NO STORM CAN STOP ME 1
Main text: Psalms 34:19 – “Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all”
Nahum 1:7 – “The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble, and he knoweth them that trust in him”
The concept “storm of life” could be viewed in many perspectives such as trials, tests, temptation and tribulations. Storms could be associated with periods of difficulty, challenges, and unpleasant situations in life etc.
Storms in life are inevitable. Everyone, Christians inclusive encounter various kinds of storms at one point or the other in their lives.
These storms which could be sickness, poverty, joblessness, disappointment, affliction, depression, opposition, persecution, oppression, financial crises, infertility or insecurity blown against us attempting to wreck our lives. Nevertheless, whatever the storm that blows our ways we should not be perturbed. We should have our hope and eyes focused on our ever present helper in times of trouble (Ps 46:1) “God is our refuge and strength, a present help in trouble”
No storm should be allowed to blow us out of our track to destiny.
Let us know that all storms are meant to try out the genuineness of our love for God. The gospel of John at chapter 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
THE SUREST PLACE OF SECURITY IS IN THE LORD
