We all will find ourselves coming out of a spiritual storm at some point in our lives; and we will have to sort through things as we would in a natural storm to see what did survive the storm to be used as we rebuild for the future. There are always reasons to point out as we ponder the why of the storm; however, the reasons that are the most important to point out after the storm are the ones left to remind us that we have a future to move into. When a spiritual storm does come through to shake up everything, and destroy much of what was built up from years of hard work and devotion to God; then we must see what has remained, and is alive from our past in order to identify that which is ready to help us go forth with our future. We will not have to look long, and hard to find where Father is after the storm. He will be right there in our midst, and among all in which we identified as being ready to go forth with our future. There are things left after the storm in which only the survival of the storm will know if they have a place in the future of their hope. We have to check what was left from the calling before the storm to see what’s still alive for the calling after the storm: the two will always be linked to one another, but their extension into the storm will not be as it was in the past before the storm. We now have to see how Father wants to use what was left with life for it to be the seed to bring forth the calling in the future. Father Is In The Calm After The Storm.
We will pull and stretch the Word of hope from our past after the storm in order to see if it stills carries life. We can’t assume that the previous word is still on the table once it has lost so much of what it had built. The Will of God may no longer be in the previous Word of hope to build again; and we must work it forth to give it the opportunity to show itself. We must push forth with the Word of hope given before the storm in order to find out the direction of God’s Will for the future. There will be faith for the current Word of hope regardless of when it was sent forth by Father, whether before the storm or after the storm, we will know it when the substance to manifest it comes into our midst. Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” When we push forth with the Word of hope already given, that Word will transport two types of faiths if Father is going to keep working that particular Word to bring to pass his Will post storm. One type of faith will be the faith to move us forward into the substance needed when we hear that it has come, or been transported into our midst. The other type of faith will be to draw, or to bring near to us the substances that we need to manifest the thing that we hope for so that we may step into it. Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” When we find ourselves in a challenging situation, the challenge is really not ours to handle. Father will expect us to step up to the plate, and swing when he swings; but we are not suppose to take on the challenge as it was all ours only. Whatever was destroyed in the storm is now water gone with the storm. We just need to settle down and locate what it is that we should do next to move into the future. The start of what is next can usually be found in the things left from the storm with the life to go forth. Look for the life that is ready to go forth, and start working with it just as you did before the storm. There is always a plan ready to go from the Will of Father, but the thing needed is that we be ready to go with the plan. So go forth, and just move when he moves! Father Is In The Calm After The Storm.
