Like me, you may be familiar with the saying, “You are either entering in a storm, in the middle of a storm, or coming out of one.” This saying suggests that storms are always brewing; so it is not a matter of if we are going to experience storms but when. Some natural signs of storms developing are easy to recognize, e.g., grey clouds gathering, the sun disappearing from view, even a change in temperature.
Meteorologists utilize a combination of sophisticated technology to forecast as well as monitor storms. With the available technology they can tell us what type of storm is coming: rain, snow, hail, or dust. They can monitor storms and tell us what type of type of storm is coming or is expected but what they cannot do is control storms.
There is only One who has this power. I think of Psalm 89:8-9, “O Lord God of hosts, who is like You, o mighty Lord? Your faithfulness surrounds You [as an intrinsic, unchangeable part of Your very being]. You rule the swelling of the sea; when its waves rise You still them.” And of the well know story in the Bible when Jesus told the storm to be still and it obeyed. Whew! I am thankful for His power and long to stand in this truth as stated by Lauren Daigle in the song, “I am Yours.”
“So let the waters rise,
I will stand as the oceans roar,
Let the earth shake beneath me,
Let the mountains fall,
You are God over the storm and I am Yours.”
