Stilling the Storms of Life

Want to be thoroughly encouraged and blessed this Sunday morning? Then go view and listen to the video broadcast called Stilling the Storms of Your Life!

Today's Turning Point Devotional:

Big Problems, Bigger Solutions: Bitter Waters

And the people complained against Moses, saying, "What shall we drink?"
Exodus 15:24


Exodus 15:22-27

The first part of Exodus 15 resounds with total praise as the Israelites burst into song for their deliverance through the parted waters of the Red Sea: "I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!"

But by the end of the chapter, they were complaining, panicked, and grumbling about being stuck in the desert without adequate water.

How fickle we are--one moment praising God and the next in panic mode!

The Lord was ready for the crisis. He told Moses to cast a small tree into the brackish springs in the area, and the waters were sweetened for drinking.

When faced with a problem or need, don't complain, panic, or doubt God. Problems are opportunities for us to praise God in advance for the solutions He'll give. These are Praise-Problems!

Facing difficulty just now? Thank God for what He's going to do. He knows how to make bitter waters into better waters and how to bring forth streams in the desert.

Turning Point

Christian renewal begins when we focus on God's power and not our problems.
John Maxwell

Daniel 7:1 9:27
