What do you do when you find yourself in the middle of a storm? Sometimes in this walk, we have our ups and downs. Life will be going great and then all of a sudden things take a turn for the worse. Sometimes you hear God speaking; sometimes there is nothing but silence. Everyone’s storm is going to be different, but there is one consistent thing in them all, and that is God.
The crazy thing is that when we are in the middle of a storm, sometimes it is hard to see or feel God, but you just have to know that he is there. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God (a clause). It is easy to focus on the rain coming down and the thunder and lightning. But can you see God?
It is time to really get to know God on a whole new level. Realize that God is with you in every situation. Acknowledge him and make everything about him. Thank him for waking you up. Thank him for the storm. Thank him for the ups and the downs. Thank him for giving you another chance to say thank you. Your storms are not going to feel good. You will think you are in it by yourself. Oftentimes it will stir up emotions that you never knew you had. And it’s okay to cry. Just don’t let your tears turn into depression. It is okay to get angry, just don’t let your frustration become bitterness. It’s okay to be let down, just don’t let your disappointments become discouragement.
There is nothing going on in your life that God doesn’t know about. If he hasn’t brought you out yet, that means you still have a future. God wants all of the glory in your life and believe me when I say, he will get it! Be encouraged and hang in there. Ups and downs are just another way to make sure you stay balanced in God! And when you find yourself in the middle of a storm, remember to speak to God, and let God speak to your storms!
Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
