He comes in the storm with power and authority.
Creator of all.
Ruler of all.
Sustainer of all.
With a word, He can cause the storm to cease. With a word, He can bring great calm. With a word, He can speak peace. In His presence, there is peace.
As the winds of life howl and the storms rage, He holds us–safely and securely in His almighty hands. As the winds drive the pounding rain, and our hearts pound in fear, He comes. Listen to the power of His words, “Peace. Be still.”*
Over and encircling, through and beneath, His presence pervades; and there is peace.
This is our God. The God above all gods. Let us never be shaken.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” **
