Chronological Bible: February 27, Unnecessary storms…
- Deuteronomy 18:1-21:21
“…but as for you, the Lord your God has not appointed such for you.” –Deuteronomy 18:14, NKJV
The temptation of discontent hovers. Whispers of “why not me” and “why do I have to be patient” fill the air, wind currents dipping and swirling about my heart. Insecurity cuts through to poke at the sore spots. Before long a storm has come, creating a struggle through which I must fight.
Some storms are necessary. This one is not. At any point in its brewing, I can stopped the energy from building.
“…the Lord your God has not appointed such for you.”
When I speak against the brewing storm the truth that God holds my life the storm-energy dissipates. When it tries to build again, holding fast the will of God and trusting Him for the steps ahead shifts the air current away from me.
Some storms are needed. But some we allow to brew when we take our eye off the One who holds every moment of our future. Discern the nature of the storm and you can discern the weapons which will dissipate it. Remember the One who holds you and send that storm someplace else.
