Can a man or woman of God really have peace in the midst of the storm? As Christians can we be in full joy when we go through various trials or tribulations? When your life is based on faith, biblical knowledge and consecration to the Lord is possible!
Although in the life of every believer there are times when it seems our world is collapsing, we can remain firm and more than that, grateful to God knowing that for those of us who really love God all things turn out for the best as long as we walk according to his holy and sacred will (Romans 8:28). It is precisely this trust in our Lord Jesus Christ that allows us to be at peace in the midst of any difficulty that as faithful believers may come our way on the path of faith.
And our faith is increased in our lives when we walk under the presence of the Holy Spirit. That same faith that reveals to us in due time the will of God and at the same time gives us that joy that we only enjoy under his anointing.
Have Peace In The Storm No Matter What Warfare Is Against You
You know you have a great calling, and if you have great gifts to put at the service of God and His work, the stronger the spiritual war against you will be. But in the face of this truth, how is your behavior? Do you get discouraged, despair or rejoice in the Lord? Remember that regardless of your ministry, gifts and talents , the Lord may be preparing you for great things!
Before a difficult situation we can fall into depression, frustration and some anxiety, but in this situation the best medicine is to have the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. There are even times that without being in sin or having committed some fault that we do not feel that presence and it is precisely that the Lord is testing us to see how much we have matured as Christians.
It is necessary that as true believers in Jesus Christ we have the ability not to lose heart in faith, to know that everything will pass and at the same time the full conviction that after a great trial comes a great blessing. In short, if it is possible to have peace in the midst of the storm as long as we never stop trusting the one who called us and loves us above all things.

Peace In The Storm Bible Verses

Christian Words For Difficult Times
In fact, with the points already raised in this publication, it should be enough to seriously reflect and maintain peace and joy when we go through various circumstances as Christians, but by pretending to make this a serious biblical study on the subject, I present the following points to you: take into account:
1. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. (John 16:33).
To believe that when we are children of God we are exempt from the hardships of life is a mistake. When we have Jesus in our hearts we feel peace, even though the world is falling. All the afflictions of this world are but passing clouds of a storm that will soon pass.
2- Always behind a storm there is a bonanza.
We just have to learn to endure the difficult moment, work to overcome it and prepare ourselves for the moment of prosperity that is to come. Avoid complaints and praise God, thank him because he will glorify himself in your difficulty. Let us remember that even the time of the Apocalypse will end in a great victory!
3- No storm is eternal.
When the sun of your happiness is eclipsed by great clouds of problems, do not think that they are eternal. It’s true, most take time, but nature and above all God says that the sun of joy will rise again.
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”Philippians 4:7
Let’s analyze this biblical verse (Philippians 4:7)
A)- It surpasses all understanding
It surpasses all understanding. You have to believe that it is possible, you will not understand it, it has no logic (by the way, everything that God does has logic, what happens is that our logic does not reach his), perhaps it seems absurd, because the storm is too great, but God still acts there, He said to a woman with her dead brother, “everything is possible for him who believes”.
B)- He guards your hearts
He guards your hearts. The heart for the ancient world was the place of the will, of desires. God says to put your desires and will for him to control. Are you willing to place your entire existence in the hands of God?
When we are in anguish, without peace in the soul, we can make mistakes, from fainting and being perplexed seeing how everything collapses, without fighting or even some come to suicide, but God can control that will and give you strength and hope.
C)- This peace that surpasses all understanding
This peace that surpasses all understanding. In times of restlessness, when we do not have peace, our thoughts attack us, they are relentless, we cannot think of anything other than the situation that makes us uneasy. We can be in a moment of happiness, but it is ephemeral, because that thought invades us and the joy vanishes. That is why it is necessary for God to control those thoughts.
When we are tested it is necessary that certain information is not be revealed to us because that’s the test of our true faith and spiritual maturity.

You Will Have Peace
The psalmist says: “Trust in the Lord and do good; you shall dwell in the land and feed on the truth” ( Ps. 37:3 ). “Trust in Jehovah.” Every day he has his afflictions, cares, and perplexities; and when we meet them, how quick we are to speak of our difficulties and trials! We allow ourselves to be invaded by many borrowed concerns, harbor many fears, and express such a weight of anxiety that anyone might suppose that we do not have a compassionate and merciful Savior ready to hear all our requests and to be our present, constant help in every time of need.
You can be stumped in business; your outlook may be bleaker every day and you may be threatened with loss. But don’t be discouraged; entrust your burdens to God, and remain serene and calm. Pray for wisdom to handle your business discreetly, thus avoiding loss and disaster. Do everything on your part to obtain favorable results. Jesus has promised us his help, but not without our making an effort. When, trusting in your Helper, you have done all you can, he joyfully accepts the results.
It is not God’s will that his people be weighed down by the weight of worry. But our Lord does not deceive us. He doesn’t tell us, “Fear not; there are no dangers in your path.” He knows that there are tests and dangers, and he has made it clear to us. He has no intention of removing his people from the midst of a world of sin and evil, but he points out a refuge that never fails. His prayer for his disciples was: “I do not pray that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from evil.” And he says, “In the world you will have tribulation; but take heart, I have overcome the world” ( John 17:15 ; 16:33 ).
