The Lord promises to calm life’s storms that rage around us. Sometimes He chooses to calm the storm and sometimes the storm continues but He will calm us. An example of this is found in God's Word that says in Jonah 1:16, "At this the men greatly feared the Lord, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows to Him."
These men were about to lose their lives and then God calmed the storm. A great lesson is to be learned here - you don't have to wait till things get so out of control to call on the Lord!
He is always there and waiting for us to give Him control. May we release and rejoice at His protection and direction.
