STORMS – God’s Tools for correcting Our Lives

April 28, 2016

Thursday

 

Isaiah 25:4-5

 

For You have been a strong-place for those who could not help themselves and for those in need because of much trouble. You have been a safe place from the storm and a shadow from the heat. For the breath of the one who shows no pity is like a storm against a wall. Like heat in a dry place, You quiet the noise of the strangers. Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the one who shows no pity is made quiet.

 

 

LESSON

 

Specifically, they will confess how He delivered those who trusted in Him (during the Tribulation) in spite of the fierce antagonism of their enemies, which was like driving rain.

As a passing cloud provides relief from the heat during a drought, so the Lord gives His people relief by humbling the song of their ruthless foreign enemies.

In either the sudden intensity of the cloudburst or the steady, enervating heat, life is threatened. Unless one has a stronghold against the flood or a shade from the heat, there is no hope.

It may seem that the people who ruthlessly bully themselves into power and wealth have done something worthwhile. But God has determined long ago that He will reverse man’s outcome according to His plan. God has the last word. When the storms of life hit where do you find assurance?
