In the middle of this storm….

This is one of my favorite songs. I always sang along and imagined myself saying to Jesus, “I am holding onto You”, especially in stressful or difficult situations. Tonight as I was listening to it, it occurred to me that it is Jesus saying those words. “I am holding on to you. In the middle of this storm, I am holding on. I am”. This makes me love the song even more!

In the middle of the storm He is holding on to you. We will encounter storms in our lives but He is always close by to those who love Him. He may or may not calm the storm but He will always carry us through them.

Jesus is LORD and “Breaking Prophetic News – Watch October / November 2021”

There is so much happening in the world right now, and so much going on in the news, that it can be easy to lose our center of focus. As Christians we must remember that no matter what happens that Jesus is Lord. So many people claim Him as Savior, and of course He is that and so many other things, but He is also Lord. He is our Lord, He is our Commander, in this spiritual war. But even more than that, He is the Victor! We must remember that while we are in the throes of battle, the war has already been won. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords and one day every knee shall bow before Him.

Psalm 91 is a favorite passage of mine and I often pray it over my home. I think we American Christians run to God for protection, and of course He is our mighty fortress and our Protector and Provider, but every now and then I have to remind myself that this life is not my own. I am a servant of the Most High as well as His child. Our time here on Earth is winding down, so let that encourage us to work while it is still day. There are still so many people out there who are deceived and lost. Let us continue to shine our light, which is the Light of Christ. Let us keep our focus ever upon Him, and await the day that we hear, “well done, good and faithful servant.”

GIDEON’S 300: WHY A SMALL GROUP OF REAL CHRISTIANS IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN 32,000 PRETENDERS [Part 5: Make Your Calling and Election Sure]

The following article is excellent and while it may be somewhat lengthy it is definitely worth the read. Here is a quote:

Unlike Unreal Christianity, which refuses to fully submit to and honor the Lord Jesus, has made friends with the world and declines to engage in spiritual battle, is complacent under the ever-restrictive yoke of the enemy, serves money rather than serving the Lord, and embraces spiritual pride to the nth degree (sound familiar?), the relative few real Christians in this country have been chosen “for such a time as this

The Gideon Paradigm was invoked by the Lord Jesus. He claimed that only a relative few would gain salvation. The same is true for “Christianity.” Only a small percentage of “Christians” will be saved. . “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and […]
