Sometimes life can blindside and turn your whole life upside down be assured there is consolation, comfort, and renewed hope in the Word of God. The sons of Korah who were the temple assistants who wrote Psalm 46 and described the fear of mountains or cities crumbling into the sea, however, in the face of utter destruction. The writer expresses a quiet confidence in God’s ability to save him. Let us read those three verses together –
Verse (1) “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Verse (2) “Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,” Verse (3) “though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” As we brace ourselves for this pending storm and understand that the Almighty God, our Abba Father is aware of where you are and is right there with us! Yahweh is Faithful and will not fail you! God will manifest His Word. Recently I noticed my youngest daughter almost walked into the dining room wall! Several times it was evident she could see nothing. Suddenly she began to struggle while walking and limped extremely hard. It saddened me to the core of my being and drove me to my knees. The Word spoke from Psalm 29 verse (1) “Ascribe to the LORD, O mighty ones, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Verse (2) “Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to His name; worship the LORD in the splendor of His holiness.” Adoration, honour and praise flowed from my lips while the high praises of thanksgiving unto the LORD filled the prayer room. When I arose from the floor on my knee and discovered it was the breaking of the dawn! I knew there was the hope of complete healing and deliverance for Nia. She awakened early feeling refreshed still limping a bit, but the pain had subsided, I took her to have an eye examination, but as the test progressed, I realized she was failing the test. Very gently they gave the news! They could not help Nia, and gave her a referral for an appointment to see a Specialist. While I driving my car home, I said, “LORD, I believe you are still working miracles! Nia needs a Healing now!” We went to Prayer Meeting and although we were few, the presence of the LORD filled the Atmosphere as the conductor began to worship and give glory unto Abba Father. She said, we will now sing from our Church Hymnal number 53, O God How Great Thou Art. I turned to Nia and said, Sing Nia! The Spirit of the LORD took enveloped her as she fastened her eyes on my lips, beautiful sounds of melodious singing flowed from her lips, she sang the four stanzas. Listen I could hardly contain myself while I fought back the tears – This was like a storm of life to me, but God not only manifests His great power in nature. He also teaches us that we can trust Him to give us both peace and strength to weather the storms of life.
Listen as I hasten to conclude, and we hunker down to brace ourselves for this pending storm. Remember God is the Provider. He gives refuge, security, and peace His power is complete, and Abba Father will rescue those who love Him. At the prayer meeting while the miracle unfolded, I heard the LORD whisper, “Nia is reading your lips and she is seeing with her eyes!” The Anointing was upon her as joy filled her soul and the church seemed filled to capacity, although we were few. The limping fled the scene and her vision increased while healing flowed unceasingly! What a miracle in the House of God! The question is, Will you trust Abba Father to take care of you and keep you safe until the storm passes? Will you stand firm on the Word of God and activate your faith to receive your miracle? God is your refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. God will take care of you!
