Ocean saw you in action, God,
saw you and trembled with fear;
Deep Ocean was scared to death.
Clouds belched buckets of rain,
Sky exploded with thunder,
your arrows flashing this way and that.
From Whirlwind came your thundering voice,
Lightning exposed the world,
Earth reeled and rocked.
You strode right through Ocean,
walked straight through roaring Ocean,
but nobody saw you come or go.
That’s You Lord, mighty and powerful beyond anything on earth, mightier than any evil. Huge ocean in all its power and force fears you. You stalked right thru the roaring ocean, in forceful advancement
thru the turmoil without effort, brute force erupting through Your anger. Towering waves crashing into each other. Lightening exposing evil causing the earth to shake apart, thunderous voice, shattering fear.
You are so much more massive than the evil, but You have to work through us and that is the problem. You indwell us, but we seek peace and gentleness, while evil laughs at us. Lord, bring Your monumental force to work in us; raise up warriors like David’s mighty men; install us with Your power and authority to come against evil in our world. Stimulate our souls with courage to do Your will.
Sin is so blatant in our world today; how can we remain complacent? I am a lover of God, of Jesus Christ, hear me roar! Is anyone else sick of the evil ways that are becoming so pervasive?
What can we do? Do you know the power of prayer? Prayer gives God permission to bring His mightiness, His brute force against the enemy. God hates evil that is stealing His children’s hearts. Our prayers bring all His abilities into the battle. How did Gideon defeat a nation with only 300 men? How did Samson kill 1000 men with the jawbone of a donkey?
Judges 15:14-16 (NKJV)
When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.
15 He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey,
reached out his hand and took it,
and killed a thousand men with it.
God flowed through them with His strength; God fights evil with us, through us, but we must be willing to fight it! Yes, prayer brings God into the action. Stand up! Have courage to speak out. Seek God-power to fight the evil enemy and restore the earth to the Lord!
Does anyone else out there feel this call to respond to the evil cloaking our world with darkness?
