And there ariseth a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the boat, insomuch that the boat was filling up. And Christ was below deck asleep and the disciples awoke him, saying Teacher, carest thou not that we perish? And he awoke, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” Mark 4:37-39

There have been many times Satan whispered, “There is no need to try, For there’s no end of sorrow, there’s no hope by and by” But I know Thou art with me, and tomorrow I’ll rise, at a place in my life, where the storms have never darken the skies. So untill the storm passes over, till the thunder sounds no more till the clouds roll forever from the sky Hold me fast, and let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand.” (Gaither Vocal Band, Til The Storm Passes By)

Remember our God is all knowing, all powerful and Omnipresence “Unlike the idols of ancient cultures or the mythical gods of Greek and Roman culture, God is not limited to one altar, one temple or one geographic area. God reveals Himself in His word as being everywhere. God was present as Lord in all creation (Ps 139:7-12), and there is no escaping Him.” (John Funk)

So we must ask ourselves Where can I go from His Spirit? Or where can I flee from His presence? Ps 139:7 (NKJV) So if that is the case why not “stand in the hollow of His hand until the storm passes by. My friends He knows when the storm will pass and he knows how long we will last “No temptation [or storm, regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word. He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].” 1 Cor 10:13 (AMP) These are promises in God’s word my friends not some “cunningly devised fables,” or fairy tales conjured up from the mind of mother goose. God must become real to us. His guiding hand that was pierced for our salvation must become real to us. Remember “there is a warfare in which every soul must engage who would have the crown of life. Inch by inch the overcomer must fight the good fight of faith, using the weapons of God’s word [until the storm passes]. We must meet the foe with, “It is written.” [We must also] keep the armory well supplied with, “It is written.” In this way he must meet the advances of the enemy, and educate and train the soul for the still more severe attacks of the foe [as we remain safe in the hands of Christ until the storm passes]. Truth, the word of God, faith and righteousness, and the hope of salvation, must be the armor of the successful warrior, and his eyes must be anointed to be keen and sensitive to detect the devices of the enemy.” [Until we hear Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.] (Ellen G. White, God’s Word Our Assurance)
