As we battle Hurricane Harvey in my home City of Houston, Texas. Some of you are also facing spiritual storms in your lives. Hunker down, dear friends. Do not let your hearts be troubled by the things you see around you. Look only to Jesus, the Lord of the storm. He is our peace, the bridge over troubled water.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27, ESV.
Surely the Lord’s power is enough to save you. He can hear you when you ask Him for help.
Isaiah 59:1, NCV.
You will experience peace when you seek God’s presence. Even in the midst of a storm, you will not be afraid. With your eyes, you will see the pandemonium but you will be UNTOUCHED. God has the final say for your life. God is on your side in every single storm you face.
Speak to your storm. You have the word of God in you, speak up and the enemy of your soul will flee. The Lord will see you through! What seems like the breaking of you may be your making. Trust God in the midst of the storm, He will see you through.
Where Do You Find Safety and Shelter?
In trouble times we find safety and shelter in God. We are not orphans, we are children of God.
For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me. Psalm 27:5, NASB.
Our children are having the time of their lives; playing, eating and making so much noise. They are not worried about Hurricane Harvey, one bit. You know why? Because they know they are not alone by themselves. They know that their parents would do anything to protect them. Don’t forget whose you are, dear friends. You are gods; you are all children of the Most High. Psalms 82:6, NCV
