3 Scriptures on Peace in Life’s Storms

Jesus didn’t promise that life would always be easy. In fact, he often talked about how it would be difficult. But Jesus did promise to always be with us.  In our first Prayer+Worship Service we looked at turning to God when we face fear.  Take a moment to read these scriptures on peace and be reminded that even in the midst of our storms God loves us and is with us.

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

- Matthew 28:20

This verse comes from Matthew 28 in a passage we call the Great Commission. Before Jesus ascends to Heaven, he gives all his disciples (including believers today) the challenge to go into all the world making disciples and teaching them to follow Jesus’ teachings. This is a big task and is far from easy.  Jesus’ next words are great news! He promises that he will always be with us and that we can be sure of it.  Next time you face storms in life find peace in this simple truth: Jesus is with you!

"He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid?"

- Matthew 45:39-40

Jesus does two things in this passage. First, he speaks and calms the storm offering the classic expression “peace, be still,” 

Next, he asks a simple question. “Why are you so afraid?” When we face life’s storms it is worth remembering both of these. It is worth reflecting on the power of the God who loves us and it is worth asking ourselves what we are afraid of. We may find that this question allows us to see our the storms which caused so much fear and anxiety in a whole new light.

"They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind."

- Psalm 107:30-31

Our church was formed and named Haven for a reason. Because we want to be a place where people can find comfort and love in Jesus. Psalm 107 lists various ways people in Israel have faced dangers, from sickness to being lost at sea, but points out how God is a rescuer. We are reminded along with Israel to never forget what God has done but to give thanks and continue to put our trust in him.

We hope that these scriptures on peace in the midst of life’s storms have been a blessing and help you face the challenges of life confident in God’s love and presence!
