Summary: There is a Blessing for Believers in the middle of every storm life brings!
There is a blessing in the midst of every storm that comes into the believers life! I am not sure what type of storm is raging in your private life today, but I am sure that if you are a believer, there is a blessing in the midst of your storm! Storms come to cause fear, shake your foundation, destroy your faith, and get you off track! This is Satan’s purpose for your storms! God has a different purpose! He wants to calm your fears, increase your faith, and strengthen your foundation, and get you on the right track!
Job is evidence to the believer that “it rains on the just and the unjust”. You can be living righteous and serving God, yet storms will come into your life. Sometimes you are just picked out, to be picked on, so you can be picked up by the hand of God!
Remember, God told satan, have you considered my servant Job? When God considers you, you are already blessed! The fact that God would take notice of us is a blessing! Rejoice in the thought that God is considered you worthy of a test for a testimony! What a joy to be considered by the creator! So many people seem to live lives unnoticed! Yet, God has taken notice of us today, in His infinite wisdom, and unlimited compassion, He has considered us weather proof, storm proof, faith proof enough to allow a storm to come into our lives! Surely we know that He will not allow any temptation of come up on us,
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
So then God considers us, and He knows that we have within us what we need to make it through the storm! To be considered for the Great work of God! To have God watching us and taking notice of our actions, bragging and betting on our faith! Bragging about our integrity! Using us His children to wage war and shame on the enemy! Oh, that God would consider us worthy of such a test! Rejoice, knowing that God is banking on you being able to stand on your faith in the midst of the storm! The blessing here is that he sees stuff in me I can not see in my self! He trusts me more than I am able to trust my self!
The bigger the storm, the bigger the blessing!
Job is an example of the worst storms life can bring! Death of children, loss of property, loss of security, finances, family, friends! Destruction by fire, wipe out of everything meaningful and valuable! Loss of respect from family and friends, loss of power in community, loss of security, bank accounts, stocks, retirement, health care, home, car, clothes, money, jewelry! Loss of health and strength! Loss of support of your spouse! Everything that supports and inspires you gone, loss in a single storm!
There is a blessing in knowing that the bigger the problem, the bigger the blessing God has laid up for you! If we make the right choices in the storm, we can reap the blessings of the storm! The Angels that God have given charge over us are strengthen by our faith in our trials and tribulations. If we stand on God’s Word, and we are faithful, we give them power to be victorious for us in the spiritual realm, while we endure in the physical realm! Know with confidence! God has a blessing for you even in the midst of your storms!
