Daily Devotion: When the Storm Rolls In–Isaiah 12:2
This is a fact of life: Dark clouds will gather from time to time, and the storm will eventually roll in. It is absolutely futile to worry about this or too simply hope it will disappear. Instead, as believers in Christ, we are called to stand firm in our faith when it happens. We are to remain calm knowing that our Father in Heaven is in control of every wind and wave.
However threatening the circumstances of life may seem today, it is imperative not to let anything take your attention from God and His promise. Our focus must stay fixed on Him and His Word at all times, trusting in His power. When we keep Him as the priority — at the center of our lives — we will remain in balance and undeterred no matter how hard the wind blows.
Rest assured, your loving and all-powerful Father in Heaven is working everything out for your ultimate good.
Lord, even when everything around me is shrouded in darkness, I know You’re guarding me. Thank you for being my shield of protection. Thank You for using Your unmatched power of protection every day of our lives. Thank You for loving us. Amen.
