We don’t have to wait for the storms of life to pass, we can speak to the storm and it will cease. Mark 4:35 tells us how Jesus calmed the storm and it ceased immediately. Therefore, when things get crazy in our lives, household, relationships, etc, we can do as Jesus did and speak “peace be still”, have no fear or doubt, just believe that it is so in Jesus’ name. We can have peace right in the midst of the storm. Don’t let the strong winds keep us from reaching the other side (our blessings). It’s according to our faith that we receive. Time is only a resource, it should not dictate our lives. When the virtue of God flows, it brings God into the situation, so we don’t have to put up with problems for weeks, years, or even days. Whatever the problem, just praise your way through it, knowing that we are not alone, Jesus is in our boat.
New International Version (NIV)
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Be Blessed and have a great day in the Lord,
