For I am the Lord your God,
(The Lord uses His proper Name, His national title here,
a name and title that speak of His eternal, majestic, awesome, self-existent nature,
as He graciously links Himself to us as our very God.
He chooses to call Himself our God,
and His Name reassures us that He speaks truth
in His earlier promises of providing for His people
and that we can hold Him to those promises of deliverance and provision.)
Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—
the Lord Almighty is His Name.
(This God Who makes this declaration to us
is the same God Who parted the unstoppable juggernaut of sea waves
and caused them to come to rest in a pool against a wall of water.
He quieted the waters and caused their roar to come to rest.
This God is the same God Who quiets the roaring storms in our lives
and makes them reside in a quiet pool with a walkway for us
to journey through them to the other side.
While the storm we face today may seem insurmountable,
even the wind and the waves obey His Voice,
so we can know today that any situation in our lives
has to yield to His command.)May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
