This isn’t a book about the weather; it’s about our lives. The word “storms” describes the difficult and challenging seasons we all face periodically. However, as believers, we don’t have to feel helpless or hopeless. God has established powerful principles and strategies to help us thrive (not just survive) in the midst of life’s challenges.
In this book by Tony Cooke, he outlines three different storms in the Bible, why they came and how they got through. Jonah’s storm, the Disciples’ storm and Paul’s storm. Jonahs storm came in the midst of disobedience and he got out of his storm through repentance and consecration to do the will of God. Because he was delivered from his storm, Jonah made it to Ninevah and delivered Gods message and the people were spared. In the disciples storm, it came in the midst of perfect obedience. They got out of their storm when spiritual authority was exercised and the command of faith was spoken. The disciples brought Jesus to the other side and a demoniac was set free. The third storm outlined was Paul’s storm and his came through the disobedience of others. He got out of his storm through perseverance and enduring faith. Paul made it to Rome and the gospel was presented to Cesar. No matter what kind of storm you are going through in life, you can persevere, survive and overcome and lead out the plan God has for you.
