You Shall Not Be Moved

"A snake will keep twitching even after you kill it. Does not matter how terrible the snake looks's still dead."
Do not be moved or afraid of a dead snake. After all, it's dead. I know it may look weird twitching after it has been killed's still dead. You shall not be moved! I'm sure the snake may startle you upon your approach's still dead. You shall not be moved! Yes the scary motives and loud rattle or noise may try to get you off track and cause you to walk on the other side of the road for a little while's still dead. You shall not be moved! Sure the implications of danger and fake gestures may look real's all fake. You shall not be moved! Many replicas of authenticity will be displayed's all fake. You shall not be moved! Here are some passages of scripture to encourage you to stand still in faith...
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:3
Let no temptation take hold on you, but such as is human. And God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that which you are able: but will make also with temptation issue, that you may be able to bear it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
For she shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be anxious in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:8
Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid of them! The LORD your God will go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you.
In this passage, Moses was speaking to the children of Israel. He encouraged them to follow Joshua's leadership as he would not complete the journey with them to the Promised Land. Moses always knew that God would be with them even though they faced many obstacles and danger. Once again, God's revelation gave the Israelites another glimpse of hope and promise and they were able to keep moving forward.
If we, as children of God, would keep our minds focused on heavenly promises instead of earthly problems, we'd all have less worries, sleepless nights and restless days. God IS the source for everything we need. If God promised it, He will deliver therefore, when you see a dead snake twitching, don't be afraid -- YOU shall not be moved!!!
