Over the past week, I spent five days in the house because the beautiful snow outside my home prevented me from going anywhere. When I say I was in the house, I mean that I did not go outside for any reason!
I gained many insights during those days and I would like to share this tidbit with you today.
Monday morning, I desired a change of scenery so I peeked outside to look in my backyard. Not only did I get a different view, but I was also greeted with a gentle reminder of God's faithfulness.
The clinging vine that provided shade during the summer was still there in spite of the snow.
The storm did not remove it.
The storm did not change its appearance.
The storm did not destroy it.
As you face the storms in life, continue to cling to the One who sustains you. He is the Master of the Universe and there is not a storm that has ever raged that was too much for Him to handle.
"When He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a violent storm arose on the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves; but Jesus was sleeping. And the disciples went and woke Him, saying, “Lord, save us, we are going to die!” He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was [at once] a great and wonderful calm [a perfect peacefulness].The men wondered in amazement, saying, “What kind of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?” Matthew 8:23-27 AMP
Your storm may be raging now and the strong winds may tempt to sway you.
Trust God to speak peace as you rest in Him. You will not be destroyed because you were created to endure.
You will survive this storm!
