Going Through The Storms Of Life
This Spring we have all watched on the TV, people who went through storms. Sometimes the storms were expected and planned for and other times the storms came in unexpected. One thing is for sure - we all go through storms.
In Mark 6:45, Jesus told His disciples to get into the ship and go to the other side - His disciples were about to sail into a storm. The reassuring thing is - He'll never send us on a trip or lead us in a direction that's we can't make. We may be frightened by the wave and the wind. Psalm 23:4, "though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me". He doesn't send you - He leads and sustains you. How reassuring.
Something else - when you can't see Him, He is still watching over you. Later in this same story, Jesus is on the mountaintop praying to the Father, but He saw them struggling. He sees our tears today. There is no situation that He can't handle.
Finally, before the storm is over, God will be glorified in it and your faith will grow stronger. Be encouraged today. Your storm will end - so rejoice - He is going to bring you through.
