The other day it was storming really hard. It got really dark, the wind was blowing really hard, and the rain was coming down so hard that you couldn’t see anything in front of you. The LORD showed me that this is what it is like in a Spiritual life storm. The wind is blowing, the rain is coming blowing hard and you can’t see anything. I heard the LORD say “Don’t look at the dark clouds, look at ME.”

Now a storm could be heartache, depression, pain, abuse, bulling, ext!!! Now there are two ways you can act in a storm that is in your life.
1) You could stand in the storm and worry, be afraid, blame GOD, be negative, cry and think woe is me. You could talk about it all the time. You could look at the storm and let it take over your life.
2) You could be positive. You could praise GOD that what satan wanted for a deserter in your life, GOD can turn it for HIS glory!!!! You can take JESUS’ hand and have HIM walk you through the storm!!!
The LORD brought to my mind the story of Peter walking on the water. Lets take a look at that:
29) But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. 25) Now in the fourth watch of the night JESUS went to them, walking on the sea. 26) And when the disciples saw HIM walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear. 27) But immediately JESUS spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.” 28) And Peter answered HIM and said, “LORD, if it is YOU, command me to come to YOU on the water.” 29) So HE said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. (NKJV)
Now Peter was WALKING on the water to JESUS!!!!!!! Then look what happened:
30) But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “LORD, save me!” 31) And immediately JESUS stretched out HIS hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32) And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. (NKJV)
Peter started looking at the storm and then he started sinking! He cried out for JESUS to help him. JESUS took Peter by the hand and GET THIS!!!!!! They walked BACK to boat!!!!! Did you get that?? They WALKED back to the boat, on the water!!!! ON THE WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WALKING through the storm together!!!!! That is the way it should be with us. With every storm that comes our way, we should walk with JESU!!! Even if there is not a storm in out lives, we still need to walk with HIM!!!! Now GOD didn’t cause the storms in our lives!!!! But GOD can work through them if you will let HIM!!!!!
So walk with JESUS and the sun will shine!!!!
