The Bible tells us that in this life we are going to face troubles and all of us have found that to be true. The goal is stay calm and maintain our confidence when we are encountering storms in our life no matter how fierce they may be. The longer a storm drags on in our lives our hopes begin to sink but we must make the decision to keep moving forward because giving up is not an option.
The challenges we face in life are to drive us closer to God and the safest place to be in this world is right in the middle of God’s will for your life. It’s the safest place but it does not mean that it is the easiest, but God has promised never to leave or forsake us and we have the promises in His Word to stand upon. Storms are not meant to scare us but to save us, perhaps even save us from ourselves. It’s been said that when you don’t see God’s plan, just trust His hand! The key is you must go through your storm and learn from it and not look for a way to get around it. Only in the storm will we see the power of God. Isaiah 43:2 says “when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.”
You are going to make it through the difficulties you face; it’s just a matter of time and it’s a matter of trust. There is much God wants to do through you, so it’s important that you trust God, stand on HIs Word and never give up.
