1 Corinthians 15:58 (NET)So then, dear brothers and sisters, be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Sophia had a very disturbing dream thrice. The summary of the dream was that the enemy was trying to move her away from her place of glory and push her into a place of shame. At this same period, she felt she was no longer as close as she used to be to the Lord. It became clear to her that there was a shaking and the devil wanted her to be moved.
Being moved is a metaphor used in scripture for an undesired relocation from a place of God-ordained glory to a place of shame. In Psalms 125:1, we see that they that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion which cannot be removed.
From today’s Bible verse, we can see that one way to ensure that we are not moved is by being outstanding in the work of the Lord. The devil will try all methods to make our faith waver and cause us to be moved, but for those who trust in the Lord, they would be as mount Zion that cannot be moved. One sure sign that a believer truly trusts in the Lord is that he would serve the Lord. As a believer, you must be able to identify ways in which you are actively serving the Lord.
Many of God’s promises are activated through service. A very popular promise in Isaiah 54:19(that says no weapon formed against you shall prosper) is actually to those who serve the Lord. This promise ensures that curses (which is a form of spiritual judgment) never find fruition in the lives of God’s servants.
Go into today remembering that if you abound in the service of the Lord, no devil can move you away from your place of ordained glory.
Prayer Confession: I am serving the Lord and growing from glory to glory. Hallelujah!
