Life is all about storms, tests, trials and tribulations! Either you need to be suiting up in your Armor of God to prepare for a storm, you are in the midst of a storm, or coming out of a storm! No matter what stage of the storm you are in, just know that God has your back point blank period! 1) I know for myself and 2) because in Isaiah 41:13 it says “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Do you see that, he is the LORD YOUR GOD and he is there every step of the way!
When you know without a shadow of a doubt that God has your back, you learn how to praise him thru it ALL THE GOOD BAD AND THE UGLY! See God does not put us thru storms to take us out, he takes us thru storns to draw closer to him, fear less, and strengthen our faith! He wants us to walk by faith not by sight and know that we will wave the victory flag in the end, give him all of the glory and share our stories!
Just recently I was not sure of the next steps at my job because I was a contractor. The program I was on was coming to an end and our team didn’t know what the next steps would be and honestly, some of the team started to panic publicly! I can’t even lie the enemy definitely tried it but as soon as I felt him coming I redirected my thoughts by affirming: Lord you brought me here and I know you will not let me go out like that! See I know you closed that last door and opened this one. Mid week the enemy tried it again and had me thinking about well what if this is my last week, I have so much I need to do before the end of 2017 and that would throw a monkey wrench in everything. Shortly after I fell prey to the enemies trickery, GOD SHOWED UP AND SHOWED OUT!! I received an email from HR stating that they wanted to meet with me the very next day about being converted to a permanent employee!🙌🙌🙌💃💃💃I immediately gave GOD ALL OF THE GLORY!! It was nothing but my heavenly father telling me, I did not create you to fear or worry and I may not come when you want me to, but I am always right on time my child!
I said all of that to say, when the enemy creeps in, God swoops in and and pull you right out of the storm by showing you he is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!! God hears, knows and sees what you are going thru and will never leave or forsake you! I am now coming out of a storm as we speak, but thru each and every storm I am learning to lean on God because he is the only answer! Just know that he is there with you and help is always the way!
