Storm chasers are those who keep a close eye on storms by radar.
When the radar tracks a storm in the area, the storm chasers pack up their belongings, get in their vehicles and chase the storm. Although, they know how dangerous this can be, they go anyway. Regardless of motive, storm chasers go after the storm without any thought or consideration of what may meet them just up the road. BUT they go!
Imagine if Christians had the same daring attitude; you see the storm(s) of life coming and instead of running from it (fear), you face it head on (faith). For me, I know I’ve been guilty of running away, even knowing God is with me. We sometimes just don’t want to deal with the “hard” stuff. But it’s in the hard places, the valley’s are where we grow, find courage, strength and many times that’s where we develop a strong relationship with God. So, the valleys are working for our good. We never see it while we are going through it but God is using that very thing to do something marvelous in you and through you. Think about this, is your marriage on display for others to see God’s goodness and
faithfulness, even in the storm(s)?
You might find yourself becoming weary, worn out and restless when you continue to try to outrun the very
thing God knows you can win. He has given you everything you need to win. And sometimes all God require us to do is to be still while He fight our battles. Either way, you win!
So, the next time you see a storm of life coming, don’t run, face
it. Pray, fast, feed on the Word of God, and fellowship with other believers.
#Note to self
If you are not in a storm, praise God. If you are coming out of a storm, praise God. If you going into a storm…PRAISE GOD!
