The Perfect Storm- meets- The Perfect Savior!

The phrase A perfect Storm comes from a 1997 book that refers to a storm so forceful and broad that it effects every aspect of life on earth. As I am still reflecting on the Blizzard of 2011- which some have deemed a perfect storm for Chicago, my mind wondered to the perfect storms of our lives. Those situations where it seems that one incident is so forceful and broad that it effectively shuts down everything else. When I experience such storms, which I believe we all do; I turn to Hebrews 2:14-18. Let's Look:

14 Those children have bodies made out of flesh and blood. So Jesus became human like them in order to die for them. By doing that, he could destroy the one who rules over the kingdom of death. I'm talking about the devil. 15 Jesus could set people free who were afraid of death. All their lives they were held as slaves by that fear.

16 It is certainly Abraham's children that he helps. He doesn't help angels. 17 So he had to be made like his brothers in every way. Then he could serve God as a kind and faithful high priest. And then he could pay for the sins of the people by dying for them.

18 He himself suffered when he was tempted. Now he is able to help others who are being tempted.

When you find yourself enduring the perfect storms of life, hunker down- settle in- rest assured that every big storm has any eye-where there is calm. Trust and believe that Christ is the perfect savior who has been through the test and temptations of the storm and even died so that we may endure such storms. Know that even the perfect storm has no authority when facing the perfect savior.

Thought for the day: If God has allowed you to come to it, God will also bring you through it!
Dear God bring us through the storms of life even more faithful than when we went in. Amen.

Love P.J.
