The Elijah List: Have you felt like giving up when the storms come? Read this word from Edie Bayer who talks about her decision not to quit and go right through a storm while quoting God’s promises, as well as commanding the storm what to do, all while she was driving!
Excerpt from The Elijah List:
At that moment, I made a quality decision: I was going through this storm. I was pressing through and I was not stopping! I started to quote Scripture and speak what I knew to be true. I commanded the clouds to dissipate, the storm to divide and let me pass through peacefully, without even a drop of water on me! I commanded the storm to be still. I commanded the clouds to dissipate while I repeated the promises of God: that He would always be with me; that He would never leave me; that He had gotten me through other storms in my life and that He would get me through this one, too!
I had made the decision to press through, to press forward, to keep pressing on, even in the face of certain adversity; even in the full knowledge that I was headed into a storm of unknown proportions. I just kept on praying and speaking the promises and the truths of God. Sure enough, after a while the clouds started to lighten up and disperse! The storm clouds began to get lighter and lighter as I continued to command the elements and speak the promises of God, and before too long I was on the other side.
