Life is full of clear air turbulence events that appear in inopportune times in our lives causing many of us to be uncomfortable and uneasy. Turbulence, brethren, is a common occurrence during air travel as it is in human life journeys. Unexpected Changes or lack there of are the cause for this turbulence.
Instead of focusing on human turbulence, how about we focus on the God’s smoothness? Without God, Peter sank in the turbulent waters of the sea. But with the Lord and through faith, Peter walked on water in front of the disciplines in the Sea of Galilee, as we read in Matthew 14-22-36.
Much of the trouble that we experience in life occurs because of lack of trust. We need to let God be God and submit to His will. what are you afraid of? God is I love and trustworthy! “I see that the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” Act 2:25.
We must have radical trust in the one who created us and remember: “Without faith, it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6. “Yes, he alone is my Rock, my rescuer, defense and fortress. Why then should I be tense with fear when troubles come?” Psalm 62:2
I’m God I trust. In Him, I find refuge.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you make the Most High your dwelling– even the LORD, who is my refuge– then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.” Psalm 91.
Amen and amen.
