October 25th – Threatened

Above the heavens I Am, streaming always in all directions, without beginning or end. I hear all, and see. No shift of the wind is not fully visible and known. There is a great panic of My people – desperation instead of My peace, for they know not their God. As a child screams for fear of the shadow, or frets in deepest turmoil for loss of a toy, so My people lament, for they know not whom they worship in scale of what they fear. I Am not of slumber, nor of distance. My strength does not wane, and My Word does not fail. He who peers through the keyhole cannot see the home, and he who will not explore, will only know what passes before him. I stand at the door and knock, that I would enter and be known as, I Am. You seek little the Truth, but chase much the wisdom of the world. Fed only with the folly of man, the man of God cannot know the fullness present with him, waiting to be revealed.  The entertained receive little of the greatness of their adoption, but those who hunger and thirst shall be filled, their fruit great, and fear relieved. I Am above the threat – greater. Search to know Me that you would walk in power over threat, and others too, in My peace.

Acts 9 (ESV) – But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him.

Bottom Line: It is easy to become anxious when problems mount. A fine day can go awry with a single call from the boss. One customer issue can put us in turmoil for months. What is the reaction of the Godly, compared to the rest of the world? If we know who our God really is, our reactions will be much different than the world’s. A big God brings big faith and big power to a situation. If our view of God is too small, our problems look too large.  What are you dealing with? Is your default fear or faith? We have a great, big God. If it does not seem that way, seek to know Him better. Soon, you will bring His peace in the storm to others.
