A wonderful old hymn says, " He gives us peace in the midst of a storm"
In life we face all kinds of storms. We usually think of the personal "storms: that come our way ... financial worries.... problems in our marriage or family... illness... the betrayal of a family member of friend... and so on.
But we face other kinds of storms that threaten to engulf us also.... storms of materialism... storms of secularism... storms of moral degeneracy... storms of injustice... terrorism, and war.
Do you remember the violent storm that came upon Jesus and His disciples one night on the Sea of Galilee? His disciples grew panicky ... but Jesus stayed fast asleep. He was at peace because He knew God was in control. He was at peace also because He was sovereign over the storm and He knew it would banish at His Word..... "Peace be still!" (Mark 4:39)
His Word still calms the turmoil in our lives. Is some storms making you fearful...anxious... or tense today? Stay close to Jesus! For His Word brings peace!
Hugs...Love... & Blessings
