thank you!!

  604. Katherine says:

    Right now, I am going through the hardest point in my life that I have ever experienced. And that’s saying a lot as 10 years ago, people were saying to me that I was going through things that people who were two and three times my age had never experienced. But I am now at an all time low. I’ve been battling depression for over 15 years, but right now, it is beating me. I am battling several medical conditions right now, one of which is fibromyalgia and my doctors are still trying to find a medication that will take care of the unbelievable pain that I am constantly in. I have an unusual metabolism that metabolizes drugs differently from most people so most drugs that work for pain for most people don’t work for me, so in the mean time I am dealing with this debilitating pain and depression as well as other medical problems. I have to work 45 hours a week to keep my family afloat as my husband is in school and we have a 4 year old daughter. I have to take periodical breaks at work to go to the restroom and throw up from all the pain I’m in and then come back to work and push through until the end of my shift. I have a hard time not crying throughout my entire shift, and sometimes don’t succeed and keeping the tears at bay. I spend most of my day wanting to curl up in a ball and cry myself to sleep and hope to never wake up again. Yes, I am being treated for all of this, but none of it is a quick fix, and I know that, and I am doing my best to focus my eyes on Jesus during these hard times, but it’s hard. Whether I receive one of the books or not, which I hope I do, I could use some prayer. Thank you for your time if you read until the end.

  605. Steph L. says:

    Thank you for the words of clarity and encouragement. I look forward to reading this book!

  606. I love reading the words of encouragement everyday. Thank you for sharing the word of God with the masses. We need it!

  607. Stacy McCarty says:

    My fear today was putting my 21 year old daughter on a plane to Zambia. Yes, she was going to serve Jesus there but this flight! All alone and several connections. Thank you for this devotional. God is with her, guiding and protecting her. She is in Him hands.

  608. Terri Duncan says:

    Thank you for this! It came at the right time. My husband just had 2 back to back major surgeries, in which Thursday we found out he has cancer when he had his last surgery on that day. I have surgery this Wednesday from my nerve being so compressed, then took my daughter to ER today and she has growth on her spine. When it rains it pours. I need to keep my eyes on him though, no doubt. God must have a blessing coming since Satan is fighting so hard right now! Thank you guys for this article ❤️❤️

  609. Mary Claire rushin says:

    I love this and needed to read it tonight!!

  610. Tammy Allshouse says:

    I’ve been searching for something. Mother has just been diagnosed Parkinson’s and husband just had a major stroke at age 47. Trying to support two children on one income, make too much for help but not enough to pay bills. But I di believe some how some way God has this.

    • Tammy, I am praying for you as I was in the same boat 7 yrs ago with my husband. Don’t lose hope…He will be with you each step of the way. My husband should not have survived but through God’s healing power a duch rehab he recently went back to work. Pray and reach out for help and more prayer.

  611. Elizabeth says:

    I loved this! I’ve been struggling with my direction. I keep being told “be still”, and I want so bad to be moved. Sometimes God needs us to pause so He can protect us, and continue unfolding the blessings He has planned. It’s hard. Today’s words are just another perfectly timed reminder that just because we don’t see Him working doesn’t mean He’s not. His Blessonga are revealed when we listen.

  612. Thank you for your message. Would love to read this book.

  613. Elysia jackson says:

    I needed this today! Thank you!

  614. Shannon moffitt says:

  621. Michelle McNew says:

    I’m really struggling financially right now and I’m really stressed because of it. I try to remind myself daily that God is in control & everything will work out, but fear is really challenging my faith. This book would be great to read as encouragement to be Unshaken

  622. My husband is going through some health issues..this was the perfect devotion..God is good..

  626. Thank you for reminding me of His faithfulness

  627. When I was diagnosed with an autoimmune problem three years ago, I knew right away I had to fix my eyes on the Lord. In January, my numbers were almost normal. I praise him every day! I will not be shaken.

  628. This is so timely. When I am feeling so alone the right verse always comes to me one way or another. Thanks

  629. Lift my eyes, lord.

  630. Tasha Beck says:

  637. Sheila Zavorka says:

  638. My greatest fear is that this world will consume my two beautiful young adult children. The enemy is so alive in this culture and false teachings are becoming the norm. That scares me. My battle plan is prayer. Prayer is powerful. And when I don’t have the words I listen to praise music. My prayer music.
    Thank you for the testimony and scriptures. God bless.

We have a faithful Father that’s for sure! (:

  655. I suffer from depression and anxiety and desperately need to be unshaken.

  656. Cheryl Ricks says:

    I’ve just had a medical procedure done and I’m so fearful of what ‘could be’. I only have God to turn to quell my fears. Lord, help me to step out in faith. Your literature would help me stay focused on God.

  657. I would love to read this book and then I would pass it on to my husband, two sons and other family members and friends. We are all struggling with fear. It’s different for each of us but boy I’d love to learn some strategies to feel unshaken even in times of confusion. I would love to learn where to turn to in bible to hear jesus’ words of comfort and encouragement. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.

  658. Elena Diaz-Orta says:

    My daughter has been really sick for about a year and a half, The Lord sent a lady in our lives that guided us to her recuperation and healing. Today after so much suffering she is 99% better. Although I try to keep my eyes on the Lord sometimes I just have so much fear that it will return… Thank you and blessings….

  659. Rizaldy V. Torralba says:

    I’m blessed reading your article The Key to Remaining Unshaken because I relate to it due to my disobedience to God and had backslide to the lures of this world. I have struggles coping up to come out with my transgressions and iniquities that caused my bad fate. For now, I’m trying to go back to Christ and I think your book will help me a lot to the journey of my recovery in Christ Jesus.
    God bless… thank you.

  660. Thank you for this! Would love to win this for my dear friend…and then borrow when she’s done! 😉

  661. Everyday is an unshaken day. As a soon to be 48 mom of 2 boys, 8 and almost 3, days are very challenging. I have felt days of being a prisoner to anxiety and depression. Thanks to P31 and especially First5, I am learning to pull myself together but I’m still hungry and thirsty for more of the Lord’s word and grace. I woyld love a copy of this book and being part of the unshaken journey.

  662. LaNitha Weaver says:

    Our family has undergone battles against 3 armies on many occasions. And likewise ulitmately we had no choice but to surrender to God fighting our battles! In addition I rebuke satan in the name of Jesus because Jesus has ALL AUTHORITY and has already one our battles when He rose from death! Satan will not have our families but we need to speak that out into the universe!

  663. Would love to read this book!!

  664. It is so important to focus on the Lord in the midst of trials and suffering. Satan seeks to waylay us and bring alarm and fear into our lives. But we have a God who fights our battles and brings peace in the midst of conflicts. I am trusting the Lord to intervene in my life as I surrender my will to Him and trust Him to bring victory out of an impossible situation.

  665. Susan Williams says:

    Thank you so much for the spiritual lesson with an example that showed a way to apply the truth in our daily lives. Each one of us face situations in our lives that we can either react in our flesh or with fear; or we can choose to turn our eyes to the Lord and seek His perfect answers.

  666. What a great devotional. I would love to win this book. Thank you

  667. This message has come at the right time. Thanks for the encouragement.

  670. I would love to read your book.

  671. Cheryl Rooker says:

    Thank you for this devotion. I would love Unshaken!!!

  672. This hits home being a mom of boys. Health issues can be so uncertain and scary! We have family and friends battling illnesses that doctors can not pinpoint or diagnose. It can be so discouraging and can feel as though prayers are not being heard or answered, although I KNOW God is present and listening. Unshaken sounds like a great book. Thanks for your article!

  673. Heather Gallogly says:

    Would love to read this book! Thanks for opportunity!

  674. We all have faced different types of Fear. The Lord has always brought me through the trial. One of my mothers famous pass down quotes is “if God brings you to it, he will bring you through it!” I have started a verse book as a quick resource to help speak life, protection, fruitful words, armour, speaking to the giants I come across in mine and my children’s journeys and many others. I see my strength growing as I continually pursue his word and I hunger and seek for his peace and joy even in the face of and amidst the storm.
    It would be a blessing to have this resource to nurture my Holy Spirit to be unshakeable.

    Thank you for the devotion and your daily resources.

  675. I need help to learn to become unshak n.

  676. Hello! This devotional is so good, and reminds me of the lessons that God has been teaching me here of late. I recently listened to a series of sermons based on the miracles in the gospel of John, and that speaker said this very same thing. Each miracle showcases a different way that Jesus is the answer – to our greatest need, in our suffering, in our tragedy, etc. Thanks for reminding me again of this theme in my life! God is so good!

  677. Christine Downey says:

    Thank you for this post. I needed this today. I’m scared ..I’m in a custody battle for my grandson with oldest daughter. This going to get worse before its over. I stand loose either way. This something God has been working with me on to stand firm eyes on him no matter how big the storm or the waves may get. Thank you for the scriptures…I would love a copy of your book

  678. My whole life has been dealt with episodes of abuse from different men in my family and men not in my family. I try to get on top, but then I get hit once again by more hurts and struggle that lead me into depression and emotional eating. I try over and over and but continually struggle. I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ, but have a hard time having a close relationship with Him. Have a fear that He too will let me down. I would love to have the devotional to be once and forever free from being shaken to unshaken. Please keep me in your prayers. Pamela

  679. It sounds like a good book.

  680. Thank you for the opportunity. I would love to win one of the copies of Unshaken. God Bless!

  681. Proverbs 31 seems to always pop up with great words from the Lord at the right time! Thank you.

  686. Stephanie says:

    I need thee, oh, I need thee. Every hour I need thee.

  687. Thank you for sharing the words God has given you. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of Unshaken. I have friend I would like to share it with who is going through a very difficult time with her child. Prayers for their family. .. God knows.

  688. I seldom open my facebook but tonight I did. You have no idea how much this was meant for me to read. Life hits us from all sides and often it is easy to lose sight of our loving and wonderful God. For some time I have been dealing with issues with one of my sons, and at a loss as to what, if anything I can do. I keep relearning over and over that God is in all of it and I need to have more faith and definitely keep my eyes on him. I do give thanks every day for all that I have in my life and tonight so thankful that I received the message…Shirl

  689. Sheri Magill says:

    I needed to hear that God is bigger than anything I am facing. I need to seek God above all else. Thank you for the encouraging words

  690. Melissa M says:

    This story has has been a huge inspiration to me and was told to me in my very first counseling session that turned my eyes to God in an extremely difficult time! So amazing to know that our God will fight for us! Thank you for sharing this message! I’m sure the book is amazing!

  691. Kim Shumake says:

    Wow,this is what I need.! The last year has been the worst roller coaster ever. It’s tough keeping fear at bay.

  692. Melody Henni says:

    SO good 😊

  693. This devotion spoke to my heart, although we are experiencing different things with our sons. I believe the fear is the same. It feels so out of control but, the greater one is in control! I have to remind myself often that God is always watching over us and our children. This is were our true faith in the Lord lies when we lay our children at His feet and pray for guidance and wisdom.

  694. Diane Johnson says:

    Sounds good….
    👌

  695. Would love to win the book and be Unshaken when things don’t go the way I wanted them too. Thank you.

    This reminds me of what happened to my son weeks ago – I was crying in desperation and calling out to God for help. He delivered me from my anxiety.

  696. Haley Keith says:

    Our Father goes to unimaginable lengths to reach us. His love is relentless.

  697. Thank for this devotion.

  698. Thank you for this devotion. I have been struggling so much with my health conditions and especially the daily chronic pain. This reminds me to rely on Gods strength and will.

  699. Tracy Snyder says:

    Thank you for this devotional! It was exactly what I needed to hear today!

  700. I usually read this devotion in the morning before I get dressed for the day. However, the morning after the holiday meant rushing just to get out the door and to school on time. It was a very full, busy Monday. As I headed upstairs to the bedroom, I checked my email one last time for the night. It’s a habit that I need to stop doing. In my experience, it is usually better to deal with things in the daylight than at 11pm but I checked anyway. For the past 5 years, I have had to hire new people for my staff. It’s tiresome to have to start over every time a new face joins our team. They have all been great people, I’m just tired of the work it takes to re-establish so many things every year. My director and I aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on the hiring process which is just adding to my frustration. As I got all worked up tonight about his most recent email, I just felt the darkness of anger, disappointment, doubt, and uncertainty take over. I felt a nudge to read today’s devotional, and God did not disappoint. I absolutely needed to hear the key to staying Unshaken. And that is just the right word I needed to fend off this darkness. I need to trust that God has a plan, and He is before me in all of it. I can’t thank you enough for letting God work through your words. Blessings!

  701. In self examination today I realized that instead of surrendering to God as my Father in obedience, I have been trying to control His responses to my circumstances…
    Oh what a revelation this is… How sorry I am to confess this sin! How grateful that my eyes are open and now I see!
    Thank you Father for your patience, mercy, grace and love!

  702. Mare Hindall says:

    My fear is stepping out of my comfort zone. I’ve moved forward with God’s help since my husband passed away 29 months ago. I need to just focus on God for where he might lead me.

  703. My son is undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia. I am holding on to His promises and truth. I have to keep praying to keep my eyes Him and the battle is His. We are blessed with prayer warriors from our church and community.

  704. I absolutely loved the encouragement you provided in this passage. I will try and be more open and believing.

  705. Judy heath says:

    I’m going thru an Dr surgeries right now. I have two cancers, one breast and one lung , the lobe is out, and breast surgery is in two weeks followed by six weeks of radiation and then chemo. I’ve been struggling with the enormity of this..and this devotion put it all into words for me; stop fofussing on it, and focuses on God. It’s his fight. This gave me peace, which was as desperately needed. Thank you

  706. Denise Vaden says:

    This was an AWESOME read and so well written. Amazing how God sends us just what we need. THAN YOU for sharing this.

  707. Leah Cronican says:

    Thank you, I needed this heavy reminder. Amen.

  708. Thank you so much for this. My newborn is currently going through this and as hard as it is some days I have to remind myself to stay focused. This was very helpful and really hit home for me.

  709. Abigail Haverdink says:

    It’s my junior year and AP test and SATs are all coming up and I need this reminder to get me through this tonight season that so many many times seems overwhelming and I need to remember that God is always there.

  710. Thank you – what’s great reminder to focus of God as He is bigger and more powerful than the challenges and circumstances we face.

  711. Thank you for this message! With our previously completely healthy daughter hospitalized twice since December, my husband being laid off from his job of 14-years and me going back to work, without our God, we would have been devastated. God has provided and continues to bless us and I am more thankful than I can say for Him carrying us through.

  712. Becky Lorenzo says:

    I greatly enjoyed this message! Thank you so much for sharing your story! I have been struggling with anxiety and depression for over 20 years. Only recently (past 5 years) has it become debilitating and physically painful. Literally God is the only remedy that has worked to truly begin the healing process. I would love to read this book to continue my journey!

  713. Thanks for sharing your story! It’s so hard to “let go and let God” sometimes. Your devotional was just what I needed today! God bless you and your family!

  714. Loved this article my brother has epilepsy so this really struck a cord. This is one of my all time favorite passages of scripture. The Lord will fight for you! You need only to “Be still and KNOW  (not just in my mind but also in your heart) that HE is God.”

  715. I would love a copy of the book!

  716. Ann Krouse says:

    Love this article!

  717. Jennifer Melvin says:

    Thank You Lord for all Proverbs 31 Women. Your ministry has helped me heal, believe, hope. My God continue to bless this ministry 😇🙏😇🙏

  718. Although I was a day late reading this, it was God’s perfect timing. So needed this today.

  719. Hunter Malin says:

    Move your eyes from the problem to the ultimate problem solver. Love that. #TrustHim

  720. Svetlana says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this devotion! Those words refreshed my sight and heart just in the right time. Peace and joy comes with the reminding that I do not have to fight the battle by myself, God is fighting for me!
    Thank you again! That is precious!

  721. Elias Akpeji says:

    I’m truly inspired by this message to face my present medical case with courage and deep hope in Christ for a divine healing.

  722. Christina Cunningham says:

    Thanks for the redirecting for my thoughts. I am facing several life changing choices at work and feel over my head at times.

  723. Kimberly says:

    This message is speaking directly to my heart. Thank you!

  724. Melinda Knox says:

    Thank you so much for sharing you and your families story. I admire your and strive to have your faith. My husband and I have been separated for 3 months and I am struggling with what to do. I keep making it my problem instead of trusting and giving it to God.

  725. Cheryl Reeves says:

    I love this word of encouragement. It is very timely as I am going through a season of shaking now that is testing my faith. Thank you and looking forward to reading your book.

  726. Gaylene Grant says:

    Thank you just what I needed just now

  727. My greatest fear is losing someone I love. I can look to God and trust that He knows when everyones time on this Earth is done and that we will our day be reunited in Heaven.

  728. Lacee Burton says:

    A very timely message for my life! Thank you for sharing.

  729. Thank you for this message. I am an EMT and many times in shaken after a rough call. This particular blog came at just the right time. I will not be shaken and focus on praising Jesus!

  730. Michelle says:

    I look forward to these devotions every morning. It is like a life group via email. The encouraging messages and heartfelt guidance provide gentle reminders that God is in control. Thank you for what you do Proverbs 31 Ministry.

  731. I feel it is good that my shoes have shoestrings on them to keep them on my feet….I am sure they would be shaken off by now had they not been tied on. I long to walk this journey of life and not feel shaken and to let God be my anchor no matter what comes against me. I am hoping to be a winner of your book!!!

  732. Tiffany McGuirk says:

    I certainly needed to read this today. It is amazing that God leaves little hints in our path. Sometimes it is hard to let go and keep our eyes focused on God, but we can stand strong knowing that God always has our best interest in store.

  733. I need help with letting go & trusting God!

  734. Tina Edenfield says:

    I feel God has called me to minister through music. I sing in church however I feel I’m destined for a larger crowd. I’ve grown comfortable in my very small country church and do wrestle the fear of stepping out into the world. There are auditions coming up for opening acts for a concert that is put on in my hometown every year. I feel called to go but I’m struggling with trusting completely.

  735. Missy Dice says:

    There’s always a CROSS before a RESURRECTION….Jesus has been through it already and is faithful to see us through, eyes on Him! Thanks for sharing your story, it’s a huge part God uses to help me stay focused and unshaken through my trials.

  736. Carol-Anne Middleton says:

    I certainly needed to read this today to remind me of where to set my eyes. My family has been in the midst of turmoil for some time now. I have 2 daughters each enduring their own family struggles. One daughter with epilepsy who has my grandson with autism – she is in the midst of depression. And one daughter separated last year because her husband did the unthinkable to my granddaughter. It is difficult not to focus on all of this and be anxious and fearful. Today’s message reminded me God is ultimately in control and if I keep my eyes on him I will find peace. Oh but it can be hard. I would love a copy of this book to help me with this. Thank you.

  737. Such a true & powerful word. This truth was hammered home to me in 2012-13. My husband stopped breathing, spent 3 months in hospital & came home with a tracheostomy & on a home ventilator. We were homeschooling 2 highschoolers. I was scared, suicidal, overwhelmed. I learned to practice gratitude & praise, to refocus on Jesus. It works. At times I still struggle but I now know what to do.

  738. Jennifer says:

    What a pointed and clear reminder to trust our Lord with any situation. Thank you for reminding us of this truth in the devotion today!

  739. A message well needed as our pregnancy center is going through some trials and testing. Thank you!

  740. Megan Tonderum says:

    I’d love a copy of this book to help me delve into focusing on God and always putting Him first.

  741. Thank you for these words of wisdom.

  742. Constantly needing reminders to keep my eyes on him and my mind off “worries”! With a group of rambunctious first graders and a family of my own at home, as well as a husband facing increasing health issues, remaining “Unshaken” is a constant struggle!

  743. Patricia falcon says:

    It seems like a book I need to read. Healing is something I need at this point in my life.

  744. Kim Leiva says:

    Often it is so easy to forget to keep focused on the lord and NOT on the trials you are going through. I need this book. Thanks

  745. Claudia Prince says:

    I WOULD LIKE THE BOOK TO SHARE WITH OUR INTERCESSORS GROUP AND TO LET THEM KNOW THAT IF WE TAKE EVERYTHING TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HE WILL TURN OUR BROKEN INTO VICTORY AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO FACE ANY CRISIS

  746. Nichole Hall says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy. Fingers crossed! 🙂
