God, Thank You for the Storm (Matthew 14:22-32)Bro. Mike Meade, May 6, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
It's easy to praise God and thank Him for the good things in life, during the good seasons, isn't it? It's easy to be thankful for your home, your family, your job, etc.
But what about during the bad times? What about the times in life when you are facing a storm or a difficulty? Are you able to thank Him then?
God has a lesson to be learned, even in the midst of the storms of life. Often, it is during those times when God is able to teach us things that He otherwise would never have been able to teach.
Be thankful in your storms this morning. We have a lot to learn during the storms that we would never be able to learn without facing those difficult times.

22And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
