Luke 8:23 “But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.”

Sometimes we wonder why storms in life come to us. We ask, “Why does this have to happen to me? I’m in church, serving God, and trying to walk with Him. Why do I have to go through this storm?” The disciples were the same way. They were obeying Jesus exactly like He asked them. Not only were they obeying Him, they were with Jesus in the same boat, yet the storm came anyway.

When the storms of life come upon you…

  1. Go through the storm with Jesus
  2. Go to Jesus in the storm
  3. God is not mad at you
  4. God has not left you
  5. God will get you through

Storms come to everyone. Just realize that God is in control of the storms, and He is a shelter to protect you.
