The storm won't defeat us!

that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:45 NIV)

In life there are many good things and many bad things that happen to us. Matthew 5:45 tells us that it happens to everyone, even if we have faith. The difference is, when storms come our way we will not be defeated. The rain it talks about in Matthew can be good or bad. Rain can water crops or it can cause a flood and damage homes. Good and bad happens to everyone, it's just how you look at it!! I know it's hard to look at situations in a positive light, especially when it feels like everything is going wrong but no matter what, God is ALWAYS on our side! Romans 8:31 says if God is for us, then who can be against us? He's always fighting on our side! Remember He is FOR you! He is working in your favor!

  1. You are so right darling. It's hard for me sometimes to admit that there will be storms in strong Christians lives. Truth is the devil doesn't like us to be strong in Christ therefore the storms do come. The GREAT news is that GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US IN THE BOAT!!! Pamela Britt Malone
