I Will Praise You in This Storm!
The storms of life are often overbearing and hard to handle. They come at us in every shape and size. Since their duration is not immediately known, we don't know how to adequately prepare. Their intensity usually determines our response. But their goal is always the same - perseverance.
In James 2:2-8, James says it this way: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
Are you letting the storms in your life have their intended result? The longer you resist, the longer they'll rage on. Cooperating with the Spirit is a good way to calm the seas and shorten the testing of your faith. Not cooperating may make you feel like you're drowning. The choice really is yours. Choose well.
