Paul said these words to the other 275 passengers just as they were in the middle of a hurricane and about to be shipwrecked. God had told him that all would reach the shore safely if they would only believe what he told them and stay with the ship. Now, I am not on a ship. Nor am I in the middle of a hurricane, but sometimes the events of my life do toss me around some and I have to rely on my belief in God and recite Scripture and sing songs to remind me whose I am. I am a Child of the King. So I need to be like Paul and believe that no matter what is thrown at me, I will arrive safely to shore. I was feeling really bad physically last night, so I went to bed very early (about 6 p.m.) without dinner. I just needed to rest. I put aside the things that I had planned to accomplish and went to bed, praying that today I would be stronger and feel better. Well, I do feel better today and I’m believing that God will strengthen me throughout the day, no matter what challenges I face. No, no hurricane in sight, but storms arise daily and I have to face the eye of the storm and declare my belief in the Creator of the Universe and that He will bring me safely through the storm or He will calm the storm. God keeps me going, facing the daily problems that everyone who is older faces. God continues to “steady my heart” and to encourage me to keep going until He calls me home to be with Him. Do you believe in the only One who can take you through the storms of life? God loves you and knows what you are going though. Only He can steady your heart and bring you safely to the shore. Ask Jesus into your heart today and feel the wonderful freedom and safety that you will feel just because you now have the Savior of the world on your side. He overcame, and so can You if you believe in Him!
Kari Jobe is one of my favorites and this is a favorite song, especially when I need to be reminded of how close God is to me and all He does for me. I hope it blesses you today!
