PATIENT IN THE STORM

Psalm 62: 1-8

The passage here from Psalm 62 is a psalm of David and written at a time where he was under assault and when many were seeking to knock him down. But you will notice that he is praising him in his life’s current storm. Casting Crowns has a song “Praise You in This Storm,” that talks about similar circumstances. They mention while thunder is rolling and that every tear we have cried, God has in His hand. Even so in the turmoil, they will lift their hands and praise the God who gives and takes away and even when our hearts are torn, we should praise Him in this storm. When we enter troubled waters and see the storms brewing against us, our first instinct is to react quickly and to change course. We should first cry out to God for guidance because sometimes He is wanting us to wait.


When God is telling us to wait, He is saying to us to pause for further instructions. He wants us to stop and listen. Remember, in all and with all things God has a purpose. He and He alone know the perfect time for us to act. Until that moment comes, He asks us to wait. It takes a lot of strength, character, and will to wait while we are in the midst of a storm. We must be patient to listen to God’s solution instead of trying to get out in front of God.


I know that my faith is small at times, and that, I get nervous and lose focus and do not trust God as I should in the storm. Jesus does not want that for us. Paul says to “be anxious for nothing” and to pray to the Lord who offers peace. (PHIL. 4: 6-7) So, the storm hits, and we must do the opposite of what our small faith minds are telling us and we need to pause with patience. We do so trusting in God’s wisdom, love, power, and timing!!!


FINDING PEACE IN THE STORM??? WAIT FOR GOD. GOD HEARS OUR PRAYER. WE NEVER WILL GO WRONG RELYING ON HIM. HE NEVER FAILS…NEVER HAS…. NEVER WILL!!! PRAY FOR PATIENCE AND THEN LISTEN!!!
