Praising God in the Storm
What storm are you in right now? It can be something big or small, anything that is hurting you and tearing you down. Maybe something that is turning you away from God. Whatever you are dealing with, whether it is stress from school and/or work, or something as serious as a loss in the family, you are not the only one battling rough times.
We are always in a storm, coming out of one, or about to go in one.
So what do we do?
We hold onto God even tighter than before, and trust Him with all our strength.
God promises to never give us something more than we can handle. Although something might seem extremely hard, and you feel like you have no other option than to give in, God says:
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13
Also, God promises to be right there with us in times of trouble:
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. – Isaiah 43:2
With Him, we can do anything and surpass any hardship. For we can do anything through Christ who gives us strength.
For those of you like me still battling adjusting to college, hang in there, trust in God, and remember to praise Him in the storm.
"I'll praise You in this storm, and I will lift my hands. For You are who You are, no matter where I am."
