Find Peace in the Storms

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you” (Isaiah 43:2).

The image that comes to mind when meditating on this scripture is that of an individual crossing over a deep water and this person is afraid of being swept away but there is someone stronger and bigger than this individual who is walking side by side to him or her and urging them to carry on crossing because he is with them and they have nothing to be afraid of.

I can never forget my return from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Compassion UK in January 2017. I didn’t expect anything in return but upon my return from the trip, I was pleasantly surprised to have read from local newspapers who had carried the news about the fundraising project. It did not stop there but we went on to have an interview about it all on Jesus House radio. When I extended myself a little bit to help others, its news spread across the board.

Develop A Selfless Character

Your character is the first thing people notice about you; It reveals your identity in Christ and attracts others to you. One of the Christian characters to develop is selflessness. Jesus Christ said it’s the second most important of God’s commandments (Mark 12:31; Galatians 5:14). How you handle certain situations, how charitable and generous you are to others, how you speak to others and the way you treat them is most important to God than anything else in the world.
