“When we sail in Christ’s company, we may not make sure of fair weather, for great storms may toss the vessel which carries the Lord himself, and we must not expect to find the sea less boisterous around our little boat. If we go with Jesus we must be content to fare as he fares; and when the waves are rough to him, they will be rough to us. It is by tempest and tossing that we shall come to land, as he did before us.”
“Winds and waves will not spare us, but they all obey him; and, therefore, whatever squalls may occur without, faith shall feel a blessed calm within. He is ever in the centre of the weather-beaten company: let us rejoice in him. His vessel has reached the haven, and so shall ours.”
So in the storms of life, we can follow James’ advice, whether wisdom, strength, faith, or revival, God meets our needs….
James 1:5 “But if any of you needs wisdom, let him ask for it from God, the one who gives generously and without rebuke to all who ask, and He will give it to him.” ULB-EN
