Bringer and calmer of the storms

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭107:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters, They see the works of the Lord, And His wonders in the deep. For He commands and raises the stormy wind, Which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, They go down again to the depths; Their soul melts because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, So that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭107:23-31‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Bringer and calmer of the storms

The Lord God is sovereign. The Lord God is good. His mercy endures forever.

One of the hard realities of having an almighty God, is the need to acknowledge that He is in control of everything. Just as He calms the storm, He is also the one who raises the stormy wind.

There are those who like to believe that God would never do such thing, that He is one who only brings good things. I remember during the troubles of these last few years, there were those who could not believe that the Lord had brought all that we endured. The Lord uses trials to reveal himself to us and in us, those of us who are born again followers of Jesus.

The trials of life are a revealer of souls, for in the midst of travail, our true faith is revealed.

“Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?””
Matthew 8:23-27 NKJV

The storms of life reveal the depth of our faith, for it is the moments of desperation that resort to following what ewe truly believe. Those that have faith in God, run to Him, seeking Him in prayer and the word. Those who do not, run to other solutions, opting for political methods, movements, and the counsel of men.

We are entering a storm. I tell you the truth, the Lord has brought all the mayhem that we have and will experience, for He is sovereign. He is preparing the earth for its redemption, as even now He is setting things into motion that culminate in His final return and the completed destruction of the Harlot.

He is orchestrating the earthly forces in opposition, like cold and warm fronts, setting the stage for a great storm that will sweep through the world. We are seeing the maturation of the Harlot and her New World Order, and the formation of Team Antichrist who is establishing his coming kingdom.

Brothers and sisters, let us rejoice and declare that the Lord is good, that His mercy endures forever. The evil one is using many deceptions to take our eyes off the Lord. The devil is causing us to mislay our focus, creating a massive blind spot where we do not perceive the Harlot and her many machinations.

We attribute all to the coming Antichrist, when in reality he destroys the Harlot, causing us to think he is Jesus. We will believe that the Antichrist has been defeated, when it was Harlot meeting her end and the man of lawlessness is beginning his reign.

“The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭18:15-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Because of our blindness this we are led astray, seeking after things we think are of God, but actually of the flesh. We find ourselves without anchor, for we have hitched ourselves to unsecured buoys. Let is rely on the sure and steady anchor that is Jesus, the One who hold us steady, and the One who is the bringer and calmer of the storm.

Like all storms, this one will pass. We will stand in a new world, one where the Son is always shining, and where everything will be made new. There will be no more storms.

Let us be faithful to go out and tell others of this great time to come, for there are many adrift in these perilous times, as they are without an anchor. They need to know the One who calms the storms.

“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.””
Revelation 21:1-5 NKJV

Have a fabulous Friday!

  1. My dad was released from the hospital today with a pretty clean bill of health. Thanks so much for your prayers! I think he is going to take a week or two off before going back to work at the project house.
