 Those who run from the storm will be caught by it...

Devotional: Running for CHRIST…towards HIM relentlessly is one matter. Running FROM the storm of the day…simply means it will chase you till its clouds fully envelop your frame. Your only defense is to stand in CHRIST. When you base your stance on the history which GOD has shown you several times…where HE has spared you from countless things… then you too can lean forward into the teeth of the storm which the devil brings. Unrelenting then refers to your forward stance which displays your faith in CHRIST. Well we all know that HIS power will sustain us no matter what the demonic host throws against us.
Amen and Amen!

Unrelenting

To stand at the edge of the
field as the storm
approaches,
is to anticipate the contrast
between calm breezes
and chaos.
It is to await the high winds
which bend trees and
confidences…
and not shrink backwards in
a shadowy retreat
so complacent.
Furthermore, it is where one
leans forward – with zeal
daring the devil…
well knowing from History’s page
that the storm passes those
who do not run.

As HIS servant in your service,
WVW Jasnoch (12/8/07)

 Re: Those who run from the storm will be caught by it...

I think of Jonah and several other people in the Bible. Jonah ran from God but God chased him down. Gods loves us enough to chase us down and set our feet on a solid rock so we can look forward with confidence. When I was a young child there was a tornado that went up over our house. My dad made sure everyone else was in the basement but he loved to watch storms. He stood in our front doorway and watched as the tornado hit the ditch in our front yard and jump up over our house. We had this story to share often when other storms came our way. Praise the faithfulness of God! Indeed, the history of Gods faithfulness does give us confidence. Ephesians 6 talks about our spiritual weapons. Verse 13, in particuliar, says wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all, to stand.
