Good afternoon blogger peeps !!! Once again… it’s raining in Brisvegas, which is so great.. and we even got a decent storm with it. I just love how God works in every situation though, as I have had ‘Still’ by Hillsong in my head all day.. so when it was storming just now, lightening, thunder, flash flooding…. those words came alive in front of me.
When the Oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with You above the storm. Father, You are king over the flood. I will be still & know you are God.
I have a list of great scriptures to share with you this afternoon which are of great help to me.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:13
For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken. Psalm 62:1-2
So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me? Hebrews 13:6
Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he hears my voice. Psalm 55:17
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18
For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord, Proverbs 8:35
In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. Psalm 120:1
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. Jeremiah 29:11-12
if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
for it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Romans 14:11
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ Mark 12:30
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. Mark 13:31
I love the ‘Still’ lyrics and the fact that I’ve had them running through my head all day. The ‘stillness’ is so important as it is VERY easy to get busy in your own mind with what ‘should’ be happening, or for the ‘why’ questions to start… and then have plenty of my own answers ready… but it’s HIS answers I need, it’s HIS promises I need to cling to, it’s HIS love that I need to soak in at these times even more than usual.
All I can say is how blessed are we to have God’s word to draw on and help us in EVERY situation. There is not a single struggle, or blessing for that matter, that we can’t find instruction on in His Word.
Ok peeps… Have a great evening
