God bless you,
This morning I want to encourage that whatever storm your in it won’t be for long if God is in it. You see you can’t be stressed and still at the same time. If your stressed you can’t pin yourself to a seat you maybe walking around with your hands on your head asking yourself how am I going to deal with this situation. But when you are still it gives God the opportunity to work. It gives Him the opportunity to point you in the right direction.
In Psalm 46:10 (NIV) He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Now in the (MSG) version it is written like this:
Attention, all! See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth, Bans war from pole to pole, breaks all the weapons across his knee. “Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.”
Now you see that God is exalted above everything. He has the control of every storm, war that breaks out.
You see Peter was in the boat when He saw Jesus walking towards the boat on water. Peter said: Master if that is you let me come to You. Peter stepped out the boat and begun walking but as soon he start panicking at the same time he begun sinking. So you see when you are still and you know it is God’s doing everything is going to be fine. But when you start panicking you will start sinking in your own stress and panic. It cause you to loose sight of what really matters.
You see if you have an compass and you are spinning around without having the time to stand still it can’t give you an exact location because your moving to fast. You are going everywhere but anywhere. Today I will tell you leave it up to God, say God you told me to be still in middle of this storm, You are the God above all nations, You hold my future in the palm of Your hands, help me to walk over the water instead of drowning into the water. You can do it. God is always there, always one step ahead of you. You can never surprise Him but he will always surprise you!
With loving regards,
