The Storms of Life

 

Psalms 107:28-29

28. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

29. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

 

When storms occur in other towns or states, a line worker will often drive hours or even days. When we arrive, some systems are battered beyond recognition. The storm will take out restaurants, hotels, and other comforts of life. The local people are discouraged. The line worker will sleep in his truck and eat cold food to get the job done. But if you have worked enough storms, you begin to understand. The nature of the storm is destroying everything in its path. Take the normal and make it abnormal, or to cause hardship where people begin to lose hope. But as a line worker, if you have been in the business long enough, you have seen it all. We are called to help those in need; it’s a test of endurance.

 

There will be times when you feel like you can’t stay awake another hour. The words of the psalmist remind us to call upon the Lord in times of troubles. There have been many times, whether you knew what you were saying or not, that you call on God.  

He can make the storm calm down and give you strength to endure till the job is done. Some of the best reading in the bible is the book of Psalms; it’s a collection of songs written in times of troubles. The Lord can calm any storm in life. All we have to do is know that our help cometh from the Lord. Psalms 121:2 states; “my help cometh from the Lord, which made the heaven and earth.” No matter what the storm, God can calm the winds, rain, and the situations.

 

Prayer:

Lord, I come before you, to calm the storms of my life. I feel battered and I need rest, so that I can continue. I know that no matter what storm hits my life that you can bring me through. I need your help; just as you helped the saints in the Bible. Without your help to calm the storm, the storm will overtake me. Give me rest and peace to make it through each day.  Jesus, you are my rock and my salvation through this life. Guide me through each storm in my life, in Jesus name I pray.
