There are always reasons to get upset and be stressed out. The storms of life come to every person, you are not unique or too good. No matter how good a person you are, youâ€™re going to have some â€œrainâ€ in your life. When these storms come, a lot of people use their faith to try to control their circumstances, but Iâ€™ve found itâ€™s better to use my faith to control myself in the midst of my circumstances.
If we can just remain stable in the storms of life and stay in peace, we give God permission to act on our behalf. Remember, God never said that we wouldnâ€™t have difficulties, but He did promise we could have peace in the midst of the storms.
Today, when you face adversities, one of the most powerful things you can do is simply stay calm. When you are at peace, you are displaying your faith in God. By your actions, youâ€™re saying, â€œGod, I know Youâ€™re still on the throne. I know Youâ€™re bigger than this problem.â€ So keep the peace in the midst of your storms today. Trust that He is working behind the scenes. Keep your heart open to Him, because soon He will deliver you!
â€œ…he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.â€Â (Matthew 5:45, NLT)
Yahweh, thank You for peace in the midst of the storms of life. Father, I choose to hold my peace knowing that You are working for me. God, I trust You, I trust Your timing, and I trust that You are working everything together for my good because You love me, in Christâ€™ name! Amen.
