WEEKLY WORD OF POWER AND PRAYER
Week of August 14, 2017



All Is Well!

       You know how summer thunderstorms can be?  Some people are okay with the noise and darkness and others have problems with them. 

       Sometimes we have a problem facing the storm in our life’s circumstances.  It’s just too unnerving.  Too much noise.  The circumstances have thrown us off.  So we have a challenge in navigating what is happening.  We need some help until the storm passes.

       That’s what God is there to give to you.  He helps you to be still.  Have peace.  Composure.  You don’t have to be in a frenzy or worry or constant dissatisfaction.  In other words you’re able to face each day and do what you must.  You can go about your day with trust in the Lord and not feel that at any minute you’ll have a meltdown.  Thoughts and emotions don’t torment you. 

       This is what Jesus was trying to get the disciples to discover.  They were in a boat on the sea when they were caught in a storm, and it seemed as though it was going to wipe them out.  If they had taken a long look at the face of Jesus, they would have known all was well. 

       So when they panicked, Jesus said to them, “Why are you so timid and fearful?  Where is your faith—your trust and confidence in Me?”  (Ref. Luke 8: 25 and Mark 4:40.)  Then He took power over the storm and stilled the wind and waves.  Everything became calm.  You can trust the One who has the power over the storm. 

       It reminds me of a story that the famous author Robert Louis Stevenson tells.  He describes a ship that was making its way just off a rocky coast.  As it did, it got caught in a terrible storm.  Well, when you have a storm tossing you around and at the same time you’re in a rocky area, you can be headed for destruction.  So the passengers on the ship began to panic.  They were all down in the lower part of the ship trying to stay safe.  But it felt as if the storm was going to destroy the ship. 

       The fear was so great among them that finally one of the passengers decided to make his way up to where the pilot was.  Once he got there, he saw the pilot had tied himself to his post to withstand the waves that were coming, and he had his hands on the wheel.  Bit by bit he was steering the ship away from the rocky coast back out to the sea.  When the pilot noticed the passenger there and saw how his face was filled with fear, he smiled real big at him. 

       So the passenger turned around, went down to the deck below, then shouted to all the others, “I have seen the face of the pilot and he smiled.  All is well.” 

       That’s what the Lord is saying to you as you view His face.  He’s smiling saying, “All is well.  I’m going to take care of you.  The storm is not too big.  It’s not going to sweep you away.  I’m here for you, and I’m steering your ship away from the rocky coast.  You’re going into something better.  So be at peace and trust Me.” 

       Oh, God is speaking so much to your spirit right now.  With His words and assurance, you can rest until the storm passes.  Because you know, it will pass.  God is in control.  He’s not worried if you can make it out of this okay.  He knows you will as you trust Him and have faith. 

       So when you feel the panic or tormenting thoughts and emotions start to rise up within you, just ask yourself the same thing that Jesus said to the disciples, “Where is my trust?  Why am I afraid?”  Then answer with, “I’m not fearful or timid.  I have confidence in God.”  Understand your position in Him.  And your position is greater than the storm. 

       Allow the Spirit of God to flood you with peace and confidence so you truly can rest until the storm passes.


A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:
“ALL IS WELL FOR ME!”

Here is a powerful prayer to say out loud:

      Lord, I receive Your help in the midst of the storm today.  I will not fear or be worried because I see Your face.  And Your face tells me that “all is well.”  I’m coming out of this with greater blessing and victory in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

                                                         My Mom Can SEE!

       “Thank you so much for your obedience to God.  He has done amazing things in my life and continues to do so.  My mom recently developed cataracts and needed surgery on both eyes.  She was blind without her glasses and could barely see light.  She elected to have Lasik surgery.  After her surgery, she can now watch television and function without her glasses.  My heart is singing because God allowed her to have the funds to afford Lasik.  My mom can SEE!  Above and beyond what she ever imagined!  No matter what I’m going through, your messages are always right on time and on target.  Thank you, and I pray God continues to abundantly bless your ministry!

                                     Engaged To Be Married!

       “My guy friend of three years and I are engaged to be married.  We both had been praying about a spouse and becoming more fond of each other, but we had not revealed our true feelings to each other.  We’re so happy.  This is part of the words of knowledge I received through you as mine from your teaching.  I love you both and continue to be your Partner in God’s work.”
