The Bible has a lot to say about storms. Sometimes it is talking about literal storms, where the weather is fearsome and seems out of control. More often, though, when the Bible speaks of a storm it is referring to an adverse set of circumstances—when negative events enter into a person’s life. 
 
At any moment you are probably either in a storm, just heading out of a storm or about to experience one.
 
A storm connotes struggles, trials and tribulations. Storms seek to knock you over—mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Our life is full of troubles, so at any moment you are probably either in a storm, just heading out of a storm or about to experience one. You are going to experience all kinds of rain, thunder and hail. No one is exempt. Both the righteous and the unrighteous are affected by storms. 
 
It’s more important to focus on your response to life’s storms rather than to seek to avoid or remove them.
 
Storms affect us all. That’s why it’s more important to focus on your response to life’s storms rather than to seek to avoid or remove them. A kingdom man must build his life, home and his family on the solid foundation of God’s Word so he can withstand the storms that will blow through his life. My brand-new book, Kingdom Men Rising, will give you the tools you need to find the strength to weather any storm.
 
As Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). We will have tribulation, Jesus says. That isn’t negotiable. But in the midst of every storm, we can find the courage that comes from knowing the one who has overcome the world.
