Psalm 125:1 KJV
They that TRUST in the Lord SHALL BE as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.

I was watching a documentary about life in the ocean on TV one day. I was amazed at the large variety of fish and aquatic plants that dwell in the ocean. Watching such vividly colored creatures and plants caused a warmth in me as I deeply appreciated the “artistic” aspects of our Heavenly Father. I was lost in my reverie when suddenly the voice of The Spirit drew my attention to the strong waves of the sea. As my attention riveted to those heavy waves, I was amazed at the heights they could reach before crashing down again.

The force and power of those waves truly awed me for a while until I heard the voice of The Spirit again.

He said, “The waves are very impressive in their demonstration of Power and Force right?” Excitedly I answered “Yes Lord, they are”.
Then in a most quiet manner, He said, ” I want you to observe that rock in the ocean”.
Instantly I noticed there was a rock outcrop in the   the ocean. It looked so insignificant in the midst of the ocean vastness that you may not even notice it without careful observation. But now that my attention had been called to it, I watched it closely.
“What do you see or notice here?” The Spirit asked.
I suddenly observed that heavy wave after heavy wave of the ocean water rose high in the air, came tumbling down on the rock, submerged it until you couldn’t see the rock, only for the waters to roll off and the rock still remained standing. I was very excited at this and watched the scenario repeat itself again and again until once again the voice of The Spirit interrupted my reverie. “You and every other believer who TRUST in the Lord are represented by that rock”. Wow! That blew me away. My lightening fast mind began to race as I thought to myself and concluded that in that case, the heavy waves of the ocean represent challenges of life and satanic aggression. The Spirit told me I was right.

When you put your trust in the Lord, you become IMMOVABLE in the face of adversity and challenges. You trust in The Lord by hearing, understanding and doing His Word.

Matthew 7:24-25 KJV
Therefore whosoever HEARETH these sayings of mine, and DOETH them, I will liken him unto a WISE MAN, which built his house upon a ROCK: [25] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and IT FELL NOT: for it was founded upon a ROCK.

Beloved, don’t become engrossed in what the enemy is doing (raging and foaming like ocean waves), it will birth intimidation. Focus on becoming The Rock by trusting in God, it will surely birth steadfastness and quiet confidence.

This is your Divine year of EVERY GOOD THING, focus your gaze and expectation on receiving ONLY Good Things today and always.

Shalom o child of The King. Smile, it’s a good day to be blessed.
