A boat in harbor is safe from storms, it has no opposition or challenges. However, ships are not made for the harbor they are made for the big blue sea. As we sail off from land from what is safe and comfortable, we discover the expansive night sky and the shining stars.
We were made by the Infinite God of the Universe to reign in life. We may find storms arise as we pursue our destiny, but that only reveals what is in us. We are created to overcome every challenge and obstacle that is in our path.
God’s love is what sustains us. It is only His opinion that matters. He made us in His image, placed us in our location and fitted us for our destiny. When we became separated from Him He sent His only begotten son to earth, so we could receive eternal life and be reconnected to the Father of Lights.
Now when the waters get bumpy we can relax and know that we are actually in the Father’s loving arms. He will never leave us nor forsake us. His love will calm and center us, and we can move towards the dreams He has put into our hearts. He will work in us to will and do His great pleasure. Over time we will see the sun peeking out from behind the storms clouds, because it was always there shining even during the storm.
