Going through a storm?

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

God causes all things to work together for good.

Things just don't work together for good.

All things are caused by God, He is in all things, therefore they turn out good.

Bitterness, being hostile, anger or anything such does not bring out good.

God desires that we would have and walk in an intimate relationship with Him.

Have you let those blessings that He has given you, to become a distraction?

Storms come to get our attention.

Storms come when we get out of His will.

Storms come when our priorities are misplaced.

Could this storm have risen because you my friend, have strayed from God?

These types of storms are made for us to realize that we need God.

God must be our everything.

So, is your faith strong enough to stand and walk with Him, even through the midst of dark times?

Do you have an intimate relationship with Him?

Sometimes we need a storm to shake us out of being lazy, sluggish, or indifferent, or being disobedient or even back slidden.

So what has your attention?

Have you let other things distract you, and kept your attention off Him?

We must keep our attention upon Him.

If you have found yourself in a storm, He may trying to get your attention.

The stronger the storm, the deeper the valley, the more the pain, tells us how long we've been going in the wrong direction or how long it takes you to listen to hear His voice.

Storms also come to teach us things.

Things that we would not normally hear otherwise.

God is making us into His image.

Who doesn't want to be a vessel in which He can pour out His fragrant oil from?

He wants to be able to use at any moment.

A willing vessel must first be broken.

Brokenness, heartache, and pain are all things that we go through, because of what God wants to do in us and through us.

We must be broken vessels before God can use us.

It is through the storms of life that break us, and conform us, so that we will totally rely on God.

Do you want to be an available vessel for God to be able to use you?

God can use a broken vessel to help in the lives of others.

Only when we let God break this sinful, rebellious nature, and we say "Not my will, but thine O, Lord," then He can use us to bless others.

He will make you useful to others.

God will turn your brokenness into a valuable tool that He can use.

Nothing else will matter except you wanting to please your heavenly Father.

Have you let Him open up your heart, and break, shape and mold you?

He will use you to that maximum potential that He has placed in you.

Potential for Him to use, cause you have surrendered to Him.

God will make a way while you are in the midst of that storm.

Do we always understand the reasoning for the storms - No we don't.

No matter, how long, how deep, how intense, or even how lonely the storm, God has something good for you, when you come through the storm.

Storms also reveal our doubts.

Our doubts about what or how we believe in God.

If everything is going good do you question God?

When a storm arises, are you questioning Him about the storm?

Why God, Why?

Walking through those difficult times, hardships, trials and storms teach us not to doubt Him.

God proves Himself present, powerful, protective, compassionate, and sensitive through the storms of life.

What an awesome God!

So, How do you believe during the storms of life?

How do you fare through the storms of life?

These tests and trials of everyday life storms may or may not bring rain or winds, but the danger is just as great.

"And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of christ may rest upon me." 2 corinthians 12:9
