“Some of you set sail in big ships; you put to sea to do business in faraway ports. Out at sea you saw God in action, saw His breathtaking ways with the ocean: With a word He called up the wind—an ocean storm, towering waves! You shot high in the sky, then the bottom dropped out; your hearts were stuck in your throats. You were spun like a top, you reeled like a drunk, you didn’t know which end was up. Then you called out to God in your desperate condition; He got you out in the nick of time. He quieted the wind down to a whisper, put a muzzle on all the big waves. And you were so glad when the storm died down, and He led you safely back to harbor. So thank God for His marvelous love, for His miracle mercy to the children he loves.”
Psalm 107:23-30 (The Message Bible)
We are at a time when there are a lot of storms going on. For some of you, that may be a financial challenge in your business or a personal challenge you’re going through right now. The rain is falling, the wind is blowing, and the waves are rising. God can ride on the storms, rule over them, and stop them. God is victorious over the storm. He calms the storm. Be assured that all things work to your good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. God is for you. God is with you, and He will work in your situation. Just be sure that you build your life on Him. Check to see where your focus has been. Has it been on the storm or on Jesus? Put your trust in Him. He is a big God, much bigger than your storm. You’re going to make it for He will not fail you or leave you.
