1. Storms come with life.
…in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary. (Matt. 14:24 NKJV)

2. Jesus comes in the storm.
They saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened. (John 6:19 NIV)

“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down….I am GOD, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior….So don’t be afraid: I’m with you.”
(Isaiah 43:1-3,5 MSG)

3. Christ uses the storm to teach us about himself.
It is good for me that I have been afflicted that I may learn your statutes. (Psalm 119:71 AMP)
