The Storm Has Its Purpose - Rich Wilkerson Jr., Elevation Church Sunday Sermon March-19-2023. Every story has a storm, and every storm has a purpose. In “The Storm Has Its Purpose,” Pastor Rich Wilkerson reminds us to take courage — because God is in control.
Steady in The Storm - TD Jakes. Scripture: Luke 8:22-26 KJV. When you go through the storm, whose voice are you listening to? In our lowest moments, we try to fix our way out, but the most important thing you can do is remain steadfast! You will not die here. The vast storm you’re facing is an indicator there’s an even greater assignment on your life. Rebuke the storm! You’re not finished — you’re coming out victorious on the other side!
Don't Waste Your Crisis - Dr. Carolyn D. Showell, Sunday Sermon. Scripture: Genesis 1:28, 2:8 (KJV) We were blessed from the beginning, but that doesn't mean our lives are exempt from a crisis. Sometimes, God will evolve you through a storm. It's an opportunity to lean into Him and ask who it is you need to become. Don't resist the hour of crisis, for through it lies your transformation. Discover who you are by refusing to stand still in defeat. Starting this week, praise God that it's all working together for your good!
Steven Furtick (June-23-2020) Watch Online Sermon: Your Appointment In The Storm.
Have you been going through something lately? None of us are exempt from the storms life sends our way, but it’s not always clear what we should do in the face of them.
In this message, Pastor Steven Furtick shows us what it looks like, not only to face a storm, but to keep our hope in the middle of it. In Acts 27, the apostle Paul’s boat was stuck in a storm so vicious that many of the men on board, “...finally gave up all hope of being saved.”
But just because things looked bleak and just because it was hard and just because they thought it was all over, doesn’t mean God abandoned them. Someone on that ship had a promise from God. They were going to survive.
Like Paul, you have a promise from God and this is not how your story ends. You’re going to make it to shore, it just might not be in the way you expected.
Charles Stanley (April-29-2020) Sermon: Our Anchor In Times of Storm. Matthew 8 tells about the time when Jesus Christ and His disciples were on a boat in a raging storm. The disciples’ fear and Jesus’ response remind us that God will help His followers survive the tumultuous times in our lives. In the message "Our Anchor in Times of Storm" from the classic Life Principles series, Dr. Stanley highlights Life Principle #3 and discusses that the key to surviving any difficult situation is to cling to God.
Joyce Meyer (April-05-2023) Daily Devotion: Peace in the Midst of the Storm.
When life feels overwhelming, there’s only one place we can go for true, lasting peace—Jesus Christ. He is the “Prince of Peace” (see Isaiah 9:6) and the Bible says He’s our shelter in the storm. (see Isaiah 4:6).
I used to think that the way to have peace was to get rid of all my problems. It was a wonderful day when the Lord helped me realize that I could come to Him for peace in the midst of my problems.
It reminds me of the old hymn, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.” This is what the refrain says:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face;
And the things of the earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
You see, when we take our cares and worries to God and spend time with Him, we magnify Him or make Him “bigger” in our eyes. When we do, all of our problems and concerns suddenly look smaller. Compared to God, they grow dim and insignificant.
Your problems may be big, and they are not insignificant to God. But when you keep your eyes on Him, He gives you perspective.
I love Matthew 11:28 (NIV). Jesus says, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
When we “come to Him”—when we read God’s Word, sing a song of worship or just sit and tell Him how good He is—He takes all of our worry, anxiety, fear and sadness and exchanges it with His peace, joy, hope and love.
When you feel worried and anxious, I know it’s easy to panic and allow fear to take over. That’s when you need to slow down, get still and focus on Jesus. He’s always with you, available any time of the day for you to cry out to Him for His supernatural peace.
Pray: “Father, right now I take a moment to come to You. Thank You for Your amazing love and how good You have been to me. Your strength, guidance and protection make all the difference in my life. Help me to always keep my eyes focused on You and receive Your supernatural peace and comfort. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
