Do not look to your own hands to make your way. Do not look to your own understanding to make your way. Do not look to your advantages, your capital, your resources, your assets to make your own way. For in this day I am drawing a line in the sand, and dividing between the wheat and the chaff. And in this division you will see all you possess has been given you by me. As you see and understand what I am shaking you will see and understand all good things have come from me, not the weak and incompetent idols in which you trust (1).
For I am greater than all your idols. And though you recognize this and understand this in your conscious mind, there is a gap of realization within your heart. And this gap in realization is the very reason I am shaking you today, to awaken your understanding, to sharpen and refocus your perception and perspective. For I am the source. I am before all things, and in me all things are held together. In understanding this truth you will no longer look to your idols for security, provision, or protection but will look to me. And in this realization you will be liberated from the oppression and deception of your idols, for your idols are your captors (2).
Your idols are not your friends, but will continue to hinder you, oppress you, restrain you, and deceive you. Though you think they are good, your idols are not good, but will lead you to your own death and destruction. It is with this truth in mind I am shaking you this day, to awaken your perspective so you will see and know the truth, and so the truth will set you free. You will come to know this truth, and abide with me in perfect love, casting out all fear (3).
So do not avoid, nor resist, my hands that is shaking your life. For even though your future may seem unknown and uncertain, I am shaking all things that can be shaken, and am awakening greater understanding of who I am as a result. And as you embrace the greater understanding of who I am, you will experience greater love, greater peace, and greater satisfaction in all areas of your life, for these are my plans for you in all things (4).
