Psalms 36:5 Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
I love watching the sea. I love seeing waves rise and crash. I love the smell of the sea air on the breeze. However, I have only ever enjoyed watching the sea from the safety of the shore. I would imagine it must be terrifying to witness whilst at sea in a boat. The film “The Perfect Storm” illustrates this perfectly and has a really sad ending.
I also love the song “Faithful One” by Brian Doerksen. The song speaks of the unchanging, faithful nature of God and includes these words in the chorus:
You are my rock in times of trouble
You lift me up when I fall down
All through the storm
Your love is, the anchor
My hope is in You alone
There is tremendous comfort in these words. God’s love is undiminished by our circumstances, it is not intimidated by the size of the waves, or the strength of the current. His love is the anchor, He is our rock in the stormy seas of life.
Whatever storms we face today, we can run to God for help. He is our rock, our anchor through the toughest, scariest storms. Then, we can praise Him as we wait expectantly, confident in His faithfulness. God is able!
