IN THE EYE OF THE STORM

Music by Ryan Stevenson
This year, once again, mother’s Day and my husband’s birthday shared the same weekend. Although it doesn’t always happen, the past few years they’ve been just a day apart. Well this year, his birthday was on the Sabbath and we did not have much time to celebrate. I made the cakes for both Mothers and Birthday and we celebrated; however, I also share my Mother’s Day with my Mother and Sister. So my daughter and I made plans to continue our Mother’s Day celebration by getting our usual mani/pedis and shopping this past Sunday.
I almost forgot where I was going with this.
My daughter and I picked out colors. I had 3 different colors in my hand just for my toes. She seemed content with her choice. Yet, I had to deliberate during my massage.
As the ladies were completing our manicures, I looked down at my feet and noticed that we had both selected the color green, reminding and prompting in my spirit that word, “Battle”. It’s that time, our God YAH is preparing us, clothing us and expecting us to ready ourselves, like the virgins with the lamps, to be ready because soon His Son, Yahusha will arrive on that White Horse, ready and prepared to claim His Bride.
But what stays in my spirit is, though we won’t have to fight the battle; somewhat like the examples set with the Hebrews coming out of Egypt, we will have to watch and wait through it.
The word of YAH tells us, that we will have floods, storms and fires; but we will get the victory and He will get the glory. So, know that in the eye of the storm, know that YAHUSHA is all in, ready to fight on our behalves.
The storm is coming. Yeshua is our anchor. Get ready. YAHUSHUA is coming. It’s time to get dressed, clothed in the garment of war.

God has not given me the spirit of the fear…
The word of God warns us that we’ll first hear the sound. And then we will see it with our own eyes for the clouds will roll back as a scroll.
In the Old Testament, during the times of battle, we know that the musicians led the way. Can you hear the ‘battle’ in the sound? I can. Whether you believe in ‘shifts’ or not; one is coming. I can hear it in the music.
A warrior, can hear the sound (of war, in this instance) in the music. And as that sound still reverberates in our spirits, we know that storms beat against our hope and our faith. But we know that fear is a liar!! For our feet are steadfast on the rock of the word!
So as we move forward in this end time hour, we cannot be afraid because we know that YAHUSHUA Himself commissioned us in this place of purpose that we now stand in.
[Mar 16:15-18 NASB] 15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 "These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
We must walk in faith, not doubt. And we must walk in conviction staring that storm (that the enemy has caused) in the eye making out confessions, knowing that the power and anointing of the Son Himself is within us. He who now holds the keys to the kingdom is giving out instructions! The music is playing. The scrolls and trumpets are readied, and the Angels are in place. Even the sound of their unity is in the music!
His covenant love surrounds us.
We cannot be defeated!
I WILL TRUST IN YOU

Therein lies our hope. Therein lies our trust.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
You are the Way

1¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
3¶Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
4¶These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
Enjoy a peaceful rest today.
"In this manner, therefore pray:
'Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation.
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory.
Matthew 6:9-13 (nkjv)
Relieve yourself of the stresses of the day by trusting God with your day.
Wake up each morning, (before you even put your feet on the floor) and give your day (back) to God.
Don't get out of bed with the responsibility of your day on you.
You just prayed that the Father made everything and owns everything. And if you believe that, then you should be able to give Him your spouse, your children, your finances, your job. And prove (test) Him that He is able to handle your day better than you try to do each day.
One day at a time. We are not promised tomorrow. Let's just deal with "today".
Close your appointment book.
Stop worrying over things you have no control.
Pray through the day and God will direct your steps.
You will not be disappointed.
And as you do this one day after another, when you look back, you will see that God made a way where it seemed there was no way.
He is the Way Maker, the Light in darkness, the Cleft in the rock (where we run and hide), the Provider.
His Name moves mountains and brings freedom to the bound.
Reach out for Him.
Call on Him.
That most beautiful Name.
Call on Him.
He'll give you the strength you need to not only face your day, but have victory in it. In His Name! Exalt Him! There is no other name.
There is healing, power, joy, freedom and victory in the Name of Jesus!
YouTube Music Video: "When I Speak Your Name" song by the Indiana Bible College IBC
Call on the mighty name of Jesus throughout the day. In every situation you can have a victory as you give Him the Glory. Speak His truth and His promises into your life.
There is Strength in that Name!
There is Joy in that Name!
Glorify the Wondrous Name of Jesus!
Oh, I know there are times in our lives when we are "troubled" by all that's going on around us. But we must remember that though we are in this world, we are not of this world. And that all that we need to do is to stay connected with Him and He will take care of us.
Jesus said in Isaiah 43:2, He will be with us in the fire and through the storm. As He was with the 3 men in the fiery furnace, there was a 4th man. And when they came out they didn't even have the smell of smoke on them. (Daniel 3)
Jesus told the disciples that they were going over to the other side (because they had a purpose on that other side). He prepared them to get through the storm by telling them beforehand that they were going to get to the other side. In the midst of the storm, Peter just needed to know that it was Jesus there (in the storm with Him) and he said to Jesus, "if it is you, Lord, just command me to come to you." (Mark 6:45-50;Matt. 14:22-32)

As long as Jesus is with you in the fire or through your storm, know that when you come through it, you will be walking in your purpose for that time in your life. For as He said to Peter while he was walking on the water, "Be of Good Cheer, it is I, be not afraid." (Mark 6:50)
Call on Jesus! All things are possible.
