Our Compass Through the Storm
With all the modern-day weather instruments, meteorologists can predict where a hurricane is likely to strike. Over the years, those living in areas with a high probability of being struck by a tropical storm or a hurricane have learned to be prepared.
In the same way, we must learn how to face the storms of life. God's Word is our best source of instruction. In it we learn that appreciation, reverence, and obedience are three principles that lead to victory in times of trial.
One thing we quickly discover is that life contains a variety of storms - some are furious and some are subtle. One of the more deadly storms, deception, can blow into our lives without warning. The greatest protection against this formidable storm is to cling to the Truth of God's Word.
Have you made a commitment to study the Bible each day? Do you apply it to the problems, crises, fears, and decisions you face? When you do, you will quickly discover that you are able to face the difficulties of today and the uncertainties of the future with a sense of strong assurance; all because you are grounded in God's Word.
Charles Spurgeon said, "When a home is ruled according to the Word of God, angels might be asked to stay a night with us, and they would not find themselves out of their element."
The Bible is our compass through the difficulties of life. Its text originated in God's mind and was communicated by the Holy Spirit to men who were God's messengers (2 Timothy 3:16). Make a habit of spending time reading and applying His Word to every area of your life. When you do, you will find hope, encouragement, and strength to face the storms of life.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that through You, there is peace in the storm. May Your Word be my compass through every difficulty I face. I trust in You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, 'Quiet! Be still!' Then the wind died down and it was completely calm" (Mark 4:39).
