For in him we live and move and have our being. (Acts 17:28A)
If you look up the definition of the word move it is to go in a specified direction or manner; change position. Some other words that are similar to move are to go, walk, proceed, progress, or advance.
Knowing the defintion of the word move completely changes the context of this verse. It's in HIM alone that we walk, progress and advance. God is not far from us! He intended that we would seek Him and reach out to Him for strength to get through everything that comes our way.
Notice though that He did say move! In order to move and honor the callings + task God gives us, we have to be willing to move and press into Him. That's why being healthy physically and mentally is so important! This allows us to have the physical and mental capacity to press into Him and seek out His strength. Remember- he never promised it would be easy but it will be worth it!
My prayer is that God uses these short devotionals to encourage and challenge you.
