Your Redeemer calms the storms. He spoke to chaos and emptiness at creation and brought order and a world of beauty. The LORD who owns everything and rules eternally is with you now! (Genesis 1:1-5; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23)
Your world may be rocking in the midst of violent waves but the LORD is with you. He promised He would never leave you nor forsake you. You are not forgotten or abandoned. One word from the Prince of Peace and chaos turns to calm. (Luke 8:22-25; Matthew 6:25-33; Hebrews 13:5)
Sometimes it’s not the storm around you but in you.
Like Peter, the Master is in the waves with you. When sinking in hopelessness, reach out and grab His nail-pierced hand. When faith gives way to fear, look up into His eyes. Cling to the Rock that is higher! (Matthew 14:22-33; Psalm 61:2)
Daughter, the Prince of Peace, the One who calms the storms around you and in you, is with you.
