The Storms You Need In Your Life!

You may be in a storm right now in your life. You are either there in the storm, you are about ready to enter into storm, or you have just come out of a storm and the sea of life around you is smooth sailing. The amazing things about storms they are necessary for us to grow in our spiritual walks with God. In the storm we all seek God with even great intensity and passion. In 1987, a group of engineers, entrepreneurs, and earth scientists set out to build an artificial ecosystem in Oracle, Arizona. Biosphere 2 encompassed 3.14 acres, making it the largest closed system ever created. Designed as the ideal ecosystem for plant life to thrive, the climate-controlled environment included purified air, clean water, nutrient-rich soil, and natural light. Despite what seemed like perfect conditions, something curious kept happening. The trees that were planted would grow to a certain height, and then they would fall over. After some head-scratching, the scientists finally figured out what was missing. The biosphere lacked a critical component for growth. Care to venture a guess? In their natural habitat, trees are buffeted by winds that blow every which way. Trees respond to that wind resistance by growing stronger bark and deeper roots. Without adversity, trees atrophy. Newsflash: humans do too! Let’s seek God today for the wisdom to see how these storms are giving us strength to grow and see God. Don’t waste a good storm to experience God!
