I will be stable in the midst of the storm.
When it seems that you are engulfed and you don’t know where to turn–don’t turn!
I AM right here. I never left and I never will.
“Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to thee, when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I; for thou art my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.” Psalms 61:1-3
“He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly moved.” Psalms 62:2
I want you to stay steady when all is chaotic around you, for you are not to take orders from the press around you. Rather, stand firm–give no place; for your place is resting in Me in the midst of the storm.
Face your greatest fear and say–peace, be still.
“And a great storm of wind arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, do you not care if we perish?’ And he awoke and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be still!’ And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, ‘Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?’ And they were filled with awe, and said to one another, ‘Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?'” Mark 4:37-41
For if your perception of that storm has changed, then you are no longer in faith and you have relinquished your authority to fear.
Have no fear!
Gather up your faith again–hear My Word and speak to the storm to be still.
I remind you that if you step out of love, you leave an open door for fear to enter. Perfect love casts out fear–
- Check your heart
- Get back into love
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and he who fears is not perfected in love.” I John 4:18
Cast out the fear and move on. You’ll find the storms will change right quickly if you check your heart right from the start; it is your weather forecaster.
Clear skies ahead–sunny instead; that’s what love brings; that’s what a clear heart sings—
Sunny skies ahead!
“Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.'” Mark 11:23-26
“‘Every one then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.'” Matthew 7:24-25
“Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” I Corinthians 13:4-7
“For you shall go out in joy, and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12
