Zechariah 10:4-5 NLT] From Judah will come the cornerstone, the tent peg, the bow for battle, and all the rulers. They will be like mighty warriors in battle, trampling their enemies in the mud under their feet. Since the LORD is with them as they fight, they will overthrow even the enemy's horsemen.
Have you ever slept in a tent? It can be quite exciting in the wind and rain. I have, and was glad that the tent was tied down well to the ground so it would not be blown away.
Life can be compared to a journey; and the various times in life are the places where we stop to make camp. Some of those times we are lying on the grass enjoying the sunshine or we can be cooking supper at the camp fire as the stars twinkle in the dark sky. But sometimes on this journey of life storms appear from nowhere. This is when we need to make sure the tent is held firm. Jesus is the tent peg who holds our tent firm in the storm.
I have faced storms. I have known that the only way I survived is because Jesus has been with me the whole time. He has kept me safe in the storm by holding me together. Knowing His love helped me deal with grief. Knowing His healing power and transformation has set me free from hurts from the past.
Whatever storm that threatens to blow your tent down, whatever enemy attacks your peace; know you can have the victory. Look at what it says in the scripture; “They will be like mightywarriors in battle, trampling their enemies in the mud under their feet. Since the LORD is with them as they fight, they will overthrow even the enemy's horsemen.”
Because Jesus is your tent peg, you will survive the storm. Not only that, but you will know what it is to thrive and to have victory over every enemy that threatens you.
