At 3 am, we were awakened by a fierce wind that sounded like it would blow us away. As usual, God placed a word in my mind to chew on, and at three this morning, the word was “tempest,” which is a windstorm. As encouragement for you today, though the enemy will come at you hard, understand that the LORD is not against you; therefore, deliverance is yours. The wrath of God that the Bible often speaks of is against the enemies of the LORD. Though it may feel like tribulation, we should not worry because he loves and protects us, and we have the promise of eternal life. It is our enemies who will see the thrust of God's vengeance. He chose us, we accepted his offer to enjoy his presence for eternity, and he is true to his word; on that we can count.
Keep your eyes on Jesus, and he will give you courage as you watch worldly events unfold.
They will fight against you, but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, declares the LORD, to deliver you.” Jeremiah 1:19
When the tempest passes, the wicked is no more, but the righteous is established forever. Proverbs 10:25
looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. Hebrews 12:2-3
