. We need not be afraid but I believe it is wise to be ready when the storms of life threaten us with all its uncertainties. We all need to hear the distant thunder and prepare. With God on our side we have nothing to fear.
The Distant Thunder
There is a great storm coming,
Hear the sound of distant thundering?
Prepare your house; is it built on foundation strong?
Are things in order where it belongs?
When the high winds come are you ready?
Can you withstand the blows hard and steady?
Is there unfinished business you need to attend?
Have you shut up the house with the enemy within?
Is there a good supply food and water to drink that’s pure?
Has your larder been kept clean and secure?
The storm is coming…. make a foundation check
Have you asked Jesus to forgive you and to save you yet?
If so you must renounce the dirty things that stain,
Do not allow any known sin to remain.
For the enemy will steal away every ounce of joy and peace within,
And will taint the good food and water with sin.
Guard the doors with prayer in the power of Jesus’ name.
The Holy Spirit will assist so your life securely remains.
The storms are real but prepared hearts will survive.
For the love and power of Jesus keeps them alive.
Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
