Beloved in the Lord,
For the next two weeks, we are going to talk about, Growing Through The Storms Of Life.
What is storm of life?
May the Holy Spirit minister deeply into our hearts, the message He has for us today.
SCRIPTURE: “Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke Him and said to Him, Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?. ( Mark 4:38 NIV)
A storm of life, is any event or occurrence that has the potential or capacity of derailing your progress in life. Example accident, loss of a loved one or job, failure, sickness, divorce, natural disasters like fire, flood, earthquake etc.
Storms of life are inevitable. Every person whether a Christian or non-Christian goes through some kind of storm in life. Storms are part of life. They are not the norm, but they are a necessary part of life. Through God’s wisdom storms provide the needed balance for the weather of our planet; fierce tropical storms are necessary to provide a balance between the heat of the tropics and the frost of the polar regions.
In like manner, our Father has designed storms for our lives to provide a balance in our pilgrimage and growth in grace. A Christian should acknowledge that God is the sovereign Lord of the mountain and the valley; He is the Lord of fair weather and foul. He is the Lord of the storm. As sure as night follows day, a sovereign God has designed storms in the life of His children with a higher view than His children often perceive. For a child of God who is convinced that God loves him and is sovereign, every storm is seen simply as another day of walking with Jesus and discovering more of His tender love.
