Most of us are either in a storm, just coming out of a storm, or headed into a storm (that maybe we don’t know about yet). There are no exemptions. We all have battles to face and things to overcome. No matter how good of a person you are or how many good deeds you do for others — storms will come. It’s apart of life. The good thing about it, though, is that all storms eventually pass. Many times the length of our storms depends on what we focus on during the storm. I often think about the incident of Peter asking to walk on the water with Jesus (Matthew 14:22-33). Peter literally walked on water until the moment he took his eyes off Jesus and began to focus on the wind and waves. He became afraid and began to sink. Fear has the ability to paralyze us if it goes unchecked. I know this firsthand as I’ve experienced it in my own life.
I recently had a debt that had been lingering over my head the past several years. The debt was close to $20,000 and I did not know how I was going to pay it off. I will admit I was stressed about it and had gotten into fear over it. I finally got to a place where I rolled the care of it on the Lord. I was expecting God to do something in my situation but I wasn’t sure how or what He was going to do. Long story short, I received a letter from my debtors stating that the debt was cancelled and I owed them nothing. Praise God! There was another time when I had a $30,000 balance for my college tuition that had to be paid in order for me to graduate. (Mind you, this is 5 days before graduation). I called my brother, Robert “Moe” Moore, to pray for me. I’ll never forget he said, “The Lord said Be still and know that I am God. God is going to give you a miracle in the computer system. Call the school back in 30 minutes.” I received the word and called the university back 30 minutes later. My voice was a little shaky but I asked how much my balance was and she said, “Ms. Mayer, you have no balance. The tuition is showing up as paid and you’re all set for graduation!”
There are more stories I can share about supernatural miracles but time will not allow. I am sure that you can also testify of things that only a good God can do. If I don’t know anything else I know that God is good, even when bad things happen. Some times He’ll walk you through storms. Other times He’ll carry you through when you don’t have the strength to stand. Whatever storm you may be facing right now, Be still and know that He is God. Don’t be afraid. This too will pass.
May peace and prosperity be with you always.
