How To Get Out of The Storm!

How to get out of the storm

Life is always full of storms, trials, and tribulations. We were told they would come while we are here on this earth, however as children of God we have the peace of knowing Jesus overcame them {John 16:33}! The Bible also instructs us the storms would come more frequently as the End Times approached as birth pains {Matthew 24:8}. But you can weather these storms in peace by keeping your eyes on Jesus knowing you are safe.

At this moment where are your eyes? Your physical eyes are focused on one area but you also have spiritual eyes. Remember – depending on which eyes you are looking with,  that is what you are going to focus on, and it will be what you believe!

Spiritual eyes don’t see the problem or focus on the crisis. It walks and talks faith! For without faith it is impossible to please God {Hebrews 11:6}! Faith sees Jesus and focuses on Him – spiritual eyes see Jesus and focuses on Him!

You can look at your crisis, your medical report, problems in your relationship and be overwhelmed by worry, fear, and doubt. Or you can see with your spiritual eyes; you can see with faith, and feel assured, confident, safe, and at peace knowing that you are CARVED in the palm of your Heavenly Father’s Hand {Isaiah 49:16}!

Looking at King Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20, we can all learn something important from him. The King understood one very important thing we can use today – where to look.

A massive army was coming to destroy Israel and King Jehoshaphat had no idea what to do. His natural eyes saw disaster on the horizon. “We have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us,” he told God, “nor do we know what to do. But, our eyes are upon You.” {2 Chronicles 20:12 } God gave Israel the victory the very next day AND they never had to fight!

That’s the kind of victory I want today! And you and I CAN have it! We need to see with your spiritual eyes and have our eyes on what God can do! We may even have to pray as Jehoshaphat did: “I don’t know what to do—but my eyes are fixed on You.”

Notice too that the King sent praisers out ahead of the army. We too must praise God in the midst of our storm. We need to thank God for His goodness in advance! “Praise the Lord,” they sang, “For His mercy endures forever!”

When you don’t know how to pray or how to ask God for help and your situation is too big for you- praise the Lord! Thank Him for His goodness and the blessings you’ve already received. Thank Him in faith, believing He is going to help you! Then watch and see what He does for you just as He did for Israel!
