And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that ship was covered with the waves: but He was asleep. And His disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish – Matthew 8:24.

Storms come into our lives whether we’re believers or nonbelievers. A storm is a strong attack on a fortified place.

Most storms that come into our lives don’t prepare us because they come from out of nowhere. Life is going well. You have a good relationship with the Lord. Your family is well and healthy; you have a good job, money in the bank, and driving a nice car, then bam, the storm comes, and it is boisterous; you’re in a place you think you may not survive.

God will never allow a storm to come into your life that will be detrimental to your well-being. He’s aware of what you can handle and what you can’t handle. In fact, God chooses what storm you will go through because He has already seen the end result.

Some storms come because we feel we’re untouchable; nothing can shake our faith. We’ve been in this thing too long; we got it! Other storms come because God wants us to have holy boldness. Then there are the storms that increase our faith in God and in ourselves.

The Lord allows storms to come into our lives to bring out the best in us. Sometimes, we become stagnate, and God wants us to grow to higher heights in the Spirit. He allows nonbelievers to have storms to draw them to Him (Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls – Matthew 11:28). God has placed greatness in His people whether they believe in Him or not. He will not remove what He has placed within us because of one’s unbelief.

God knows about everything that comes into our lives; nothing is hidden from Him, and nothing is a surprise. Storms will either promote you or break you, depending on who you’re placing your trust in. Is it yourself, the storm, or God?

When we think we can handle it ourselves and not invite Him in, He will step back and allow us to try to handle it ourselves, and usually, we make things worse than they were. When we trust the storm, we don’t have faith; without faith, we can’t please God. When we invite the Lord into our storms, He will raise up and rebuke the storm or walk with us through the storm until what God wanted to be accomplished in us is completed.

Although God spoke destiny over our lives before birth, we must follow the process to reach our destiny. Walking to our destiny, we will encounter storms and giants, but when you have the Lord walking with you, you can conquer anything that comes to hinder, block, or destroy your destiny.

Place your faith in the Lord, who is the author and finisher of our faith.
