Have you been hit by a hurricane? Storms in our life are not avoidable, Jesus confirmed it. "In this world, you will have trouble." John 16:33 So it's not if, but when, the hurricane will hit. When it does, how will you respond? Will you stand firm, being shaped into a thing of beauty by the winds? Or will you allow them to uproot and destroy you?
Jesus not only promised us we would have trouble, he reminded us, "But take heart! I have overcome the world."
God gives us the ultimate victory, so when the storms come, sink your roots deep into Him, hang on, and let Him shape you.
