It is a wonderful thing to belong to God. Once you are on His side, you are more than a conqueror. Isaiah 43:2 declares “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; Neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. As a child of God, there will always be waters to pass through. As the beloved of God, there will be fire to walk through. The devil will always set traps on the way of the righteous. The afflictions of the righteous will be many but God will deliver him from all of them – Psalms 37:19. Fear not. Be steadfast. Always abound in the work of the Master. He will take over your battles. He will take care of the mountains and giants on the way. He has done it before. He will do it again. Your case will not be an exception for Him. If God is on your side, you have nothing to fear. Stay calm and rest in the Lord. He will suspend the natural effect of water and demonstrate his awesome power in your situation.
Is your faith going through a fiery test? Has the enemy come against you like a flood, to unseat and swallow you up? Take heart! Because God is with you, you will successfully come through. Elisha sat quietly in his house even when the king of Samaria tried to arrest him. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego stood face to face with king Nebuchadnezzar and told him they would rather enter his fire than obey him and burn in God’s eternal hell fire. God went ahead of them and turned the heat around. He confounded the enemy and made His children champions.
Jesus was in the boat when Satan began to raise waves to capsize it. While his disciples panicked, thinking death was imminent, he slept soundly. Do not let one problem generate further problems. That is, do not let that situation of lack or temporary joblessness or childlessness lead you into hypertension or break up your home! Trust and rest in Jesus. Be Full of the Holy Ghost. There is light at the end o the tunnel. The devil cannot overcome your God. No weapon formed by hell against you will prosper. Rest in Jesus. Let Satan’s moves amount to nothing.
You must remain a friend of God if you want Him to calm the storms of your life. He will not fight for His enemy. Your ways must please Him. Hear the testimony of Daniel in Daniel 6:21 – 22 – “Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever. My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocence was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt. Daniel prevailed because he was in the will of God. No wrong was found in him. He had a good report with God and man. Like Daniel you must make holiness and righteousness your watchword. You must develop a lifestyle of purity. You must be set aside for God alone. You must hate sin and flee from its slightest appearance. You must not tolerate and encourage sin. Run from anything and everything that will bring reproach to the name of the Lord. Walk in the Lord and He will take care of every storm on your way. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Be encouraged. Jesus is on you side. God bless you.
