You’re Going to Get Through This Storm!

December 04, 2018

“I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.” Ac 27:25

On his way to Rome, Paul went through a devastating storm. His story teaches us three valuable lessons: (1) Your disobedience can cause a storm. Because the captain wouldn’t heed Paul’s warning, he lost his ship, his cargo, and almost his life. Your disobedience can cause a storm in your health, your finances, your family, and your career. God doesn’t preface His commandments by saying, “If you feel like it, do this.” No. He means what He says and He intends it for your good, so pay attention! (2) You’re not alone in the storm. God is with you and He’s watching over you. Paul said: “There stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, saying, Fear not…God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God” (vv. 23-25). With God on board, there’s not a storm powerful enough to take you under. (3) When you stand on God’s promises, you have His authority. Paul may have looked like a prisoner, but in reality he had more power than the captain. Though bound in chains, he was the freest man on the ship. You see, when you’ve heard clearly from God, you can handle any situation because His Word says: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper…every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord” (Isa 54:17). So the word for you today is: Keep trusting God and He will bring you through this storm!

I needed to see this. I am going through a storm as we speak and am believing that God is going to get me out of it. I lost my house a few weeks ago. I have until December 11th to find a place for my kids and I to move into. I have no friends or family around to help. I do not have enough money and no credit which has made it difficult for me to rent. It is also getting getting extremely cold. All along I have always thought that I was independent and was in control of my situation. I never accepted help from anyone, I have always been the one to render help to others. Right now I have no other option but to surrender everything to God. As dire as my situation, I am thankful that it has happened otherwise I would not have learned all I have learned these past few months if everything was going smoothly. I have read the Bible in its entirety, prayed, repented and accepted God as my Lord and Savior. As desperate as my situation is, I find myself calm and hopeful. I had a dream where God told me everything will be fine. Some days have been better than others. One day I am all panicked and the next I am stronger and patiently waiting. Today started rough and I have been praying without ceasing. I was led to Pastor Franklin's channel and it was exactly what I needed to keep me sane and trusting in God through the storm. I am praying for a miracle. It is a miracle in itself that I am still standing under the circumstances. The old me would have gone crazy by now.I am waiting patiently for the Lord and I am trusting Him completely.
