Be still and know.

Be Still and Know

Sometimes the storms of life imitate storms in nature. At times, we know that a storm is coming and can prepare for the onslaught as we track its approach. Other times, it builds out of nowhere. Caught in it, we become drenched and tossed about. Its ferocity takes our breath away as we move headlong through the worst of the storm. What storms of life have you gone through, and where have you taken shelter? God’s Word promises that whatever storm we face, He will be there.

Study Psalm 46 in detail, examine stormy situations, and look to narratives in the Gospels that showcase how Jesus met women in the midst of their storms of life. He provided rest, refuge, strength, and hope to women, who met Him with a cry and need. Have you ever cried to Him too?

Jesus responds to you as He did to these women in Scripture: with care that goes further than your immediate or recognized need. He transformed their lives by His redemption, and He began by meeting them where He will meet you: in the storm.
