Encouraging Words: Be Strong In The Storm.

 I thank God for being God, if not, what would become of a person like me?

 God has been so good to me, and has preserved; protected and provided for me till date by His grace.

 I wouldn't withhold my gratitude, though I have to continue with my ministration.

Are You Discouraged?

 I have learnt to understand the saying that life is not a cup of tea, neither is it a bed of roses; it is a stone that must be broken with determination and courage. With this, I would love to say that:

 "God doesn't take us into the storm, He takes us through the storm to make us strong, so we can be able to live life to the fullest."


 Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

 God is not a man that He should lie, therefore, there is no need to panick, just be patient.

Encouraging Words For The Discouraged

 Jesus Christ, after teaching the multitude, went into the ship with His disciples and while they sail through; the wind became fierce and the waves covered their ship.

 At that time, Jesus was asleep, but His disciples feared greatly, went and woke Him to help them; for they said, "Lord save us: for we perish."

 Then Jesus Christ rebuked the wind and there was a great calm. What I want to bring out from that story is the reaction of His disciples.

 Matthew 8:27 "But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!"

 This statement showed the amazement that His disciples portrayed at the cause of His intervention, thereby, strengthening their faith in Him after that storm.

When discouraged, remember these encouraging words: He is with you.

Be Strong In The Storm

 Recently, I had a very uncomfortable moment in my mind as a result of the failure that occurred after a long time of investment.

 It was very disappointing and miserable for me, but I had to see it God's way: the preparation for the times to come.

 Brethren, if you don't pass through that situation today, you may not be able to stand your ground tomorrow.

 God knows the best and desires that we get the best, and the best product always takes the hardest process.

 That's why He doesn't take you into the process but through it, to make you produce the best of your kind.

 Don't murmur in that storm, be strong because you aren't staying in it, but you are going through it. And soon, you will be out of it.

 Then will you see the salvation of the Lord, and have a reason to thank God for your life.

 This message is specifically to encourage the discouraged. Be strong because God has your names listed on His plan.

 Whatever you are facing now, is part of the process to build you up for a better future. Put your faith in God, and He will fulfill His good plans in your life.

 Stay blessed, God loves you.
