There will be thunder, lightning;
Heaven and earth will shake.
There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear, apprehensive in expectation of the things which are coming upon the world. (Lk 21:25-26)
Hearts of the people will shake
Just as the trees of the forest are shaken by the wind. Everything that can be shaken will be removed
So that what cannot be shaken may remain.
Do not be afraid!
For the Lord is inspiring you to obey
So that the fear of the Lord may remain in you
So you do not sin.
When these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. (Lk 21:28)
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire”. (Heb 12:28-29)
ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS,
AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS.
THE GRASS WITHERS,
AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,
BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER .
Do not be afraid!
Purify yourselves by obeying the truth.
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. According to alamoth. A song.
God is our refuge and strength,
… an ever-present help in trouble.
For this reason we will not fear,
… even though the earth shake
… and the mountains crumble into the heart of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
… though the mountains shake with its swelling.
There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God.
… The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
… God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
… He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Come, behold the works of the LORD,
… who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
… He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
… He burns the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God;
… I will be exalted among the nations,
… I will be exalted in the earth!
The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge.

oooo — Gayle — Isa 54 YES!
Isaiah 54:14-15 You will be reestablished when I vindicate you. You will not experience oppression; indeed, you will not be afraid. You will not be terrified, for nothing frightening will come near you. If anyone dares to challenge you, it will not be my doing! Whoever tries to challenge you will be defeated.
He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
… which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths;
… in their peril their courage melted away.
They reeled and staggered like drunken men;
… they were at their wits’ end.
They cried out to the Lord in their distress;
… He delivered them from their troubles.
He stilled the storm to a whisper;
… the waves of the sea were hushed.
What a blessing was that stillness as
… he brought them safely into harbor!
Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness,
… and for His wonders to the sons of men!
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
When the storms rage, and the winds blow
When the waves are high
When we our hearts are shaken
And our strength and courage seem to melt away
Remember the One and Only
The One who the wind and waves obey
The Lord Most High who can calm any storm
“Peace! Be Still!”
|Lord, thank that You can calm any storm, both those around us and those within. Lord, speak to our storms, speak ‘Peace Be Still’. Hush our emotions, dispel confusion and fear, quiet our souls, that we may clearly hear Your voice and be led by Your Spirit. Help us to walk in the Spirit and keep in step. Help us to be still and know you are God!
Thank You Lord for the blessing of Your stillness, Your peace — thank You that You are the Prince of Peace. Lead us into Your safe harbor.</tr
