God’s Word teaches us how to be prepared for the storms of life…
God Is All-Present
In Psalms 139:7, David is overcome that God is always with him.
Not only is God omniscient; He is omnipresent as well.
He is in all places at one and the same time.
The Bible teaches that God is a Person who is separate and distinct from His creation.
Is there any place where man can evade the Holy Spirit of God?
Is there any place where he can hide from the presence of the Lord?
Suppose man should ascend into heaven, would he elude God there?
Of course not; heaven is the throne of God (Matt. 5:34).
Even if he made his bed in Sheol, the disembodied state, he would find the Lord there as well.
The fact that God is omnipresent means He is present everywhere.
Because of this, you can never escape from His Spirit.
This is good news to those who know and love God, because no matter what we do or where we go, we can never be far from God’s guiding and comforting presence (see Romans 8:35-39).
How-be-it, nevertheless the Lord requires Obedience of His children, because when push comes to shove in your life, as it surely will, only those who have taken the time to build their faith on the solid rock of Jesus Christ will find that their house will stand.
New King James Version
Build on the Rock
46 Jesus speaking: “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?
47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like:
48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock.
And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.
49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

MORNING IS COMING
“Where can I go from Your Spirit, or where can I flee from your presence?” — Psalm 139:7
When a storm hits, it will reveal whether your life is built on a solid foundation or on sand.
Storms give us an opportunity to honor God in a better way than at any other time.
We don’t invite storms, but we can face them because we know that God’s grace will be sufficient.
One night, a little girl became frightened because a terrible storm with lightning and strong winds was keeping her awake.
The next morning, at the breakfast table, she asked her father, “Where was God last night in the middle of that storm?”
Before her dad could answer her, she said, “I think I know. I think He was busy making a morning.”
In the worst of life’s storms, we too can be confident that God is making a morning.
