But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded. Genesis 8:1
God had grace on Noah and his family. Probably in the midst of serious doubt and loneliness, God had grace on him. When you’re in the midst of the storm, it’s easy to forget everything that happened before the storm. I’ve done this a few times while I was driving. A storm would rage all of a sudden, and you couldn’t see two feet in front of you. All concentration is on what is ahead. Who cares what trophy I received in my 9th grade or anything else leading up to this one moment. All focus was on getting through the storm safely.
Some of you reading this are in the midst of a raging storm right now. You cannot focus on anything but your storm. It engulfs everything you do. It could be the loss of a loved one, a divorce, a child gone astray, nearing bankruptcy, or anything else. You can’t focus on tomrrow because you’re taking one day at a time. You can’t think of the 6000 good days prior to this. Right here right now is your focus.
God will have grace on you. God will see you through it. The Bible tells us to “hurl all your troubles on Jesus, for he cares for you.” Do it. Do it soon, then let the Holy Spirit engulf you. You’ll still have the trouble, but you’ll be better able to handle it walking with Someone who cares.
Call someone and talk through it. Do it today.
