Facts About Storms Of Life

grenepages_Ibukun Abraham MAXIMIZING TEEN-HOOD_Facts About Storms Of LifeChrist never promised us a life free of storms, even His disciples encountered storm while Christ was with them. In the last edition I talked about keeping hope alive, and now I want you my beloved readers to know that the ugly situation you may be going through is not
strange in human history, in fact, somebody somewhere has a more terrible situation. So get up and stop pitying yourself. Stop thinking that God has forgotten you or that He is unfaithful to you.
I need you to know that no matter what happens to you in life, God is God and He is good. So stop judging God unfaithful over your circumstances. You are not the first to go through it and you won't be the last.
No storm is meant to kill you. The way you handle them will determine the outcome. For instance, someone is going through a very difficult time in marriage or finance, and such a person stops praying because he or she thinks God does not hear prayers anymore. In fact, maybe the person thinks going to church is a waste of time. At that moment, such an individual has opened the door of his or her life to the devil to take charge of the situation that is bad already, and when the devil does take charge, I tell you, he is without mercy, and will finish such a person.
Storms of life are meant to polish your view about life, situations and your view about how God works in ways beyond our imagination. For instance, it might take somebody somewhere having an ailment to appreciate know that God is indeed able to heal and restore him or her. Such a person would appreciate LIFE by the time they recover from it. You know sometimes we take life for granted, we think it is our rights to live and live healthy, but by the time you fall ill and you almost lose your life, then you will learn to appreciate God better for the gift of life.
You need to know that storms of life are meant to make you stronger, better and tougher. All these are values or virtues we all need to survive in this world. For instance, if everything you ever desired get to you so cheaply and effortlessly, how would you develop the virtue of patience and endurance? If you have never in your life been grieved before, how would you develop the virtue of forgiveness? Some of these virtues or values are developed through one difficult experience or the other.
The last thing I want you to know about storms of life is that it make you a coach to others who will go through the same or similar situation later in life. For instance, if you don't know what it is to be homeless and helpless, how would you comfort someone who is going
through such situation? To be frank and sincere with you, it is easier for people who have been through certain situations to comfort or help others that are going through the same situation. Someone who has lived fifty years of healthy life may not feel the real pain of someone who has been living for 30 years in pain and illness. Therefore, the 50-year-old healthy person may not be able to help emotionally, or psychologically, even though he or she may say, "I feel your pain" but that is not exactly true because they are in two different worlds, the 50-year-old has never fallen ill before so he or she cannot really feel such pain except by mouth. However, by the time a man with similar health history comes, he knows what words to use to comfort the sick because he's been through it.
Dear beloved, going through storms of life is not funny. Sometimes it can be a health challenge, academic failure, loss of a loved one, failed relationship, joblessness, rejection, abuse of any kind, disappointment, bareness, sickness or terminal diseases and the likes. No matter what the storm is, just remember that God is faithful and He does not want you to die in that situation, so don't give up on Him in prayers, fasting, worship and even praising Him. Remember the story of Paul and Silas in the prison and how they praised God and they were miraculously delivered. So please don't let the devil deceive you into thinking that God has forgotten you or that He doesn't answer prayers anymore. Just hold tight your confession, keep your hope alive, lean on the grace of God to see you through and always remind yourself that God is too faithful to fail you. Be full of assurance that He will come to your rescue.
Also, bear it in mind that it's for a reason, always imagine yourself triumphing over the situation, and don't forget that when you come out of it, you too will help others
come out of their own storms too. Love you all.
