The Parables #5, There are many storms for us to face.
(Read Isaiah 28:14-22.)
1. Boys and girls I cannot emphasise strongly enough that in life we will face many storms. This the Bible warns us of as none other can. “And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full,” Mark 4:37. These disciples were in the will of the Lord and He was with them yet they encountered a storm! “Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God,” Acts 14:22.
2. For the unsaved, there is the storm of God’s judgment awaiting them. “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble,” Job 14:1. The word trouble carries the idea of storms but for the unsaved a stormy life will end in a great storm. “Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place,” Isaiah 28:17. The false refuges, the house built on sand, will be swept away in God’s judgment. Oh beware!
