Perfect Storm-Impact

istock_000002236889largeSo many times in my life I can hear and be moved by a message but then a few days later I can lose focus of what I’ve learned. I hope these questions help you ad your family as you process all that God is doing in your life. Make sure you also implement the action items that are listed or come up with some of your own. I would love to hear your feedback on what you thought about this process at the end of the week.

Have you ever been in a tornado, hurricane, earthquake or really big storm? What happened?

What does it look like to “have a storm in your life”? Why is a “storm” a good description for those events?

The speaker said we are all in one of three places. Which one of these best describes you and your family right now?
a. You are currently in the middle of a storm.
b. A storm is coming and you don’t know about it.
c. Or you are just walking away from a storm that     has blown through.

Do you feel like God is in control even in the middle of your storm?

Read John 16:33. How can this help us remember God is in control—even in the storms of life?

What might God be showing you about Himself through the storm?

When everyone was afraid because of the storm and their bad situation, Paul was steady. Why do you think Paul had confidence in the storm? (Read Philippians 4:12-13.)

How might your relationship with God be changed by the storm?

Action Steps

If you are going through a storm right now, who are the people that may be watching you and your family as you go through this storm? Put these names on your fridge and take the time and pray for them.

Make an appointment this month with someone that you wrote down on your card to “TELL” them your story of how God is in control of your storm.

Print out the attached image below and display it in a prominent spot to remind yourself of this truth.

Get your Spade Work in: Read Acts 9-12

  2. This is a really really good devotional. Definitely applicable to well everyone. I’m going to print this out and use it for future references. I also really love the John 16:33 verse. One verse I like that kind of goes along with that is Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -This is by far one of my favorite versed in the Bible along with Hosea 6:1-3, but anyway. As far as the last part goes, “I will be with you wherever you go;” that reminds me of John 16:33 entirely. I would say that peace is definitely prevalent. – of course that could definitely be tested to test strength there, but as long I think of that I know I am comforted. Remind me sometime to tell you about a neat thing I experienced with Joshua 1:9. But yeah that devotional is very good. I know I have several “storms” I am trying to get over. Thanks for posting this! See ya
