0401munkacsyI have always heard the ground at the foot of thee cross is level, And the best definition I could find for level was equality and in the context of our salvation we all get there equally through the blood of Christ. And if we believe in that blood we must also believe that through that blood we are save. Through that blood when the storm is raging and we don’t hear His voice or feel His Spirit and we cry out to the Master “the tempest is raging in our life! And the billows are tossing high! The sky is overshadowed with blackness, no shelter or help is nigh; Do you even care that we perish?

How can you just lie asleep when each moment of our life, is so madly threatening a grave in the angry deep? And my friends it is at that moment the winds and the waves obey His will, and that still small voice, the Spirit of God Himself says, “Peace, be still!” My friends, God loves us so much that He died to save us from the storm whether demons, principalities, or flesh and blood.

If we believe and endure, every situation of our life obeys the will of the Master, the one why created the heavens and the earth. But we cannot lose imgresfocus of our goal, life eternal, “for [the one who calmed that raging sea] knows the plans [He has] for you [and I. That is a promise my friends and the] Lord’s, “plan is to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give you and I hope and a future [right in the middle of that storm]” Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)

As Christians who are seeking to be in God’s kingdom. God sometimes allow those storms of our life to strengthen us and keep our focus on Calvary. So we must look to the eagle another one of God’s creatures and understand how he handles the storm. As the storm approaches, long before it breaks. The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come and that my friends is when we need to study more than ever God’s word.

In addition, we are praying without ceasing for deliverance. And like the eagle, when the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. So As the storm rages we are soaring above it. The eagle or ourselves do not escape the storm. img_0246we simply use the storm to lift us higher.

We rise on the winds that bring the storm because “He will cover [us] with His pinions, And under His wings [all of God’s children] may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. [We] will not be afraid of the terror by night or of the arrow that flies by day; Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.

A thousand may fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand, But it shall not approach you [or I.]” Ps 91:1-4 (NASB) My friends now focus on those last words in that text “But it shall not approach” us and as we are studying and praying and fasting in the midst of our storm, remember God’s promise the “storm will not approach us” if we are under His wings.
