Lie: True Christ Followers Have Storm Free Lives

Just because we follow Jesus doesn’t mean we will have trouble-free, storm-free lives. The Bible tells us that, “in this world, we will have trouble.” (John 16:33) But Jesus also tells us He will strengthen us for the storms of life.

We need to build our foundation on God and His truth in the Bible. That will make us strong enough to withstand the storms.

The One Mentality We Need

The circumstances around me will never weaken the faith within me.

“If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all— how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

Romans 8:31-35

If God is for us, who can be against us? We are at risk of this becoming a saying that hangs above our mantel rather than a mentality that drives our faith; that this scripture would become so familiar to us, that it would lose its power in us.

It is shown in Romans 8 above that our faith is built on the foundation that we have a Savior that is interceding and fighting on our behalf. Because of this; this mentality is possible for us today and everyday,
