While in worship today I saw a vision of the disciples in the boat during the storm; I felt as if I was in there with them.
Jesus had told the disciples to go to the other side, yet the disciples were in real fear during the storm.
As I watched this ‘video’ in my head I heard Jesus speaking to me through the vision.
He told me that He had told us (He was including me in with the disciples) to do something.
He told me that He did not send the storm.
He told me that He did not want to accompany us through the storm; He said He had given us authority to calm the storm.
This goes against so much of what we hear in some sections of the church, that the Lord will send storms into our lives and that Jesus will be with us as we go through these storms.
Now, we can learn as we go through storms and yes Jesus will stay with us, however when we see Jesus in a storm He calmed it; and He is telling us today that we can calm them as well.
He has given us authority over this physical world, and He has given us the Holy Spirit for power.
Power and authority are ours!
Jesus is telling us to start yielding this power and authority against the storms in our lives.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that we have the power of the Holy Spirit and authority from Jesus to calm the storms in our lives”.
Luke 8 v 24…..And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm
