I Am He who has power over all things. I Am He in which you also claim great faith. Grace and forgiveness I extend, but also My power for peace that lives within you. Are you My follower? Then you have been given a reassurance that all will work for your good. Why then do you fear? Even the most treacherous way is safe within My hand. You may desire a smooth place, but My providence has much more for he who hears My call, and follows into the storm. The blessings of life are not the counterfeit comfort of this world. They are given from above in many a tattered wrapper, and in many cases with pain and difficulty that is unseen and misunderstood. My Word promises [that] all things work together for good to those who obey in the purpose and call set before them. A great orchestra of events play all about you, and its melody is beyond the world and desires of men. Each note cares for My people, and even the most misunderstood measure plays together in the perfect symphony for those who love Me. Worry not My child. Your fear is misplaced. I own the storm. My Peace is with you in every torrent. Be still. I AM with you.
Mark 4:39 (ESV)- And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Bottom Line: If we are Christ-followers, following Him in all we do, even the storms of business, the challenges of difficult employees, unfair or uncaring employers, making payroll, or just trying to make that important customer happy, these are all storms that the Lord stands right beside us as we go through them. You don’t have to be in church to feel his presence; call on His name in whatever challenge faces you this week. Ask Him for the peace and wisdom that only He can bring. It is in these difficult times, the storms of life, that His Word can work in you.
