There are three positions that saints can take when it concerns God, the devil and things of this world and we must understand these so as to be able to survive these days. God wants to have us and desires that we are unmoved by the devil and things.
1)Saints that are unmoveable for the devil and things
This is the positive position to take. When an unmoveable object collides with an irresistible entity, one will lose its identity. Paul said in Acts 20:20-24
24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
That is the kind of saint that will survive these last days- neither the devil nor situations nor circumstances can shift them, they simply have made up their minds.
2)Saints that have become unmoveable for God
These are negatively unmoveable saints. They have made up their mind on how they want to serve God; no one can change their minds from that. There are some Christians that have decided that anything that involves serving God outside of Sundays is a sin to them. When you become unmoveable for God, the devil will break you. The bible says in Pro 29:1, “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” You don’t want to become unmoveable for God. Some people have even cut the Holy Ghost out of their plans. These are the kind of saints that refuse correction and training.
3)Saints that are moveable by things
The bible says in 1Timothy 4:1, “...that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” Seduction here refers to anything that lures you away from God and the things of God. Some will depart and stop being Christians. Some will stop spiritual exercises, they will stop coming to church, reading the bible, evangelising etc. You must not be this kind of saint.
PRAYER: Lord, help me not to be moveable by the things of this world. I choose to embrace your instructions, your shaping and your corrective hand, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
