Emotional Storm

Emotional Storm

Are you broken-hearted? Are you depressed, hurt, discouraged, feeling rejected?  Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one, or is your wife or husband divorcing you?  Has your dream relationship just broken up? Lonely? Feeling there is no love in your life?  Are the storms of life buffeting you? Perhaps things have gone so bad you are even at a point where you are entertaining thoughts of suicide?

Surrender all your troubles to God:
“6  Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you.
7  Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] upon Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.” 1 Peter 5:6-7 [Amplified Bible]

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.”  Psalm 34:18 [New Living Translation]

Consider the following words that were earlier spoken by the prophet Isaiah and later personally confirmed by Jesus Christ:
“17  And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
18  ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me, To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19  To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.’
20  Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down.  And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
21  And He began to say to them, ‘Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’ ” Luke 4:17-21 [New King James Version] (My emphasis)

Another statement by Jesus: “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 [New King James Version]

Jesus also said:  “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33 [New King James Version]

“When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever.”  Proverbs 10:25 [New International Version]

It is at the point of your weakness that Jesus’ power is strongest.  Jesus said to the apostle Paul “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 [New King James Version]

By His healing power, your life will be restored [just as God gave a prophetic vision to the prophet Ezekiel that He would restore the nation of Israel to their land and out of their hopelessness while they were in exile in Babylon]:
“4  Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord!
5  This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look!  I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!
6  I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin.  I will put breath into you, and you will come to life.  Then you will know that I am the Lord.’ ”  Ezekiel 37:4-6 [New Living Translation]
Jesus said: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”  John 10:10 [New King James Version] The “thief” is reference to the devil.

Turn to Jesus and accept him as your Lord and Saviour and by faith you will experience the healing power of His love as confirmed by the above Scriptures. Cast all your cares (everything) on Jesus, once and for all!

How Do You Receive Christ into Your Life?

If you would like to receive the gift of salvation that God has for you today, make a decision in your own heart that you want to be forgiven of your sins and that you wish to turn your back on a sinful life. Believe in the Kingdom of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ [Mark 1:15]. The Bible says if you confess with your mouth (i.e. actually say it) that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, you will receive salvation [Romans 10:9-10]. Salvation is open to any human being who calls upon the name of the Lord [Romans 10:12-13].

If you want to get saved right now:

First silently read the text in the paragraph below and make sure you understand it. It is a confession prayer you can use to get born again this very moment.

If in your heart you agree with the content of the statement below then, read it again, but this time say it with your mouth out loud as you read it:

“Father, I thank You that you sent Your only Son, Jesus Christ, to take my sins and my punishment.  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead.  Today I confess that You are my Lord and my Saviour.  Father, forgive me of all of my sins.  Thank You Father that today, by Your grace, I am born again, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.”
