And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them. Luke 24:11
We must see that which is happening around us with spiritual eyes, so we understand what God wants us to do, for such things are necessary to release our blessing. It is paradoxical to think that something which came to destabilize, it can bless us. Although it may seem nonsense, it does make sense to Him.
This happens because many times we get comfortable and lose all initiative to do or take on new things. We get to spiritual stagnation, which affects God’s plans, for we were created to subdue the earth and rule over it. He gave us authority over all things so his Kingdom will advance.
It is unbelievable that, although we have the delegated authority and the power in his name to turn the earth over and put it under our feet, we do not understand it. So, we prefer to keep looking for someone to blame for our situation.
That is why, when situations affect us, let us see is if it is God who wants to awaken us from lethargy, which allows us to do nothing. That is why He causes those shakings, for us to be proactive and always have a plan and a goal to fulfill.
