Even in my Storm...

SCRIPTURE

Psalms 46:10

 

10: "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"

 

DEVOTION

From the very first time that you take a swimming lesson, the first thing that the instructor always says is “stay calm, if you begin to drown, the more you fight the quicker you sink”. You know that this instructor has taken the courses, and is filled with all the wisdom that there is to know about swimming, but oftentimes then not when you are beginning to drown, your first instinct is to panic. Isn’t it funny that life has become our pool, and we are all that student who knows what their teacher taught them is the right thing to do, but panic and worry just seems to overtake us anyway. When life's storms are raging heavily and you can’t seem to see any hope, it is so easy to “drown”- fall into all that is wrong and terrible in our lives, and we forget who our Father is. God said that he would NEVER leave us nor forsake us, yet we tend to forget that even in our darkest moments he is right there. You must find peace and comfort in the Lord, and know that his timing is on time. We may not understand why the things that happen to us happen, but the Lord does, and we must put all of our trust in him, and be still. We serve the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, and with all that the Lord does, he never forgets about you. Your storm may rage, but remember that the most peaceful part of a storm is in the middle of it. We must walk through these hardships and remember that there is something greater that lies beyond our trials. Isaiah Chapter 26 Verse 3 3: You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Now, you are never going to be sent into battle without full armor. The Lord will be with you and grant you that peace but you must trust in him and know that he is God and he will provide and be there for you. There is always work that must be done to grow your relationship with the Lord, but with that relationship comes enlightenment, knowledge, and understanding of the Lord and his grace.



PRAYER

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you as humbly as we know how, asking you for perfect peace Lord. Asking that you bless us with calmness as we walk through life, and Lord we just ask you for understanding and strength. Lord, we thank you for all that you have done and all that you will do. We ask all these things in your son Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
 

Our storm is not forever, but our God and his love is. Even in your storm, you can find peace and push forward.


But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. James 3:17-18

INSPIRATION

Jesus, a direct descendant of God, has the highest claim to speak for God. Jesus, son of God, who suffered, died, and was buried for us, was also the mouth of God, the one who spoke to us, who, with His flesh and blood, guided us to ecstasy and joy. Jesus gives us hope, even when everything around us seems to be falling apart. We are guaranteed that God began a work within us and that He will bring it to completion. The trials come to make us strong for the journey and to see if we can keep the faith.


Be encouraged! God will not be mocked. He will keep his promises. We must stand on his promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us. We must believe that “…all things works for the good of those who love the Lord, who have been called according to HIS purpose …” (Romans 8:28). This does not mean all things will be good but it reassures us that God will use the evil/bad/sad/wicked things to ultimately bring about good. The work may take us through somethings, but it will be completed by the will of God.


So, let us not faint or lose hope but “...tie a knot and hang in there…” with Jesus as our hope and God as the keeper of His promise. Hang on to every word of God; hiding it in our hearts to use as needed every day.

PRAYER

Lord, guide us into Your heart. Hand over Your hand and take us, Your members in heart and spirit, and guide us into Your soul. God, take us over and enter into our hearts and spirits. When we are weary, remind us that you are always near. Let us feel your present as we go through our trials and tribulations. Fill us up with Your joy. Amen.

The Divine Prayer Line

A Prayer for Health:

Thank you for all you have done in our lives. I come to you asking you to protect our physical bodies from harm’s way. Lord, we know there is so much going on in our world today and sickness is overtaking our population. I ask that you cover us and keep us safe from illnesses that have the potential to burden so many lives. I ask that you heal those who have already been affected by COVID 19 and any other illnesses that work against your plan for us to be healthy and strong. Grant them peace and health, Lord. We are asking for full recovery for our Sorors and anyone else who is dealing with illnesses, both physical and mental. I thank you that it is all already done.

 

In your sons Jesus name, we pray, Amen.

   

A Prayer of Wealth:
Wealth is not always defined by material possessions, but often by peace, joy, and love. Today I pray for wealth that comes from peace of mind, joy in the moment, and love from all our love ones. Grant us the wealth of knowing you have provided us with our daily bread and that you are with us in every situation. We thank you for your overflowing cup of mercy and grace as well as the blessing of material things.
A Prayer for Healing:
We thank you for allowing us the opportunity to come together. We know our sisterhood is founded on Christian principles so we wanted to take a moment and pray for total health and healing throughout the land and within our sisterhood.

Father, continue to bless our world, community, state, city and beloved sisterhood. Please forgive us of our sins and keep us in your loving care.

If there is anyone amongst us who is sick, touch their bodies with your finger of love. Lord, I pray that you keep our hearts and minds healthy and sharp so we may do the work we’ve been called to do for the edification of your kingdom.

I pray a special prayer for those who have been impacted by the virus that is sweeping through the world. I pray a double hedge of protection around all of us.

In, I Peter 2:24, the Bible declares “that by your strips we are healed.” So, we are rejoicing today because we know, whatever comes our way, you have everything under control! Continue to increase our faith and our love for one another.

Thank you, Lord, for keeping us safe and for protecting us from all hurt, harm and danger. We love you and will forever give your name the praise.

In Jesus name, Amen.
