Storm Stories

November 12, 2012

“And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.” (Acts 27:44 KJV)

Everyone of us have a storm story. Every one of us has and will face hardships. Everyone of us have had to float in on broken pieces just to make it to shore. All of us are survivors of life.

Storms Will Come

When the storm comes it’s not as important as what goes on around you as it is what goes on inside of you. Because we are born again from above by the blood of jesus Christ, peace lives inside of us.

That peace gives us the wherewithal to grab a hold of those broken pieces floating all around us and make it to shore.

I’m a firm believer that that if we live in the peace of God, we won’t panic when trouble arises. Instead we will always find the avenue of escape that God has prepared for us. Remember, He will not allow us to be tempted above that which we are able. And He will always make a way of escape (1 Corinthians 10:13)

I hope today that if you find yourself caught up in a storm that you will remember the Greater One lives in you.

And if you don’t know Him, that you will reach out to Him right now and find that peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7.

What you posses in Jesus must be accessed.  Especially in the hardest of times.  It’s not enough to know you are a new creation in Christ.  It’s not enough to know that the blood of Jesus cleanses you from all sin.  It’s not enough to know you have been raised up to sit with Jesus in Heavenly places (Eph 2:6).  These things must be entered into by faith.

There are literally thousands of promises made to the sons and daughters of God in scripture, but many of us live far below those promises because we fail to confess those promises over our lives on a daily basis.

Then when we get into a crisis we are really in trouble.  Why?  Because the problems loom bigger in our lives than the finished work of Christ.  We’ve spent so little time in the Word that we are more full of doubt and unbelief than we are the Word of God.

Prepare for the next storm now.  Decide today to meditate on God’s Word until it flows out of your belly like rivers of living water (John 7:38).  If you do, you’ll find that the next storm is not as big as your God; giving you a definite edge on the enemy of your soul!
