Calm in the Midst of Utter Persecution and Spiritual Attacks

“Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
~ Psalm 107:28-30 (NKJV)

Coming from someone who was one of the worst “controllers” and “worriers”, I can’t begin to explain the pure rest and pleasure that comes from, in the midst of being attacked, resting solely in the God-ship of our Lord and Savior.  Knowing that He is in control and that the ultimate result will bring Him glory (if we let it), lends a brand new peace, joy, and sense of contentment, as Paul said (Philippians 4:11), in every situation.

I will not go into the details of these attacks, that is not necessary.  They have been in various forms on many fronts.  

Our enemy (satan) is a very cunning adversary.  He is not an incompetent opponent.  He knows (and uses) only the weapons that he knows we are most vulnerable to.  It’s only when we keep our focus on Christ, centered on glorifying and honoring Him, living a life that is pleasing to Him, that we can experience this calm, joy and peace.
