“Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the Lord, His wonderful deeds in the deep. For He spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven.” (Psalm 107:23-30)
Amen! God is in absolute and total control of any kind of storm we may face. He commands the winds and waves to do His bidding – whether to get our attention, or to grant us sweet refuge. And when it seems as if His face is hidden, rest assured that He is working on our behalf to make all things new – remember Noah’s rainbow.
And so, Wordzpreadians, we close out the Stormkeeper series with the anointed lyrics of Cornerstone, by Hillsong:
“When Darkness seems to hide His face, I rest on His unchanging grace. In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil; my anchor holds within the veil!
Christ alone, Cornerstone; weak made strong, in the Savior’s love. Through the storm, He is Lord; Lord of all. Through the storm, He is Lord; Lord of all!!”
