God Will Calm Your Storm – Rest in the Power of His Grace

by   on 

Psalm 10729 God calm stormThere is not one among us at one time or another that has not felt hopeless, discouraged or defeated in life. It is at those times no matter how dark and gloomy things may seem that we must never underestimate the vast expanse and power of grace.

Hopelessness and failure are founded in our hearts and in not in our circumstances. We must learn to trust in the power of grace, because it is grace that causes hope to triumph. In our darkest despair it is the power of His grace alive in us that causes hope to rise, bringing light and life to our despair and failure.

In life there will be times when you feel as if you are standing on the edge of a cliff spanning a chasm as wide as the Grand Canyon, looking deep down into the gorge of despair, as your soul cries out for relief and rescue, but there seems to be no hope and no comfort. There are times that your mind seems frayed on the verge of sanity as the ponderosity of your burden seems to have broken every escape, and collapsed all hope. But I say to you fear not and be not dismayed as Christ is ever-present working on your behalf, supernaturally directing all circumstances and events, rescuing and delivering you from your all your desperation and doubt.

There are many avenues within secular society that promise to cure-all with self-help videos and self promotion books that tell you to be positive, lift yourself up and will your way to win. As we read and listen to these self-help gurus we will try to will our way to victory, coming up with plan after plan, method after method, hoping to survive and trying to improve our lives.  We think that if we develop a new workout schedule to better our bodies; upgrade the scenery in a newer neighborhood; buy a newer car, change relationships etc., that we can get ahead. But the reality is that in none of these things there is comfort or rescue. The truth is, as you are breathing in the desperation from your bone-dry desert of despair, choking on hopelessness of it all, while trying to find any way out that you will come to the realization that you must trust in Christ. He is your Anchor of Hope that has already secured your victory upon the cross.

If you are finding it difficult to make the right decisions in your life, you are relying on your own limited vision and insight. Put all your doubt, fear, indecision, hopelessness, anxiety and pain before the powerful Throne of Grace and let Jesus guide you in your decisions. He will guide you by His Spirit to make the right decisions, removing all that is weighing you down in your parched wilderness of self-doubt. He will overcome for you just as He overcame the world by the power of His grace poured out upon all humanity at Calvary.

Psalm 107:29 He calms the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea are hushed.
