Hello Dearest Friends,
I am so encouraged by the provisions the Lord makes for us!! As we were driving home on a trip last night we hit a storm. Unfortunately, I was unprepared. My windshield wipers weren’t great. As it came down upon us, we were on the portion of the highway with large trucks and construction limitations…but still high speeds. PTL, God was with us on every twist and turn of the road. With every gust of wind and every drop of blinding rain I could just call out and He truly gave me “peace like a river” as the wonderful old hymn reminds us. I am always in awe of all the Lord does for us. He truly guided me in the storm!!
I pray this devotional encourages you as it does me.
Please don’t forget the audio link. Such a wonderful option!!
Have a wonderful week in the Lord,
Our Daily Bread — God In The Storm

READ: Job 37:14-24
He is excellent in power. —Job 37:23
Early one morning the wind began to blow and raindrops hit my house like small stones. I peered outside at the yellow-gray sky and watched as trees thrashed in the wind. Veins of lightning lit the sky accompanied by bone-rattling thunder. The power blinked on and off, and I wondered how long the bad weather would continue.
After the storm passed, I opened my Bible to begin my day with reading Scripture. I read a passage in Job that compared the Lord’s power to the atmospheric muscle of a storm. Job’s friend, Elihu said, “God thunders marvelously with His voice” (37:5). And, “He covers His hands with lightning, and commands it to strike” (36:32). Indeed, God is “excellent in power” (37:23).
Compared to God, we humans are feeble. We’re unable to help ourselves spiritually, heal our hearts, or fix the injustice we often endure. Fortunately, the God of the storm cares about weaklings like us; He “remembers that we are dust” (Ps. 103:14). What’s more, God “gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength” (Isa. 40:29). Because God is strong, He can help us in our weakness. —Jennifer Benson Schuldt
I sing the mighty power of God
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad
And built the lofty skies. —Watts
God is the source of our strength.
Bible in a year: Jeremiah 12-14; 2 Timothy 1
