Will you have that Storm to be Calmed ?

Purpose : That God may calm that storm in your life. Speak LORD to our hearts and may we come and trust in thee and not put our confidence in man. May you LORD have all the glory and praise.

Before you can be helped through this you must make a decision. There are only two paths and only one will bring you to the results of the calming of the storm in your life. The Truth. The Truth never changes with time. It is the same in blessing or in the storm. The Truth is not a respecter of persons. So far, all I hear is an opinion of a man. Therefore we must look for this wisdom from the authority higher than just a man’s.

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

1Co 1:17 ¶ For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
1Co 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1Co 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1Co 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1Co 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
1Co 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1Co 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Co 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1Co 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Co 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Co 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

A painting to the artist tells a story. One stroke at a time with colors and the expression and the feeling. It will not make any sense until later as the idea becomes alive. God’s Word is alive to those who have the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is our teacher who will guide his children in all truth.

1Co 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
1Co 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

We must come to the truth and be honest before him!

Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Ge 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Ge 3:13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Nothing new under the sun. But I am a victim

1Jo 1:8 ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1Jo 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. What a promise from God! Not just a promise of man.
1Jo 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Lu 15:13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
Lu 15:14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
Lu 15:15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
Lu 15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
Lu 15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
Lu 15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
Lu 15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
Lu 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
Lu 15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
Lu 15:22 But the father said to h

is servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Lu 15:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
Lu 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

When Jesus was telling this story, the people consisted of those who believe in the truth sent from God and those just looking for an excuse not to believe the wonderful works and words of God.

They have a storm in their lives. This is not God’s will for any of mankind. His will is peace and joy, not fear and guilt.

Job 21:18 They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.

Ps 55:1A Psalm of David. Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
Ps 55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
Ps 55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
Ps 55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
Ps 55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.

Ps 107:30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
Ps 107:31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
Ps 107:32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
Ps 107:33 ¶ He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
Ps 107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
Ps 107:35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
Ps 107:36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
Ps 107:37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
Ps 107:38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
Ps 107:39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

I pray that God’s Word is showing you the painting of his story of his Great love to each individual person. If you want that storm in your life to be calmed you must make a decision.

Man or God.

James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. This is God’s will for all mankind.

The Devil deceives people doubt the Truth of Christ and to believe the lie.

Ge 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Ge 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Death is the penalty for Sin against God and man. This is not just a physical death, it is much more.

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

These are the words of Christ Jesus before he was crucified.

Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

The Word of God promises me that my sin against God and Man can be forgiven before God in a just manner through the redemption by Christ Jesus.

Webster Dictionary 1828

Redemption: In theology, the purchase of God’s favor by the death and sufferings of Christ; the ransom or deliverance of sinners from the bondage of sin and the penalties of God’s violated law by the atonement of Christ.

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Eph 2:4 ¶ But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

Will you allow the Lord Jesus Christ to calm the storm of sin in your soul and become a Child of God?

Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Luke 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Christ words

Webster Dictionary 1828

Repent: In theology, to sorrow or be pained for sin, as a violation of God’s holy law, a dishonor to his character and government, and the foulest ingratitude to a Being of infinite benevolence.

Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Ro 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

1Co 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
1Co 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
1Co 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
1Co 1:5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
1Co 1:6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
1Co 1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1Co 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Co 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1Co 1:10 ¶ Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

There is more truth to set you free and to be at peace in the storm that this life will throw at you.

For the Word of God is alive and knows all. I cannot believe any person would trust in man’s wisdom over God’s Truth.

Only one reason they would chose to go the way of man.

Let the scripture answer for itself.

John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

You still hold to the world, what is important to man , not to what is important to God. Very dangerous decision turn while there is still time. God’s will is still not willing that any perish under the Judgment of God but that all would repent and come to Christ for forgiveness.

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2 Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Lu 15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
Lu 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
Lu 15:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
Lu 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
