Nahum: In the Whirlwind and the Storm

Nahum 1:3

Amplified Bible (AMP)
The Lord is slow to anger and great in power and will by no means clear the guilty. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet.
Friends, we give the evil one way too much credit for the "storms" in our lives. He does have a measure of power, but God has His way in the whirlwind and the storm!
When faced with a stormy situation, how do we react?  Just recently, a storm showed me that I still need to grow in various areas of my personality.  God reveals, not to shame, but for growth.  

It takes several years for one to mature physically.  Spiritual maturity takes as long as it takes until we look like Jesus.  I believe spiritual maturity takes a lifetime.  There are always areas in which we need to grow!  Pride tempts one to think he/she has grown up and that there is no more growing to be done!

Holy Spirit, please reveal the areas in which we need to mature.  I ask that only Your purposes are revealed in the storm and that we resist giving credit to the evil one for his attempts against us.  You are the God of ALL including the whirlwind and the storm.  All honor and praise and glory be to You Most High God, Who is our Daddy!!!  In the name of King Jesus, AMEN!!!
