Speak to the Storm
November 4, 2020
24 "Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
25 "The disciples went and woke him, saying, 'Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!'"
Words can have a powerful impact in your life. It can bring you up out of desperate situations, and give you the strength to be an overcomer.
Testimony: At this moment, many of my friends living in Honduras, Central America are facing a Category 5 hurricane that is engulfing the entire country. The amount of rain that has fallen so far has washed away houses, and it’s seeking to destroy them.
We can all bear witness to the devastation that rain and wind like this can cause. This is not the first time that they have been subject to these kind of violent storms. Some of you reading this today have been confronted with other kinds of storms in your lives, and one word from God can break those rocky places into pieces to encourage you to face another day.
When a storm suddenly comes up with out warning, and your are faced with another opportunity filled with disappointments, how do you respond to it? Jesus gave us the answer. While the disciples woke up Jesus out of fear, Jesus responded with words to turn the situation around. He asked them why they were so afraid. Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it became completely calm.
Thank You, Father, for hearing us when we pray. Let Your word be like as a fire, like a hammer, as it breaks into pieces the rocks before us as we speak to the storms saying “STORM BE STILL.” You instruct us to be like Christ, and give us an anointing to speak Your words with boldness so we can speak to the waves that are overcoming us. So we say to the storms by faith Be Still! In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
