There’s a storm coming. We’ve heard it over and over. We’ve been told to prepare. We’ve also been told this same thing regarding a coming storm and we have been told to prepare spiritually for it. So have you? I am not talking about stockpiling food or weapons or candles or batteries or any thing like that. I am talking about spiritual preparation!!! The weather forecasters can issue a warning and people flock to the store and seems everyone is preparing in the natural. Evidenced by the pictures of empty bread shelves I’ve seen. The men and women of God issue a warning and it is true that some heed their warnings but for most it falls on deaf ears.
So here is what I am feeling regarding these two storms –
Don’t waste time worrying about the bread and the milk. By Sunday this will likely be a thing of the past and we can all last a few days without bread and milk. Eat all that other stuff you have stored up in your cabinets and in your freezer. You know!!! That food at the bottom or the back that you will throw out next year because it has become too old. I know some don’t but many of us probably have at least a week’s worth of just that.
But even more eat the Word!!! For this coming storm start memorizing Psalm 91. Don’t wait until the power goes out…but if it does that would be a good way for all of us to spend our time. Memorize it and then speak it out. Get used to and comfortable speaking it out so that when any storm comes you aren’t fumbling around for it but instead you are prepared and the first weapon you grab is your SWORD (which is the Word of GOD). The Word and your mouth speaking the Word…that’ll turn the power on!
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
