"The Sun will come out!"

Storms will come. Storms will make you…they will break you. Storms are not good, but they will work out for your good. Rom. 8:28 Says, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (NLT)

Each and everyone one of us has been in a storm in our lives. It may have been a little drizzle or maybe it was a thunderstorm, or perhaps a hail storm.  We may have forgotten our umbrella.  We may have not wanted to get wet, so we waited inside until we saw the car pull up. We may have wanted to stay home during the storm. Sometimes storms are necessary to clear things out, grow things, or cause us to just sit back and wait the storm out.  It will allow us to gain patience.  Eventually a storm will stop. Yes, storms do stop!  They don’t last always. 

When Noah built the Ark in obedience to the Lord, it was built to withstand the storm that was coming. Although the skies looked clear, the storm was inevitable. Sometimes the storms are so severe that the strongest people are afraid they are not going to survive.  It may be a Occupational storm, a Financial storm, a Relational storm, a Spiritual storm, or an Emotional storm.   John 15:5 reads, I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. That gives me peace to know that whatever storm I have to go through, something has to grow from it.

We have the opportunity to experience a new level in God that will ultimately change our life!  God doesn’t promise the storms won’t come, but He does promise us protection during the storm. Usually after a severe storm, a rainbow will appear in the sky.  Genesis 9:14 reads, Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. That’s hope!! Knowing that God has a covenant with us even when it doesn’t seem like it makes me praise him through the storm! He’s in it everybody!! He just wants us to look up with confidence and trust him no matter what! So don’t look at the storm with fear, let faith look at the Savior to keep our eyes on Him during the storm. –Ms. Redeemed
