"And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm." (Luke 8:24)
As we continue to grow through 2015, we will encounter storms of life. Storms come in our lives to build us-not to break us. When you experience storms throughout your life, don't focus on the storm, concentrate on who controls the waves. When the disciples were confronted with an unexpected storm, they went into "spiritual survival." Surviving spiritual storms are easier when we don't make things difficult. When you encounter a storm, take the measures the disciples applied. Go to Jesus, activate your faith, make your petition to Him and put it all in His Hands. Jesus is an experienced lifeguard who will shield you from the winds and billows of life. Keep the faith, all storms come to pass!
