Romans 15:13

Peace in the Storm
A wonderful old hymn says, "He gives us peace
in the midst of a storm."                                         
In life we face all kinds of storms. We usually
think of the personal "storms" that come our way-    
financial worries, problems in our marriage or family,
illness, the betrayal of a friend, and so forth. But we
face other kinds of storms that threaten to engulf us
also: storms of materialism, storms of secularism,   
storms of moral degeneracy, storms of injustice,      
terrorism, and war.                                                
Do you remember the violent storm that came
upon Jesus and His disciples one night on the Sea of
Galilee? His disciples grew panicky-but Jesus stayed
fast asleep. He was at peace because He knew God was
in control. He was at peace also because He was        
sovereign over the storm, and He knew it would vanish
at His Word: "Peace, be still!" (Mark 4:39).             
His Word still calms the turmoil in our lives. Is
some storm making you fearful today? Stay close to  
Jesus, for His Word brings peace
