No need to "spin"

Did you know that the earth spins/rotates on its axis as it rotates around the sun - each day? Now that's what I call a double spin and yet we don't spin. Amazing isn't it? I was discussing this with another lady who just found this out and we were talking about the sheer awesomeness of God.

We went on to say that it's only because God is in control and stable that we don't spin as the earth spins - then this scripture  dropped in my heart:
Psalm 125: 1-2 "Everyone who trusts the LORD is like Mount Zion that cannot be shaken and will stand forever. Just as Jerusalem is protected by mountains on every side, the LORD protects his people by holding them in his arms now and forever." (CEV) God's plan is that we do not spin even if things are spinning (i.e. not going as preferred) around us...once we remain in His arms.

I looked up some other related scriptures to demonstrate that God does not want us to spin - we're only secure and stable in Him...if/when we're in Him. When we are in Him, we will be able to confidently say like David did: "I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved" (Psalm 16:8 - Amplified, italics mine)

We must also know and say with certainty that: "God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas, Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning]. (Psalm 46: 1-5 - Amplified, italics mine)

If you do not want to be moved in spinning circumstances, "cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail). (Psalm 55:22 - Amplified)

As the earth continues to spin, as it definitely will, my prayer is that we will all be partakers of the above and following verses:
1PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who fears (reveres and worships) the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments. 2His [spiritual] offspring shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3Prosperity and welfare are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. 4Light arises in the darkness for the upright, gracious, compassionate, and just [who are in right standing with God]. 5It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice. 6He will not be moved forever; the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright, in right standing with God) shall be in everlasting remembrance. 
(Psalm 112: 1- 6 - Amplified, italics mine)
I invite you to join me in my plan not to spin:
"I will lift up my eyes to the hills [around Jerusalem, to sacred Mount Zion and Mount Moriah]--From whence shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip or to be moved; He Who keeps you will not slumber."
(Psalm 121: 1- 3 - Amplified, italics mine)

No need to spin - let's stay in the stable Hands of He Who spins the world and we'll be just fine.
