There is a song whose lyrics say "when you walk through a storm hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the storm". Now this does not necessarily mean a literal storm but the occasional storms of life that come and threaten our stability and peace. These storms come in the form of medical diagnosis, lost job, unexpected deaths, unfaithful friends, loss of home, family problems, and a host of other things I am sure you could add to this list.
Matthew 8:23-27 says " Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him.Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown! He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Isaiah 43:2 says "When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you." Your strength is in the Lord God Almighty and He WILL get you through whatever you are going through. Get rid of wrong thinking.
Do not let the enemy bring worries and fears upon you. Keep your mind focused on Jesus and know He is in control.When you take your eyes off Jesus the storms of life seem to get bigger. You have to remember this too shall pass and soon there will be 'rainbows' again.
PRAYER: I am glad Lord that I can trust you with the storms that sometimes come in life. I know you love me and you have a wonderful plan for my life. Help me trust you. In Jesus name, amen.
