Sweet refuge

Pain, deception, bitterness, disappointments, sadness, hunger, nakedness, abandonment and countless other things are what we go through many times, but none of these things are strong enough to separate us from the love of Christ. Our God is powerful to stand us firm before these things and this is demonstrated through the biblical stories that accompany us today.

There is a story in the Bible that tells us that moment in which the disciples were on the boat and there was a great storm, how they were very scared, then, imagine yourself in the middle of the sea, in a wooden boat and the big ones waves over you, the sea extremely enraged, is it not to be feared? The disciples were trembling, just as you and I would.

God is a specialist making the impossible possible, in doing great works when the human arm can not do anything else. God is a specialist taking us out of problems that we would never attain by our own strength, beloved, God is the God of the impossible.

There’s a song that I like a lot and one of his strophes says:

Sweet refuge
in the storm
is Jesus Christ the Savior
who encourages me and feeds
with His word and His love

In that refuge we must rest, we must live, trust, walk and believe every day that in our worst moments, that in our worst trials He is there to give us comfort. In those difficult times God is a specialist doing wonderful works. Trust in God!

The psalmist said:

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

Psalm 46:2-3

All the men of the Bible went through perhaps harder times than ours, however, they believed in the powerful hand of God.

      I want to encourage you with this “Even when it`s hard, I have peace in my heart, for I know with me is God.” I personally have experienced this, so whatever you`re going through, when you have God, you have all that you need. Trust Him even when the things are not happening as you want and when you want. HE IS THE GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE . Believe it with all your heart you will see wonders happening in your life !!

    God words are mighty and stronger than two edged sword.I lost my job and stranded with my pregnant wife and daughter in another country . But the story of children of Israel is similar to my situation and circumstances.my prayer to the almighty God is to give me another job.
