How To Come Through The Storm Successfully

by Hazel Straub

Overwhelmed by the storm?  Keep your focus firmly fixed on the Lord. He leads and guides you successfully, through the most narrow and dark places. Problems, however, arise when we take our eyes off him and worry about our circumstances. We begin to think about the “what ifs” and magnify the challenges.

The problem becomes our meditation and consumes our hearts, becoming our idol. It takes first place in our lives, instead of trusting and having faith in God. Anything that takes the focus off God is an idol.

Change your focus and praise and worship God!  Look up! Stop worrying and striving, instead rest in his strength and listen to what he is speaking to you. Then you will successfully come through the challenging season.

Lord, I passionately love you and I’m bonded to you,
for now you’ve become my power!
You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet,
like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress,
my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape,
my tower of rescue where none can reach me.
My secret strength and shield around me,
you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside,
always the champion of my cause.
All I need to do is to call to you,
singing to you, the praiseworthy God.
When I do, I’m safe and sound in you. (Psalm 18:1-3 TPT)

    • Father, may Cathy focus o you as she goes through this storm. Thank you for your favor for a new apartment for her and spraying for bug extermination. Favor in court on her traffic ticket. May she have the right paperwork from her physician to present to the judge. May the way for relocating work be clear. May peace of God like a river surround Cathy, in the name of Jesus. Amen
