It was pouring rain earlier today. Have you ever felt like you have a flood of difficulties and problems in your life? Maybe that storm is emotional, financial, health-related or relational. Maybe it is the stress and demands of family life or the burden of loneliness.
Sometimes in life we magnify our problems and minimize our God. We think and feel like the storms in life are bigger than our God. The $1 billion in damage from our storm looks monumental when we see God as a quarter; we think there’s no way God can repair the damage. But it is much the opposite. God is bigger. He even conquered the storm of death.
So as you are going through the storms of life, don’t forget about the storm stiller, your Savior Jesus. Remember what Jesus did for the apostles in the storm-tossed boat. “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” [Jesus] got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm (Mark 4:38:39).
Whether you are going through a storm or not, Jesus is with you!
