‘When the oceans rise and thunders roar’ is one song of hope that is always on my lips, especially, during the trying times. Whenever life throws its challenges believers must refuse to bow to it. We are people of faith and hope. Hope makes one alive and removes fear. Don Moen, songs always reminds us that rather than give in to the fears around us we should remember God’s magnificent promises and talk to our mountains using God’s word.
In Isaiah 43:2-3 the bible says
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the lord, your God. The Holy one of Israel, your Saviour’
This is a wonderful promise. The lord is ever present with us. He is never absent. Whatever the situation, He can be trusted. He loves us beyond our imagination. There is nothing too hard for him to do. He says again in verse 3b;
I gave Egypt for your ransom. Ethiopia and Seba in your place’
God did not only give up the heathen nations for us, he gave up his son Jesus for our sake. What else can he not do?. Be encouraged. Find rest in the words of this song by Don Moen. Hand over all your worries to God. He has your best interest at heart.
PRAYER: father we thank you for your wondrous love. We trust our lives into your care today. We ask that you fill us with faith and hope. Help us to live our lives freely without fear of what Satan may do. You have assured us that you are with us always. Thank you for loving us this much. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen!
