Praise God in the Midst of Storms

Praise God in the Midst of Storms - by Keith Cook

"You who fear him, trust in the LORD- he is their help and shield. " Psalms 115:11 NAS

During one of my trips to the Philippines, I was suddenly made aware that I was in the midst of many storms. There were typhoon warnings going off and the very roads we were traveling on were washing out from under us. We were racing frantically to try to cross a bridge that was the only way out of the war torn and terrorist infested area. The storm waters were rising fast and suddenly washed our bridge away. The government and people's army were fighting all around. Bullets were flying and there was no way to know who was friend or foe. I was battling all kinds of emotional, physical and mental storms while being in very real storms of nature.

Yet, right in the middle of all the storms there was somehow peace. Jesus was with me. Jesus was comforting me, and He was ministering to my troubled mind.

Eventually, on my journey in the Philippines, I began to see each storm and situation as a blessing and opportunity to trust God more and rest in His perfect will for my life.

You may be facing storms of pain and doubt right now in your life. I have been told that the safest place to be during a storm is right in the middle, or in the eye, of a hurricane. Right now you need to rest in the middle of God's will for your life. He is your help and shield. He is your Heavenly lifeline.
