The sky in the distance ahead is changing colour and shape as a storm appears on the horizon. But don’t let fear grip your heart as you continue to journey forwards. He is the Lord who takes the very storm and changes it to a whisper. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. Psalm 107:29
As you continue to advance you won’t see the thunder and lightning of the storm, but instead fireworks will light up the sky. Though you feel you are driving into a storm, in fact you are driving into a celebration! And the Lord says, ‘Rejoice – behold I am with you! I am the Lord of the unexpected reversal. You will start to see that things that have contended against you will depart from you and things that are legitimately yours will come to you. See I am the Father who gives good gifts!’
Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help.
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
