I think we can compare this to our own lives. We go through storms in our lives that cause much devastation and destruction. Some of us handle it better than others. I guess you could say they were prepared. How does one prepare for the storms of life? They surely will come, whether we like it or not.
I often think of Paul and Silas in prison, bound in chains, singing and praising God. How did they do that? I believe that it is because they totally trusted Jesus with their very lives. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did the same in the fiery furnace. There are many examples in the Bible about total peace and trust in the midst of the fiery furnaces and storms of life.
Hiding God's Word in our hearts keeps us from sinning against Him and strengthens us.
So are you preparing for the storms that will come in your life?
