Just a few hours ago, I left a restaurant after having lunch with some friends and just as I was leaving, it started to rain. And I don’t mean a few raindrops. It started raining so hard that I could barely see in front of me. And I really don’t like to driving when it’s raining that hard. I’ve never been fond of the rain and driving because the day I took my drivers test many years ago, I failed because I had to take the test in torrential rains.
As I braced myself to carefully drive home, within 5 secs, I drove out of the storm in to bright sunshine! It blew my mind!! I’ve seen it happen before with light rain, but never have I driven out of torrential rains into dry streets with the sun shining. As I looked in my mirror, I could still see the storm behind me!! It happened so quickly all I could do was shake my head and rejoice! As quickly as the storm started and as I anticipated being in it a little while longer, it was over.
Of course it all felt very prophetic to me. Lately, I have been in a weak place with little or no faith because I’ve been going through some storms for such a long time. Surely, coming out of this rain storm the way that I did was a sign to me from God that the storm is over! All I can say is hallelujah!
I’m looking for it all to happen. No more proclamations. Just seeing it manifest just as I did today. I’m coming right out of this storm and so are you!
Matthew 8:23-27 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus Calms the Storm
23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
