But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. – Acts 20:24 NKJV

We do not know what life will bring, we sure do not know what other surprises 2020 will deliver and neither did Paul in Acts 20.   He was hated and many sought to kill him and at the very least, shut him up.  He boldly and courageously said, “But none of these things move me!”  To paraphrase the remainder of the verse 24, Paul said, “I don’t count my life important to me.  I just want to finish the race with joy.  I want to finish my ministry by testifying about the grace of God.”  As I have told you before, my word from the Lord for 2020 is RESOLUTE.  This is just a reminder and some really good advice from Paul:

Bad news comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Craziness comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Disappointment comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Storms come.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Lacks comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Pain comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Sickness comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Co-Vid 19 comes.
    “But none of these things move me.”
Cancer comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Death comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Distraction comes.
“But none of these things move me.”
Interruption comes
  “But none of these things move me.”
Uncertainty comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”
Shaking comes.
   “But none of these things move me.”

 I enCOURAGE you to let nothing move you.  Our lives are just a vapor.  Finish your race with joy. Share the good news of Jesus and his grace.  Be resolute and boldly say to everything that tries to move you, “but none of these things move me.”

I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved. – Psalm 16:8 KJV 

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. – Psalm 55:22 KJV
