BE STILL ON YOUR STORMS-SERIES 4
(Look beyond the storms)
MARK 4:35 -41
In this fourth series of Be still in your storms, we need to understand that storms are just temporary.
Whenever we are in the midst of problems, difficulties, and tribulations, God has always promised for every situation we are in.
Our God is faithful and He will not allow the attack of storms in our life to consume us but rather this will strengthen us.
“LOOK BEYOND OUR EVERY STORM”
Knowing that God is our present help, consider that storms are just one of the stages in our journey.
We need to understand those storms are just temporary.
Your relationship problem is temporary.
Our debt is just temporary.
Our being jobless is just temporary.
Never so conscious about the storm that we forgot that God is in our boat.
The disciples were so terrified that the boat is being filled up with water, but don’t look at the water that fills your boat. Look on your God who is with you in that boat.
Never so focused on our circumstances that we forgot our destination.
Don’t so focus on the difficulties that we forget the promises.
Don’t magnify the things that are bad that we negate the presence of God.
Don’t be so focused on your sickness that you forgot that our God is the Healer.
Never so overwhelmed by your enemies that we forgot that He is our refuge, a present help in times of trouble.
Remember that the God we serve can defy the law of nature.
Look beyond our storm, because in every dark cloud and gale of wind is a clear day waiting at the end.
It does not mean that the clouds are too dark and that there is no sun on the other side.
In every storm, there will always be a rainbow afterward.
“THERE ARE PROMISES IN THE STORM”
The question may lurk in our minds “Why do we still encounter the fierce storm when God is in our boat?” Is it not possible to continue our journey without any storm since God is with us in our expedition?
All of us are not exempted from all the trials and difficulties even when we have Jesus in our boat.
Why there is still sickness? Why still lost our job? An endless question of why.
There are no violent storms that cause us to fear knowing that our God is so near.
Isaiah 43:2 says that when you pass through the deep waters I will be with you, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you…..
In Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Because God does not promises us the obvious. Promises are given where you have the tendency to doubt.
Isaiah 4:10 says So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
God has always specific promises for every storm we are going through.
Never doubt Him in your storms, for we can always rely on Him
May you see His promises in whatever storms you are into,
