For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall – Isaiah 25:4.

Whether you’re a believer, a nonbeliever, a new convert, or an aged Christian, storms will come into your lives. How we handle them determines whether or not we will be victorious.

It’s easy to praise and trust God when things are going well, but what about when a storm comes? Can you still praise and trust Him? Some storms come suddenly, quicker than you can think; when they arrive, you must hold on to an anchor, Jesus Christ.

Life brings storms, Satan brings storms, and being a Christian activates storms. When God allows storms to come into our lives, it’s not because we have sinned or because He does not love us; storms come to assist us in becoming mature naturally and spiritually.

We must be prepared before the storm. Preparation includes prayer, fasting, reading, and studying God’s Word. Nothing can shake one’s faith in Him when one is full of His Word. When one knows someone, we trust them.

God loves us more than our finite minds can comprehend; He will never allow anything to come into our lives that will destroy us, but He will allow things to come into our lives to mature us in Him. God does not want us to stay baby Christians.

Build a relationship with God; when you do, you can praise your way to the exit, knowing that this, too, shall pass, and you’re going over to the other side. When you praise God during a storm, you’re telling Him, I love you, I trust you, and you’re worthy of my praise.

Praise confuses the enemy, and praise lets him know he can’t do anything without God’s permission. Nothing comes into your life without God’s knowledge and His permission; when He allows it, it’s going to work together for your good!
