Finding Peace In The Storm
We were never promised by the Lord that storms would never come but we do have the promise all things will work together for our good according to our faith. That is the stipulation. Our faith is not based upon our goodness but His. If we inventory our works to determine the victory it will inevitably lead us to depression and worry during chaotic times. The fall in the Garden of Eden happened because man disobeyed God. God said to the man do not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil because the minute you do it will separate you from knowing the peace of God. Every day we have the opportunity to obey or disobey God in this same area. To eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil is simply to compare your evil to His goodness and when we do that we will always feel undeserving of victory. Start to day… find your peace in the works of Jesus at the cross. Stop rehearsing your failures and collect evidence of His greatness. Stand in the faith that Jesus satisfied the Father and you are an inheritor of the blessing. Find peace and the storm cannot stay. Resist the temptation to compare your works to His goodness. The storm is passing …. But The Word will never pass away.
