Your Shelter in the Raging Storms
By Cathy Irvin
- Do you see the storm clouds on the horizon of your life?
Do you know that the Rescuer waits to take your hand so that you
are not blown away? There are so many trials, problems, and chaos
in families. You shake your head, throw up your hands, and the
only prayer you can really utter is “Help, Lord!”
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper
time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up (Galatians
Obeying the above Scripture is not always an easy task. Like
powerful winds that shake your house, you can feel uneasy and
begin to tire just from the anxiety of the unknown. That is what
it feels like in the daily hassles of life. Where is the peace
and rest? It is under the shadow of the Almighty. He is the secret
place, that shelter from all the storms.
When storms are raging in your life, you must grab a hold of
The Rock—that is Jesus. He is your refuge, your shelter,
the only secure, safe place. He is the bright ray of sunshine
in any storm that comes your way.
Think of the enemy as the storm and you are a ship out at sea
in the whirlwind of the storm. You are being tossed by the waves,
which represent anything that is thrown at you to bring you turmoil.
You see a light ahead from the lighthouse, who is Jesus your Rescuer,
to guide you to safety. You begin to sense the calm inside of
you. The fear leaves, and you have the needed hope to weather
this storm and reach your destination. There is no other way to
safety. You can’t fight the storms of life without the help
of the Lord. He shows you the way. He provides the Holy Spirit
Your life might be smooth sailing, but then there might be those
who try to make it rough waters. Don’t let any kind of storm
rock your boat. Call on the Lord for strength and support. Remind
yourself that He is the Captain of your ship.
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant
of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion
on you. “O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
I will build you with stones of turquoise, your foundations
with sapphires. I will make your battlements of rubies, your
gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones”
(Isaiah 54:10-12, NIV).
