Peace in the midst of a storm
Storms surround us, some we cause, others we are thrown into. Today was a really interesting day. It was pouring and raining all day, in fact in front of our door and where the car was parked were deep puddles. This afternoon, I was finally able to get to my devotions and I was reading as I was feeding the baby but He kept interrupting me. I decided to do them a little later while I was eating. Later I turned back to the passage I thought I had been on to read the following.
Psalms 93:1-5 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
Since it was "flooding" outside this got my attention. I love where it says "the LORD on high is mightier then the noise of many waters." I love how God is stronger and more powerful then ANYTHING we can and will face. Friends, He is our peace in the midst of the storm. When a tornado rips apart your family or your life, HANG IN THERE! We have peace that God is in control. Later I was also reading Psalms 91:4 "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler." I just feel so loved and protected!
I stumbled onto this picture Peace in the midst of a storm while writing this blog today. If you look closely or clink on the link above you will see something really beautiful. Take the time!
Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
God is in control, RELAX!!! ...and rejoice in the present
