Jesus The Powerful Storm Rider
Brethren the storms of life do come, but you are not alone! God Reveals Himself in the Midst of the Storm! (Matthew 14:32-33).Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path. No one gets a free pass from the storms of life. What separates us, is how we respond to these disturbances. Remember life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass it’s about learning how to ride the storm as an eagle does (Isaiah 40:31).
Every storm that we face changes us! Since in the middle of difficulties caused by this storm of life lies countless opportunities. So always we should love our storms; since they bring more than rain, they bring sunshine and rainbows in our lives. A sailor is distinguished by the number of storms he has overcome (the David’s, the Elijah’s of today). If you waste time looking at the storm, you might miss the sunshine. So, do something i.e. pray, fast, worship.
Storms don’t need you to get stronger, but you need storms to get stronger in your life! When you panic when the storm comes, you increase the power of the storm! Brethren remember tough times like today never last, but tough people (prayer warriors) do. If you watch carefully the storms of your life, there you will often see your own mistakes as the architect of these storms! It is only during a storm that we can knows how spiritually strong we are, it is better to endure a storm than to run to the wrong shelter.
When the wind blows, a stubborn tree breaks, but an intelligent one bends so let use wisdom at all times. So be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
When storms come your way remember that you know the master of the wind. Sometimes God puts you in a very tight places Alone, because he needs you to realise you do not need anybody but him. Grapes must be crushed to make wine. Diamonds form under pressure. Olives are pressed to release oil. Seeds grow in darkness. Whenever you feel crushed, under pressure, pressed, or in darkness, you’re in a powerful place of transformation and transmutation. Trust the process. Trust God. I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship with Jesus inside it.
