The other day I had a vision of a Captain at the wheel of his ship. The waves were swelling and crashing on the deck, tossing the ship so high and so low. Water was splashing up onto the deck in giant waves, the wind was spraying it into our faces. I was one of the crewmen and as I hung on for dear life I heard the Captain, as he fought the wheel to keep the ship on a steady course, “Keep to your stations!!!” And I feel like that’s what God is saying to us in these difficult times, “Keep to your stations. I’m at the wheel.” The waters are rough, as the storm rages against us, but He’s going to bring us safely to the destination He’s had planned for us all along…..
Psalm 107: 23-32 says, “Others went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the Lord, his wonderful deeds in the deep. For he spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men. Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the council of the elders.”
