Day 28 meditation proclaims the powerful truth that there is peace in the time of storms.
In this world, the children of God often live, move, and have their being amidst times of strain and stress. Every child of God at one time or another will come face to face with the storms of life. Failing to experience Christianity as it was meant to be, the believer may experience distress, despair, and a sense of being forsaken or destroyed needlessly.
There may be several reasons why these troublesome times may adversely affect us, but one stands out far above any of the possible causes of anxiety and pain. We just cannot cope with the pressures of this age. We evidently are unable, as the gospel of Jesus Christ boldly declares, to flee for refuge (Heb. 6:18) from the disasters we face in life. We seemingly do not have an anchor (Heb.6:19) to hold us sure and steadfast (Heb. 6:19) in the midst of storms. We apparently do not have a hope (Heb. 6:18) to sustain us through our troubles. For some reason, far too many Christians do not understand that the grace of God is sufficient to produce a peace that passes understanding in the midst, not sometime after, the storm.
Day 28 meditation proclaims the power of the Grace of God to produce peace of God in any storm.
The writer of Hebrews boldly proclaims why the grace of God is sufficient to produce peace in the midst of the storm:
Wherein God, willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec (Heb. 6:17-20).
Jesus Christ is your City of Refuge! Jesus Christ is your Anchor! Jesus Christ is your Intercessor! Jesus Christ is your Fortress of Hope! There is no trouble great enough, no storm large enough, and no disaster big enough that cannot be conquered by your hope in Jesus Christ.
Day 28 meditation explains how Jesus can conquer the anxiety of the human mind.
There is nothing that can harm you unless you first form the opinion in your mind that you have been harmed. Jesus Christ has come back through the veil to baptize you with the power of the Holy Spirit to conquer the anxiety of your mind. The simple confession through the grace of God that Jesus Christ is your City of Refuge, your Anchor, your Intercessor, and your Fortress of Hope will bring peace in the time of your storm. The meditation of day 28 will help the believer into the realm of the power of the grace of God.
