In the Eye of the Storm

By Greg Higgins

 

Last week my wife told me about a new song she had been hearing on the radio. She asked if I had heard it before and I acknowledged that I had not. I decided to look it up and I have not been able to stop singing it since. The title is Eye of the Storm by Ryan Stevenson. The chorus simply says:

 

In the eye of the storm, You remain in control.

In the middle of the war, You guard my soul.

You alone are the anchor when my sails are torn.

Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm.

 

I can’t help but think of this song when I watch the news on a daily basis. Police officers killed in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Terrorist attacks in France. Everywhere we turn, it seems to be doom and gloom. It kind of reminds me of the story in Matthew 8 when Jesus was taking a nap on a boat. There was a huge storm that arose and the disciples were afraid for their lives. They thought they were going to die. This is evident with how they woke Jesus up from the nap. They said, “Lord, save us! We are perishing.” (vs. 25)

He got up and rebuked the wind and the sea and there was a great calm the Bible says. Then the disciples said something in verse 27 that we need to grasp a hold of. They said, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”

That’s a powerful question. Think about it. When you have storms rise up in your life or the winds begin to blow things around and make situations look scarier than they are, you know the Person who commands those storms. That’s the most reassuring thing you can hold on to.
