Just Tell the Storm: Go Away, God Surrounds Me (Devotional)

 malik_braun_3870656061_7b4a196f19_b Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him.  And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves.   But He was asleep.   Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us!    We are perishing!”    But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?”  

Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.    So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?” [Emphasis added]

Matthew 8:23-27 (New King James Version)

Lyrics (excerpts) from “I Told The Storm” (Audio, YouTube)

  • Greg O’Quin ‘n Joyful Noyze
  • This classic Gospel song brings Jesus’ storm-calming miracle to life.  
  • What are you going to tell your next storm?   Go away, God surrounds me!   I’m safe in his arms.

Even though your winds blow.
I want you to know.
You cause me no alarm.
Cause I’m safe in his arms.

I command you to move today.
Because of faith, I have a brand new day.
The sun will shine, and I will be okay.
That’s when I told the storm!

Death can’t shake me!
Jobs can’t make me!
Bills can’t break me!
Disease can’t shake me!
You can’t drown me!
Cause my God surrounds me!
That’s what I told the storm!

Got a storm in your life?  Tell it:

“I command you to move today
Because of faith, I have a brand new day.
The sun will shine, and I will be okay.”
