Psalm 107:29 (NIV) He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
Loud thunder, wind, and rain are what we experience when there is a severe storm. Sometimes the storms will come by surprise, and we are awakening from our peaceful sleep. We get up and may even look out the window to see if there is any damage from the storm.
There are also the storms of life that we experience such as unexpected sickness, death, pandemic, and divorce. Many times these storms of life will come when we least expect them. As we see and hear about the storm we may get overwhelmed.
During these times of storms we need to be reminded that we can stay calm, because the God who created the universe can calm any storm. It does not matter whether it is a storm of nature or of life. God is able to just speak to our storms and they will become calm. You may not be able to handle the storm with your strength, but God can. The storms will eventually cease.
