Most people run for shelter when a storm hits. Depending on their whereabouts, the basement is a good place to hover and wait. On the other hand, professional storm chasers run straight into the path of danger, but for most people—they take cover.
Faith will chase God’s Word not the devil’s illegal suggestions.
There is a clear analogy between natural and personal storms. They are both scary and they both require protective-covering. The comforting thing about a personal storm is you don’t have to run and look for protection. Your protection is where the Holy Spirit dwells. (Psalm 91:1) Christians always have their covering like a turtle always has its protective shell.
The only time you see a turtle without its shell is in a pot of boiling water.
When you feel hopelessly submerged in dark-stormy clouds, you have moved your faith away from the hope that is found in God’s Word. The Word is the Son-shine in the storm. Focus on what the Word has to say, not the darkness. It’s not easy, but every time your thoughts stray to the darker regions—find the Son-shine in the storm.
