Have you ever watched storm chasers on TV or on a movie? You will notice when they receive notification a storm is coming they track respectively, not driving away but directly into the storm. It sounds ludicrous, but they are storm chasers, it’s what they do and do it well while maintaining safety.
I want you to know when we speak the Word of God, it is the storm chaser. It chases down the storms that come into our life and instead of taking pictures it defuses the storm. The word of God does not drive away from the storm but tackles it head on. The word of God does not show up to take pictures, but shows up to defuse the storm. Storms will come in life. While they may be difficult to navigate, rest assured that God will not give you more than you can bear and with Him, nothing is impossible.
In the bible there were several different types of storms. One storm caused the disciples to panic, even though Jesus had told them to cross over to the other side. In this passage of text Jesus had finished feeding five thousand; there were even 12 baskets left over. The disciples followed Jesus’ word and loaded onto the ship and began to sail to the other side. No matter what is occurring the word given to us by God will always take precedence to the opposition. So, around 3am in the morning a great storm arose. This storm was so horrific they began to throw out all of their belongings. Jesus saw them and came walking on the water. He eventually loaded into the boat and said “Peace Be still,” and they were immediately on the other side. Jesus is the storm stopper. Another storm was when Jesus was in the boat, and He was asleep when it began. The disciples once again were afraid and went to awake him. When he awoke, He said o, ye of little faith and said "Peace, Be still." The third type of storm was a hurricane. In this storm, Paul the Apostle was being transported to another city. In the process God sent an angel and he stood by Paul and said there would be no loss of life. In each of these storms, God was there. His Word superseded what was occurring.
It’s the Word that causes the storm to cease and brings into existence God’s supernatural peace that passes all understanding. Jesus said call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things; Jeremiah 33:3. There is not a storm that God’s Word cannot cause to cease.
Today, I want to encourage you to speak the Word. Find scriptures to release toward the storm and see how one word, one scripture can cause the storm to be peaceful and still. Speak the Word and see God’s supernatural hand calm the storms in your life.
