“The sea has risen over Babylon; she is covered with its turbulent waves,” Jeremiah 51:42.
In the midst of a storm things can seem chaotic and crazy. And doesn’t it seem that as fast as we blink our eyes we can so easily find ourselves in the midst of a storm? I want to encourage the PEOPLE of GOD right now with a precious Word for your heart and for your spirits.
Often on the way to our divine destiny we expect smooth sailing as we land into the port of God’s promises for us. But the Lord would have us and some of you to know and for some to be reminded that often before great seasons and doors of opportunity present themselves often they are preceded by seemingly crushing trials.
My wife, family, and I have been living from this very place as we have obeyed God to move into full time ministry and we have chosen to believe God to provide for our every need and to push us further into our destiny as He has laid the path before us. And some of you have been living through this same season. You’ve obeyed God. You are living with expectation on what the Lord is going to do and also fulfill in your lives and ministries. And yet you find yourselves in the midst of a storm, or in a deep valley place, and often it seems to contradict the spoken word of God over your lives.
Jesus spent 40 days and nights in the wilderness but when He came out it was in the POWER of the Spirit. For some this word maybe for you in this time and season. You are well on your way to stepping DEEPER into the PURPOSES of God but it seems your lives are like a ship being tossed to and fro on the waves of adversity.
Take heart my beloved brothers and sisters and remember to TRUST Him in the TURBULENCE. Often the pathway to your destiny is filled with difficulty. The Word of the Lord to you today, is TRUST HIM!
