Rhema

Everyone in my family has been struggling with fear this past week. There is the potential for something excruciatingly painful and hard to strike our family, and today is the day it will be revealed. I have known fear, but I have never known THIS fear before. I sound cryptic, but as yet, I must leave it so for now. Suffice to say is that we've been tempted to worry and fear of a sort we've never faced before.

I have been afraid. But in this rhema from the Lord, I have found my strength to face with courage and trust whatever the Lord allows in this family:

"And behold, the Lord passed by, and a mighty wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire.
And after the fire, the sound of a still, small voice."
(1 Kings 19:11)

Whatever comes our way, the Lord is not the wind, the earthquake, or the fire.
  He is not the bad thing.
He is the still, small voice that comes with it.
