When storms hit my life, be it in my marriage, my work, with my extended family or in my health, rather than the storm overtaking me, I will speak to the storm and command it to cease. I am learning the importance of not allowing storms to capsize my emotions. I will not become angry, or bitter or stressed over storms, I will speak to them in the name of Jesus and watch the waters become still. I will even learn to rest in the midst of them, as I hand the care of them over to Jesus. Storms may come but I will not be overcome by them.
Luke 8:22-25 (NIV) One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger. 24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
