STORMS – God’s Tools for correcting Our Lives

April 25, 2016



Psalm 107:28-31


Yet when they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, the Lord brought them out of their distress. He calmed the storm and its waves quieted down. So they rejoiced that the waves became quiet, and he led them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his gracious love and for his awesome deeds on behalf of mankind





God delivered sailors when they cried out to Him in storms. He calmed the seas and brought them safely to their ports. This too, demands public praise from those who were rescued.

We have a saying, ‘Let those that would learn to pray go to sea’; I say, Let those that will go to sea learn to pray. The thank offering of the Psalms appears to be one pledged by the worshiper during or after some zero hour of his life. On the basis of Psalm 107 the rabbis spoke of four occasions when the thank offering was appropriate: safe return from a voyage, safe return from a desert journey, recovery from illness, and release from prison.


Memory Verse: Nahum 1:7
