Jesus calmed the storm when his disciples where afraid they would perish on the boat. Think about the storms in your life. During theses storms, put your trust in God. He allows the storms to occur to grow us just like good competition grows us and shows us what we need to work on. When you begin to panic, confess your need for Him, then trust He has a plan, and ask Him to show you the ways He wants to grow you into a strong Lighthouse by allowing this storm in your life.
Father, I come to rest in your loving presence. I know this day and the days before me will bring difficulties. It is my human way to try and think my way through these trails all alone. Please remind me that you are with me…that I am not alone. I pray that you will send to me your peace, the peace that passes all understanding. My Lord, strengthen me and all those who pray with me today and prepare us for this day…transform our fear and anxiety into confident trust in you their God.
…and he rose and rebuked the wind and said unto the sea; “Peace, be still” and the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
He maketh the storm calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
