Through the storms, the waves will rage, you will feel as if you are being pulled down by weights that seem to force you further below the waves, and you feel your heartbeat racing out of your chest. You wonder who will save you, who will protect you, and who will pull you out before your lungs are fully encased with water and the darkness overtaking your vision, but before this happens, someone grabs you, pulls you out, and pulls you to refuge. The person who saved you, was Christ!
He is the only one who can save you, and those who think different are still battling the storm. No person other than Jesus can save you, and until one realizes that, the storm will continue to rage, their fears will drown them, and their blindness from the truth will leave them out in the open lost, scared, and afraid. Jesus doesn’t want us to walk around like this, so that is why He died for us, so that we could have life!
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Though we were guilty in our sins and deserved eternal punishment, Christ still died for us so that we could eternal life! Jesus drank from the cup of wrath so that we wouldn’t have too, so when we go through our storms, we must cling to God, for He is the only one who can save us!
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2
When we accept Christ and cling to Him, we will not go through the waters alone, nor will the waters overflow us. When we walk through the fire, we will not be burned or scorched, for God is there! He will not leave us or forsake us! What we experienced before we were saved cannot hurt us due to the fact of us having Christ now!
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
With God on our side, nothing can stand against us! With the armor of Christ, no evil can prevail when we stand on the Word of God! As believers, we must stand strong on God’s Word and stay devoted in our walk with Him! In our society today, there are many temptations, evils, and sins that are lurking to attack one who is weak, but we must stay strong! When we keep our minds on Christ, there will be no room for evil!
Therefore, when you find yourself in a storm, call on the name of the Lord, for He is the one who saved your soul! When you wonder where He is, just call out His name, for He is there! God will never leave us or forsake us, and He knows our needs; therefore, we must remain faithful! Instead of confiding in worldly things to save us from our storms, we must confide in Christ, for He is the only one with the power to end the storm!
