Be Immovable



Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord knowing that your labor is not in vain 

—1 Corinthians 15:58



There is an attitude you need if you want to be successful in what God has called you to do. It is found in 1 Corinthians 15:58. If you look at the lives of successful people, you will see that they all share this same attitude. Without it, you will not succeed. God who calls you equips you with His power. But you bring this attitude to the table to see the work accomplished. You must be “immovable.”  


The word “immovable” in this verse is the Greek word “ametakinetos”. It has several meanings. It means not easily excited or shaken. It describes someone or something unchangeable and predictable. It refers to someone with a strong and unyielding character. This word reveals someone or something solid, stable, and constant. This is not an unpredictable “on or off” kind of person. Someone with this attitude is solid, secure, confident, grounded, proven, fixed, anchored, unwavering, enduring, and steadfast.


When you step out in faith to do something new, there will always be hindrances that get in your way. If you aren’t determined to be stronger than the problems against you, you will eventually give up. That is why the word “immovable” in your attitude is so important. Anyone who wants to be successful in whatever they do must learn to be constant, stable, steadfast, and unyielding to the challenges that come. 


When God has called you to do something, you have to cultivate this kind of immovable attitude because Satan will attempt to distract you. The enemy does this to anyone God calls to complete His purpose. He will use the negative opinions of others, financial problems, hostile circumstances, discouragement, and many other things to distract you. That is why you have to make up your mind to be fixed, rooted, grounded, anchored, and unwavering in your commitment to accomplish the work God has given you.


Have a non-negotiable attitude. Be immovable and steadfast in the place, plan, and purpose where God has called you. Make the rock-solid decision that you will be resolute and determined. Stand unyielding in your resolve to see God’s purpose completed with excellence in your life. Realize there will always be obstacles that get in the way. Ask the Lord to help you stay stronger than any problem that comes and to help you maintain an attitude that says, “I’m not moving! I know my labor is not in vain!  This promise is going to come true!”


 If you are going to be successful, you must be constant, dependable, and unbending in the face of challenges. Yield only to God's leading and power but be immovable and unyielding in the purpose He has given you


“Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise” (Hebrews 10:35-36).


Are you confident, consistent, and steadfast in what God has given you?  Being consistent and steadfast in purpose is key to being immovable.  The Holy Spirit equips you. Your efforts in His power are not in vain. You shall receive His promise.
