What are storms of life? They are adversities. Life sends rough winds of job loss, financial hardships, rebellious children, or any situation that causes hurt, disappointment, shame, or misfortune. Storms often hit us unexpectedly. We are left wondering from where did they originate and why are they happening.
Adversity happens as a result of our own actions or lack thereof, is caused by the actions of others, Satan, or the Lord. Despite the reason for the storm, the Lord will use the storms for our good.
If we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus while going through the storm, He will give us peace in the midst of it.
"Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”
But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm." Matthew 8:23-26 NKJV
