The theme for Open Heaven Daily Devotional July 19 2023 is The Storm Stiller 3.
SCRIPTURE: “And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.” – Luke 7:13 (KJV)
The greatest storm of life is untimely death. The good news is that the Storm Stiller has power over death. The Bible says:
“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” – John 11:25-26
The story behind our memory verse is a pointer to the fact that Jesus indeed is the only One who can still all storms of life, including the most devastating one – death. There was a widow who was left with only one son. The storm of death had taken away her husband and returned to take her only son as well. As the child was being carried away for burial, the woman and the people bearing the corpse encountered the Storm Stiller. The Bible records that:
And he came and touched the bier; and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. – Luke 7:14
Beloved, I bring good news to you today: the storm of untimely death will not rage in your family, in Jesus’ name. As Jesus stilled the storm on the sea, so shall that devastating storm of death be stilled today, in Jesus’ name. Jesus is the only answer to the storm of death. The Bible says:
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil: And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. – Hebrews 2:14-15
Beloved, you do not need to be afraid of death because Jesus Christ has conquered death for us; because He lives, death shall have no power over us again. You do not need to join secret societies or engage in voodoo for fear of death. Romans 6:9 assures us that death has no control over Christ; if you’re His child, death can have no control over you either.
