January 31, 2018 Outlast

Standard

Mornin’ y’all. God loves impossible situations.

That’s where he does his finest work.

He could have rescued Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from the fury of the king and from the fury of the flames BEFORE they were ever thrown in. But, God waited until they were all the way in. And, His God-timing was perfect.

Just thinking .. when I don’t know where the storm is coming from …

When I am powerless to stop it …

When there’s no reason for it …

When unjust things occur …

I can’t fix the storm. But, praise God, I can outlast it. Because I’m not going anywhere. The drought can grow all it likes. The wind can blow as hard as it wants to. But when all is said and done, by the grace of God, I’m still going to be here. I’m going to be right where I am (or higher), in my place, seeking God and doing what God has called me to do.

So let the winds blow if they need to. Let the scorching drought or the flooding rains come if they need to. I’m going to hunker down in the shadow of the Almighty, and He’ll keep me safe through the storm. And all I have to do is get through it. All I have to do is outlast it.

One breath at a time,

one response at a time,

one day at a time.

And, that’s all you have to do, too. All you have to do is outlast the storm … because every storm in history has stopped sometime.

There’s not a single storm that’s ever been, on the face of the whole earth, that hasn’t stopped. Not one. That means your problems have a shelf life.

Your storm has an end.

The winds of adversity cannot blow forever.

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” Daniel 3:16-18

“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!” Daniel 3:25 NLT

“There is no other god who can rescue like this!” Daniel 3:29 NLT

Wake up.

There is no god like our God.

Outlast this.

Go.
