"We all dread the turbulent storms of life'
God is in control of the storms of life, that we all go through at one time or another. As long as our lives are going good, we don't worry, but as soon as the storm of life appear,we get worry and sometimes angry. We must understand that the storms of life happens to all of us. We believe that God is in control as long as life is going good, but having faith doesn't exempt us from things happening in our lives and that means the stormy weather too. God will direct the winds of the storm to be blown your way so you can end up where God want you to be. It's easy for us to ask why is this happening to me, but every storm has a direct purpose in our lives and we never know the answer until later. The storm may have been meant for our harm, but God will use it in our favor for our good. We should use our faith not to try to pray away the storms that come to us, but accept that God is working in the storm to secure our destiny.
Sometimes we all face different storms of life not because we were doing something wrong, but because we were doing something right. We must be assured that God never allows a storm to keep us from our destiny. what it comes down to is, we have prayed, kept the faith and fought against the storm and nothing has change, so, we need to relinquish the control of the storm and let God handle it because he is already in control of the storm, he using it to make us a better person. Sometimes, things don't turn out the way that we hoped for, but we have to let go and let God handle it. When our enemies form weapons against us to harm us, God will work it out in our favor, because no weapons will prosper against us. God always use the wind of our storm to blow us where he wants us to be.
The storms of life starts out as a test but it becomes our testimony of God's goodness. God always use the storms of life to increase us and not harm us. We have to believe and know that everything that happens in the storm of life is to bring us to our destiny. When we know that God is in control of the storm, we don't worry or fret about the outcome, because the God we serve is working everything out in our favor. We must know that God only want good for us and our loved ones. If you have read your bible, then you know that God has brought many people out of the storms of life, lets talk about a few: He brought Daniel out of the den of ferocious and hungry lions without a scratch, He saved Job from his troubles and blessed him twofold. He brought Meshach,Shadrach and Abiendigo out of the fiery furnace unscathed, and let us not for get Paul and Silas that was locked up in jail, God broke their shackles and release them from jail.
These are just a few of the wonderful miracle that God performed when everyone was going through their storms of life. These people were going through storms that was dark and bleak, and it didn't look like there was any hope or help in sight , but God changed that for everyone that had enough faith and belief that God would rescue them, and he did. We all must remember the storms of life happens so we can be a blessing to help someone else. In our time of stormy weather, if we find it in our heart to help someone else, God takes that into consideration and helps us more. We know that he is in control of the storm and we never know when the winds are going to blow in our direction and be a blessing to us because we're using our storm to bless someone else.
God never allows a storm , if it's going to keep us from our destiny, so we need to quit fight and release the storm so God can deliver us from it's power. In some of our storms, we can see the end, but in some other storms there seem to be no end in sight, but we must never give up to defeat because is in the center of our storm. When the storms of life come through and God blow the wind your way, he is blowing you where he want you to be and it might be a physical place, but a spiritual place, where he will fix things . The most important thing to remember is that God works on his time schedule and not on ours, because his time and our time is different. I do know if you have prayed about it, held on to your faith and are doing the right things in his sight, then the only thing you can do is to let go, believe and let God handle the rest.
Acts 27-14-15: But not long after there arose agianst it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.
15: And when the ship was caught and could not bear up into the wind,we let her drive.
