And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:39 KJV)
Have you ever seen a hurricane or tornado stay around forever? No! They always pass.
It's a few minutes after midnight, Eastern Standard Time, as I write. God wouldn't allow me to sleep until I send out this word to you - Storms Always Pass!
Over the 25 years that God has speared my life, I've followed the weatherman from the point the storm was discovered, through to the point the storm was passing, then after the storm passed.
In every case, I've NEVER seen the storm stay around, It ALWAYS passed.
This may probably be a dark, gloomy, scary time in your life and you may be definitely afraid to face your tomorrow, or even wonder if you'll get past this week. This was the very same case with the passengers on the ship in which Jesus was taking a nap as a storm was passing. They were downright scared.
When Jesus was found sleeping peacefully during such a treacherous storm, they awoke him and questioned his actions. I like what Jesus did. He didn't wake up all fussy and angry at them. Mark says, And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. (Mark 4:39 KJV)
After Jesus spoke, the situation changed. The storm passed. Things were back to normal again
Marital Problems? Financial Woes? Wayward Children? Job Issues? Health Burdens? Something else? Your Storm will pass too.
Friend, as I sit here and type, I honestly feel your burden. I don't know what it is directly, but my heart feels for you. Weather the storm! Learn as you take shelter under the wings of God. Very soon, Jesus will utter the phrase he spoke in the book of Mark over your life.
Peace Be Still!
When he does, you'll know for sure that your storm would have passed and it'll be time to rebuild and succeed!
The Calm is Coming. May Jesus Keep You Safe As Your Storm Passes By.
