Surviving the Storm


When we hear the word ‘storm’ an image of a turbulent weather associated with wind and rain, comes to mind.

Many of us are going through some storms in our lives. Storms that come to cause us pain and sorrow. Storms that causes a tear to come to our eyes, as we remember past events, that has brought us to the brink of hopelessness and despair.  Can you imagine the storms raging on and on and no sign of ever stopping?

The Bible states in Matthew 8:24-25, Jesus’ disciples were afraid of the storm that was raging whilst He slept.  They actually thought they were a “goner.”

Although our storm can be almost too hard for us to bear at times, however, a sudden change will occur as you ride out the storm. Don’t perish in your circumstances (storm). Because the greater your mission, the greater your storm will be.

What am I saying?  Life is about storms and turbulence and about surviving it. We are not exempt from them, regardless of stature or age. Storms may come to test your faith and it is no respect of person. I am a witness to it.

When the storm has calmed down and you have kept your head above water, you would now know, that you, my friend, have survived the storm by faith.

Abundance of Blessing

Featured Image -- 306

I decree and declare that God will cause a downpouring of blessing to come down in your season; there shall be showers of blessings on you today.

His blessings rest on those who are faithful to Him. His blessings brings righteousness (Psalms 24:5).

It does not matter where you are in your circumstances; there will always be a portion of blessings available to you, if you trust Him.  He will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches (Phillipians 4:19).

We all have gone through the motion of life where we have felt we needed to ‘throw in the towel’ at times. But you only have to wait and be encouraged.

Your situation or circumstances that you are facing right now will not be always like that.  Your blessings is just around the corner; wait and receive it with a grateful heart.

At times when we are not feeling at our best, we find that we cannot wait for the blessing that God has promised us. Just when we are about to receive it, we “…lean on our own understanding“, and find we have missed our blessing.  If only we had only waited a little longer. We get so impatient of waiting, because God’s timing is not the same as our own.

We read in the Old Testament that the people of Israel missed out on the very promise that God had promised them; the Promised Land. Instead of them trusting God at His word, they grumbled and complained (Numbers 14:2).

In today’s society nothing has not changed from the days of old. We blame God for everything that is going on in the world.

Be encouraged: God will make a way when it seems to be no way.

“I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing” (Ezekiel 34:26).

We decree and declare we will dwell in the midst of infinite abundance because the God that we worship is the God of Abundance.  As we open our hearts to receive what He has promised, we will not be amaze by what He will do in His appointed time.

We will not be burdened by the thoughts of our past or future, and by our actions and our deep rapport with God; our abundance will be made manifest.

I pray that the person who is reading this blog, will receive His overflow of abundant blessing from this day forward. Not only will they be blessed in their finances, but they will be blessed at work and in their family. Showers of blessing will overflow as we receive it, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Tarry a little longer, no matter how long the road ahead seems, He will bring you through it if we wait.
