Today’s Word is “Port in the Storm”.
I see a small row boat in the middle of the vast ocean. The seas are choppy and the wind is boisterous. There are waves crashing about the boat and it is tossed to and fro, buffeted from all sides and seems to almost tip over after every crashing wave. I see the boat’s occupant standing firmly, searching the seas for a place of safety, respite from the deluge. The occupant looks all about and seems to settle on a direction. I turn my eyes in the direction the boat’s occupant is gazing and see a small port in the distance. Then I see the boat moving towards the port, as though supernaturally guided; despite the storm whipping around the boat, I notice there is no more rain, wave, or wind touching the occupant.
I heard the Lord say “I AM your port in this storm. Though this life is filled with turbulence, do not fear. Stand firmly rooted in Me and know that I AM with you and I AM your place of refuge. Know that I command the wind and the wave, and when I say ‘Peace, Be Still!’ they obey. Though you may see and feel the buffeting and crashing wave, stand, for I AM taking the brunt of the storm on your behalf, and My Peace will engulf you, shielding you from any damage the storm would normally bring. Understand that as you stand, you must also rest knowing I have already brought you the victory. This storm you travel through is only a shadow and My Light reveals the shadows; know and understand no harm comes from a shadow. Allow My Spirit to steer your boat into My Port, into My Place of Refuge and rest knowing My Peace is your shield.”
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm (Mark 4:39 NKJV).
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).
Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong (1 Corinthians 16:13).
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (Ephesians 6:13).
Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven (Psalm 107:28-30).
