Overcoming Storms

Text:
Luke 8: 22-25, John 16:33
Memory Verse:
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Storm could be described as anything or situation that takes away your peace, and it has no regard for status. It happens to everyone, both Christians and non-Christians alike. Storms can result in sleepless nights and sorrows. Jesus did not promise that there would be no storms, but He promised victory and, so, we need not fear (John 16:33).

Jesus was in the same ship with the disciples when they encountered the storm that threatened their lives. The disciples cried out and woke Him up because they knew that without Him, they could not handle the situation.
Immediately, Jesus rebuked the storm and there was calmness and peace. Who  do you call upon when in trouble? (Psalm 91:14-16). If strong winds could hear and obey Him, what is that problem or storm in your life He cannot handle?

Biblical examples of those who experienced storms in their lives and how they
were delivered are:
1. The man at the pool of Bethesda who was sick for 38 years, deserted by
friends and family, but Jesus had mercy on him (John 5:5-8).
2. King David, who, all through his life, went through the storms, yet he
encouraged himself in the Lord (1Samuel 30:1-6).
3. Apostle Paul, a perfect example of the early Apostles who lived by the
storms of life (2 Corinthians 11:22-29).
As children of God, we must handle the storms of life when they come by
prayerfully handing them over to Jesus, the Master of the storms.

Prayer Points:
1. Every storm operating in my life today, I speak in faith, dry up from your
roots.
2. I declare by the unction of God Almighty that peace should henceforth
reign in my life and household.
