at your wits end?

"Those who go to the sea in ships,
Who do business in great waters;
They have seen the works of the Lord,
and His wonders in the deep.

For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
Which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They rose up to the heavens,
They went down to the depths;
Their soul melted away in their misery.
They reeled and staggered like a drunken man,
and they were at their wits end.

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and He brought them out of their distresses.
He caused the storm to be still,
so that the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad because they were quiet;
So He guided them to their desired haven."
Psalm 107:23~30

I read this passage this morning.
Such beautiful words of the ocean that I love.

More importantly,
what a powerful, loving God we worship.

Look at what our God did...
He spoke and raised up a stormy wind.
The sailors were in great distress.
They called out to Him,
He caused the storm to be still.
He guided them into their safe haven.

What storm are you in right now?
What is distressing you?
Cry out to God.
He is more than able to calm your storm.

Are you at your wits end as these sailors were?
They had the good sense to cry out to God.
He heard them.
He answered their prayer.
He saved them.

God, who created the ocean.
 who speaks and makes a storm,
Has already met all of our needs by sending
 His son Jesus Christ 
to fulfill His plan of salvation.

Thankful & joyful tonight because of this.
