As I laid in bed this morning with my eyes closed I could see the flashes of lightning, with the resounding roar of thunder at about the ten count.
I love the sounds of a good thunderstorm! When I was a kid I was scared of the lightning, and would sit in my room trying to convince myself that it was God bowling up in heaven.
Today, many years after the times as a child, I enjoy the storms and instead of fear I am filled with a calm.
As a child I wasn’t sure if I was going to be safe. The thunder was so intense and booming that it felt at times like the house would shake. As a child the sounds were scary, intimidating, and generated fear.
WHAT ABOUT NOW?
I can lay in the bed and not be afraid because of the safety of the house. I know I am safe when I am in the house, and the fear doesn’t even rise.
Our storms of life, especially as a child in Christ, can be pretty scary, intimidating, breathtaking, BUT, as you get older in your walk with Jesus you realize you are safe in the house. Storms will come! Lightning will flash! Thunder will shake the house, BUT, when you are a child of the King and you are in His house, YOU ARE SAFE!
When a child gets scared what do they do? They cry out for mom or dad, and when they hit their arms, they feel safe!
RUN TO YOUR DADDY WHEN THE STORM COMES! Don’t run away, run toward and you will find safety, security, protection and all the love you can handle.
YES, the storms will come, but you can listen to the storm and know you are safe in His house!
You know you have proven this when the storms get intense and you can rest in the house with no fear!
Psalm 23:4, Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
Psalm 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and your right hand delivers me.
2 Samuel 22:3-4 my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; you save me from violence. I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.
