Hello Overcomers of CCAS,
Read Psalm 46.
1 Kings 18:44 says: "Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand."
Many unique applications can be drawn from familiar scripture passages. For example, an unknown author wrote, "It is well if we can see the form of a Man's hand in every cloud that arises in our lives. It is good if we can discern the figure of our Lord, the mighty Maker of Heaven and earth, in every shadow that spreads it's wings above us. For then our clouds will leave abundant blessings in their wake, and our dark days will reveal the glory of God in all His protecting and comforting power."
A Christian woman was always so bright and cheerful that everyone wondered at her joyous spirit. "But sister," said a friend, "you must have some clouds in your life."
"Clouds?" she replied. "Why of course. If there were no clouds, where would the showers of blessing come from?"
This saint of God, like the poet of old, had learned to "trace the rainbow through the rain."
Many believers reach the place of unquestioning faith in Jesus and can sing Joseph Gilmore's hymn with assurance:
Sometimes, 'mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom,
By waters still, o'er troubled sea,
Still 'tis His hand that leadeth me.
In every cloud that darkens our horizon we may discern the nail-pierced hand of the Man of Calvary. Surely the One who died for us can be trusted to lead and protect us, even in the worst storms of our life.
Victory and perfect peace will be yours if by faith you look for the mighty hand of God in your cloud.
This has been an Overcomer's moment. God Bless.............Howard
