Today's a new day and the storms that recently passed through my life have now come to an end…and the sunshine of God's presence shines brightly once more. These storms that I once walked through, took me through valleys deep and mountains high; but one thing I can truly say today…is that God was with me all the way.
Many times while walking through a storm, we can become so caught up in the high winds and pouring rain of circumstance; that before we realize it, we have lost all hope in making it through these storms; but God is reminding me of His words in Genesis 28:15, which says…"I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” These are the kind of words we need to connect with, while walking through a harsh and fierce storm of circumstance. Just knowing that we are not alone…and that God has control over the storm, can give us a calm assurance that everything will be just fine.
As I look back on my life, I see many instances where I felt as if the storms that I faced at the time, were going to take me down and bring destruction upon me; but that was only because I had gotten caught up in the storm. Think of it this way…if a storm was headed your way…and you constantly looked out the window to study what was going on around you; then I would think that after focusing on the harsh winds, rain and dark clouds; that you would find that after some time…you would begin to fear the storm. In a similar way…we can easily find ourselves caught up in the storms of life…to the place where we forget God is there…and before we realize it, we begin to feel as if God has forsaken us, while all along…we are the ones who have left Him…to attach ourselves to a stormy circumstance.
The encouragement that I would like to leave with you today; is to not focus so much on what is going on around you…for moments such as these will only draw you further into the storm. The thing we need to do; is to let go of the storm and take hold of the master of the storm…One who can walk us through the storm and shield us from the elements of the storm. I truly believe that once we choose to handle a stormy situation in this way; that this is when we will have peace and a calm assurance that these moments will pass…as once more, God begins to lead us back into the sunshine of a brand new dawn.
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS know that God is there…waiting to help and guide you through the storms of life!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
