Hurricane Dorian, a Category Five monster storm was documented as the most powerful hurricane to hit landfall in history. This massive system savagely ravaged two of the northern islands of the Bahamas, Abaco and Grand Bahama for several hours, leaving a path of death and destruction, such as had never been seen before.
After the storm, stories emerged of how scores of people were forced to take drastic measures just to survive. The horror of the images of this brutal storm were lamented by all. In the aftermath of the storm, the lives of many people were changed forever.
Similarly, the “storms of life” can bring devastating challenges, that can alter the very course of your life. After waking from an emergency surgery; burying a son or daughter; surviving a tragic car crash; rebounding from bankruptcy; enduring a tumultuous marriage or bitter divorce; many look back on such experiences with a new outlook on life; whether good or bad; no one can face such extreme traumas and remain the same.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
In John 16:33, Jesus warns and encourages His disciples that there will be confronted with many challenging experiences, but once we keep our hope and confidence in Him, He will give us the power to overcome any challenge we face in life.
PRAYER: I pray that you will begin to strengthen your relationship with God so that when you are confronted with the difficulties of life, that you will be able to trust God to help you endure to the end. I come against every spirit fear and confusion that would distract you from turning to God as your ultimate source as you seek to navigate the adversities of life. In Jesus name!
PROPHETIC DECLARATION: I decree and declare that you will call on the Lord in your distress knowing that He is a strong and mighty tower that the righteous can run into and be safe!
