He is Lord over the land. He is Lord over the sea. He is with me in the good times. He is with me in the dark times. He will guide me to the safe place.
“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. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the council of the elders.” Psalm 107:23-32
There are storms that come in our lives that feel like raging tempests. We can reel and stagger under that tempest. But this psalm assures us that when we call out to the Lord, He hears. He can calm the storm with a whisper and bring us safely to the desired haven. What a lovely promise. We may be going through a terrible storm right now. He hears and can bring calm with a whisper.
Lord, thank You that no matter what I face, no matter how dark the clouds or how the winds rage, You are right here with me.
