The storms of life and ministry are certain. “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.” John 16:33. In most storms, there is a clash between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. If you yield to the hand of God, your breakthrough is certain.
Our Lord, Jesus, is the Master of the storm. He has the last word on your storm and setback. God rules! Years ago, on my way to Atlanta, Georgia, to join the rescue movement (which meant I would be arrested for sitting in front of an abortion mill), the Holy Spirit gave me three phrases:
You are like a sheep led to the slaughter.
You have grace for the day.God rules: You are not in the devil’s hands.
You are in My hands!
There is an end to your storm! Your day of adversity will turn into a day of prosperity. The bitter thing will become sweet. The rain and thunder of your storm will stop, and the sun will shine again. At some desperate moment, the Master of your storm will rise up in your sinking boat and say, “Peace be still!” The raging winds will cease, or run out of breath, and your sea will become calm.
I love you & yours,
