He Maketh the Storm a Calm

I read several of the Psalms this morning and loved this passage:

“Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end.
Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!” ~ Psalm 107:21-31 (KJV)

Is life a bit stormy right now? Cry to God, that He would bring you out of your distresses, calm the storm, and bring you safely into the “desired haven”.

And “praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!”
