Psalm 46:1-3 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
God doesn’t promise that there will be no storms. He is better than that. God promises to show up in the storms.
The Apostle Paul was shipwrecked (Acts 27). Perhaps you know what that feels like on some level. Then Paul was put under lock and guard for two years. But rather than crawl into the corner, he proceeded to write five books of the New Testament.
Too many of us are waiting for our circumstances to change before we rise to the greatness of God’s plan. It would be splendid if God took you from the storm. (He will do that at the right time.) But this promise is even greater – the God of the universe will actually meet you in the storm.
Recovery Step: When your circumstances are a wreck, you don’t have to be.
