When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever. — Proverbs 10:25

We all face difficulties in life. They may be health challenges, relationship trials, financial trials, or emotional trials, but all of our difficulties and sorrows end up being spiritual trials.

When it aches, where is God? Why does God allow us to go through life's ups and downs?

Scripture never promises that we will not face difficulties and disappointments in our lives. There is no guarantee that life will be easy, uncomplicated, or enjoyable.

Nonetheless, God promises to be with us at all times. He will be our anchor through life's storms. And the greatest way to test an anchor's strength is to put it through a storm.

Following Jesus' teaching is "like a wise man who built his house on the rock" (Matthew 7:24-27): when a great storm came, the house did not fall because it was constructed on a solid foundation.

Similarly, Proverbs encourages us to base our lives on wisdom and righteousness, i.e., having a healthy connection with God. When we accomplish this, we will be securely moored and able to weather life's storms.

We may stand steady with God as our basis, knowing that our fate is safe in his hands.

Mighty God, guide and shield me through life's storms. Help me to trust you in the midst of adversity and guide me to the appropriate connection with you. Amen.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
