Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.
September 2, 2019
As many prepare for the storm I sit and ponder as I have truly not taken any precautionary actions. I was saying to myself you have to be ready but truly I must say I have such a huge sense of peace that it has not allowed me to do anything. I hear the Lord saying you have placed your trust in me.
I had always struggled with trust. Honestly, I’m going to be extremely vulnerable with this. It was always so hard for me. I was always betrayed so trusting someone felt almost impossible. I have had to learn in my walk with Christ that God longs for us to trust Him with every inch of our soul.
Say it…. that’s hard. I get it. It’s hard but it’s possible. It will require that you die to self. God does not want us to be anxious about anything but to always have peace knowing He has us in the palm of His hand.
Philippians 4:6-7Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
This takes me to the story in the Bible where Jesus is looking at his disciples and testing Peter. I know someone may read this and say but why would God allow these storms to take place and bring destruction. Can I say we are truly living in the end times where God is on a mission searching for the ones that won’t be moved and won’t allow their faith to be shaken.
As I understand we will all face a storm. We will face major tragedies I take it this way Jesus is walking thru each city, town to search out who will stand in Faith trusting that He is with us. The word says if my people would humble themselves…
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Why would His word say this… because that is exactly what He wants from each of us. Instead of being anxious call out to me says the Lord. His voice will come and He will bring clarity and peace in how you are to deal with the storm that may be coming in your direction.
He wants us to hear His desires so we can know more of His Glory. It’s 10:30pm on Tuesday September 3rd 2019 and I’m finishing this blog realizing that truly it’s Gods mercy over us and His Glory has been manifested.
Thank You Father you have heard the cries of your chosen ones.
