It is STILL Well

"Let go, my soul and trust in Him.  The waves and wind still know His Name." That is a line from the video I have embedded above.  Think about this.  When all the powers of earth and hell seem to be tossing your boat around, those powers still must and still do know His Name..  They are fully at his command.  That includes any interference of demonic origin.  When Jesus conversed with "Legion", the demons plaguing the man from the Gaberdines, they begged him not to destroy them.  Jesus agreed to allow them to possess a herd of swine...which immediately plunged off of a cliff and into the sea.  The demons had to yield to the will of the Master.

Do you understand what this means?
It does not mean that God is torturing you by allowing hardship and heartache.  It means that His purposes will stand...regardless of what you are facing; what you are up against.  He is for you. NOT against you.  And the disciples marveled that even the wind and storm obeyed Him. 

It means that God is doing something purposeful in your life.  It means that when you pray to Him for relief and for help, He is eminently prepared to help.  He can shout over the winds and rain: PEACE!!! BE STILL!  And that storm must give way and relent it's furious pounding on your little boat.  His disciples, when they found Him asleep in the wave tossed boat said "Master, don't you care if we drown?"  They did not realize that his presence alone was adequate protection.  And he rebuked them. "Where is your faith?"

I would ask you that this morning.I would ask myself that as well.  "Where is your faith?"

Please continue to pray for me.  I am so glad to know that "the waves and wind still know His Name."
