“No matter what we go through, no matter where we’re standing, we should never stop worshipping.”
He is the God that gives and takes away, and then gives again. That’s right, God does not take away anything from us without blessing us again. He has our best interest. We are his most precious creation. “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than them?”
Often times we find ourselves in situations where we really do not know what to do. I know, it can be so frustrating especially when you have had your entire life planned and under control and then suddenly nothing works out, you lose everything. Now what do you do? Where do you go?
As I was talking to my dad today, he mentioned something very interesting that grasped my attention. He said, “perhaps this is where God wants to meet with you – in the storm.” Perhaps this is where God wants to show me that He is truly in control. I’ve never thought of it that way. We can get so busy trying to figure everything out ourselves and forget to trust God with our plans. We have to keep in mind that “we can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” I’ve been focusing so much on planning and achieving and there came a point where things were not going as planned.
I quickly realized I was completely overlooking what God was trying to show me through this season of my life. So I just took a moment, kneeled before Him and just worshipped. Without asking any questions, on my bedroom floor I worshipped – thanking him for who He is, for what He’s doing and for where He has me at the moment. No matter what we go through, no matter where we’re standing, we should never stop worshipping.
Whatever your storm may be, perhaps it’s your marriage, you’re grieving the loss of a loved one, your health, or financial stress, just take a moment and praise Him – praise Him through your storm and see His hands move. The almighty God, the creator and owner of all things; our provider, our healer, our comforter, our advocate wants to meet you in your storm – Oh, bless His holy name!
