For the past week, I have felt such peace – it has surrounded me on days that I knew I would fall apart if I didn’t have it.
On this morning, I knew I had to thank the Lord for it because it truly meant so much to have His peace all around me.
As I worshipped, I was taken to Heaven and found myself standing with Jesus. We were standing in a place that had green foliage all around us. Again – peace flooded in, and it was wonderful.
We sat comfortably on the soft ground, and we talked for a few minutes. I thanked Him for covering me with His peace and love, and He was happy that I was there with Him.
He loves spending time with us.
He then said, “We have entered the calm before the storm.”
I’ve heard this expression before. It means “a quiet or peaceful period before a period during which there is great activity or difficulty or a period of tranquility before chaos.”
Jesus continued, “Things are still being shaken all around the world – but it has not touched all of My children yet.
Your enemy has big plans to counteract My shaking – and this is the calm before that storm breaks loose.
The enemy will try to shake things even more – and even though he thinks he will cause more harm, it will have the opposite effect – for My children have had enough.
This storm the enemy is bringing will not be successful. It will fail, and it will backfire on him.
He is desperately trying to find ways to stop what I have commanded My army of angels to do – and he will not succeed.
Do not fear what takes place – do not fear what you see or hear in the coming days and months. For I know all of his plans, and he will suffer mightily in this battle.
My children – I love your celebration of Me. Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Bless those in need – for My heart is full of so much joy when I see you helping My children in need. My blessings will continue to flow to the ones that have a giving heart.
Enjoy this calm before the storm. Do not worry what tomorrow will bring.”
Matthew 6:34 – “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
“I know all of your tomorrows, and I have good plans for you.
I will not let the enemy carry out his evil plan of destruction and death. It will be stopped.
Do not fear. Stand on faith. Stand strong and trust in Me.
I am preparing each of you for the good and wonderful changes that are coming.
Pray for the lost, so they may know Me and join you in the celebration of victory that is coming.
And hold onto Me. Look to Me – for the storm is coming, and if you are focused on Me – you will not be surprised when it hits, and you will have no reason to fear because My peace will flood your heart and mind.
Be still. Stay steadfast in your focus on Me – I will make you strong.
In this calm before the storm, ask Me what you can do – and I will give you guidance and wisdom.
My peace I leave with you, My children. You are loved and cherished.
Stay focused on Me – I am here.”
Once again, Jesus asks us to keep our focus on Him. It must be important because He keeps reminding us.
So much revelation is coming from our Lord. He is speaking to His prophets about the many changes that are coming. We shouldn’t be surprised as the shaking continues, and we shouldn’t fear any of it.
Our God knows all of our tomorrows – and He wants to assure us we have nothing to fear.
We must keep praying, keep standing, keep trusting – and most definitely keep our focus on Him.
When the storm hits, we will hold steadfast to the One who will calm that storm. He is our rock. Amen.
I pray each of you enjoys your time with your loved ones this Christmas. Jesus loves our celebration of His birth – and He is worthy of us celebrating Him.
In His love,
