“The storm that was sent to break you, is going to be the storm that God uses to make you.”
The storms of life. Although there are many, we must journey through them. Every storm is unique and different, yet the God who sees us through is always the same.
God has always used storms. Those times in history where only His intervention was the key to finding one’s way through.
Think about it. God parted the Red Sea for Moses. God closed the mouths of the lions who faced Daniel. He brought the walls of Jericho tumbling down for Joshua. He cured lepers. He raised Lazarus from the dead. He gave us a Savior, His Son Jesus, through the miraculous virgin birth through an ordinary women named Mary, and the list goes on
There isn’t a storm you and I might be facing today that is out of God’s control. Isaiah 60:22 promises us … “When the time is right, I the Lord, will make it happen.”
One day the storms will be gone, and the weight of the last few days, weeks, months, and even years will be lifted. You can’t control when that will be, but you can be certain God will intervene. All we can do is stay strong and trust God at His word.
Let me use Psalm 145;8 as my closing prayer …
“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.”
Your Anchor will hold … in spite of the storms!
