The suddenly in life seems overused and often becomes the reason of defense just to cover up messes, unacceptable failures, shame, or just to escape responsibility. Life has tempest and will continue to have flare ups regarding anything and about everything. There is no way to escape entirely these tempest, tests, and trials of life. It’s part of the human circumstance. There is no way to have any certification or an accolade that life from this moment on will never be filled with storms. But out of the blues, there are plenty of promises that God has given to us from His Word that He will be with us no matter what may come our way. We do everything by any means viable to avoid these storms and endeavor to protect our loved ones from their tempest, unsuccessfully.
God didn’t promise us to have a tempest-free life, but that in every storm which comes our way, He will be there to comfort, guide, and protect. The promises are for good days and bad days, and every kind in between. God hasn’t promised cloud-free days, but He has promised strength. Whatever the day or test, He has promised to be there with you. In Hebrews 13:5 . . . “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” And the bottom line is that there is no positive security in this life but there is a positive promise of strength for each day!
In life there is a chasm that we all need to leap . . . and our success depends upon the kind of disposition we have as we are faced with this kind. The tempest of life is just one of our chasms. At times, we refuse to move on and just stop where the chasm is. But if we just look forward, with passionate desire to pursue and extend our tent, we may have the courage to start it better and outstrip the chasm we are facing at the moment . . . just right attitude is hardly going to make things any better.
It’s so refreshing to know that whatever happens in the life we are living here on earth, there is an Almighty God who will never ever leave us nor will He ever forsake us!
Psalm 27:1, The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
