Although storms have many origins, there is only one answer for all of them. Therefore, our first response to trials should be to open the Bible and find out what God has said.
Trouble has a way of drawing our focus downward, to the immediate situation, rather than upward to the Lord-who reigns over every event in our life.
A yielded life that’s settled in God’s Word, open to His work within us, and made adequate in the Holy Spirit’s love and power is immovable in the tempests of life.
