Don't be alarmed when the winds pick up, and the waters churn. Don't be afraid when darkness threatens to wrap itself around you. The enemy is threatened by our heart connection. He is trying to intimidate you. Keep your focus on Me, not on him or his annoying schemes.
Because our hearts are connected, even in your darkest moments, your heart finds its way back to Me. When you're unsure, you know your place ... for you are a person of Presence. As you come to Me, and sit in My Presence, you find rest and shelter in the storm. In My Presence, you experience My love that uproots fear. In My Presence, you float in the calm of My peace. In My Presence, My joy bubbles up inside you. In My Presence, you know that your Heavenly Father is stronger than any situation that threatens to pull you under.
In My Presence, you see from My perspective. In My Presence, you hear My voice of truth. My voice that dispels the lies the enemy wants you to agree with as he tries to keep you from your purpose.
Child, I am in you, and you are in Me. Remember with Me, you are always MORE. More than your circumstances. More than the storm. Turn your focus to Me. Stay in My Presence and let worship become your warfare. For in this storm, I am your shield. Be still and rest. This battle is Mine.
And he has given us his Spirit within us so that we can have the assurance that he lives in us and that we live in him. I John 4:13 (TPT)
Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. 2 Chronicles 20:15b (NIV)
