The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever. The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:10-11
A flood by definition is “an overflowing of a large amount of water beyond its normal confines, especially over what is normally dry land.” Have you ever experienced your own “flood” per say? An overflowing of a large amount of something… a situation, circumstance, beyond your ability to control especially in something or someone that is most important to you, and this “flood” is just NOT how things should normally be!? But what sets the standard for what should “normally be”? Really I deserve hell and He saved me from that and promised me heaven but He also promised that this world would have trouble.
He does not allow “floods” that He does not have complete control of and victory over. He also will not bring “floods” that I’m not ready to walk through, WITH Him. Am I walking WITH Him, really? Am I receiving the strength and peace He’s holding out? Or am I fighting Him because “It’s just not the way I want things to go-it’s not fair!” He could say the cross wasn’t fair. He also wished things could have been done differently but He submitted to the Fathers will, as I should because Jesus sees things I don’t and understands things I can’t.
Gen. 1:2.6-10 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
(He is right there with you in your deep – He won’t let you drown.)
And God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.”
(Trust Him for the strength to breathe – He makes a space between the waters for air.)
So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse “sky”. And there was evening, and there was morning – the second day. And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.”
(He walks on water so when we feel shaken with no place to stand, we stand on Him our Rock, our dry ground, that can not be shaken! Jesus took the cross for us so in Him we have eternal life and nothing can shake us!)
And it was so. God called the dry ground “land”, and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
(He can work all things for good even our worst “flood” if we’ll choose submit to His will, trust His way, and stand on the Rock that will not be tossed by the wind and the waves of our flood. He is King forever, enthroned above your flood and has all the strength and peace you’ll need to make it ALL the way through, alive in Him!)
