Recently, my friend Dr. Richard Hipps shared this outline with his congregation. He said he read it in an article, and since I like it I thought I'd pass it along. The four storms in scripture are as follows:
- Storms of Correction: a storm due to your own sin.
- Storms of Connection: a storm you experience because of other people's sin.
- Storms of Perfection: a storm intended to grow you.
- Storms of Reflection: a storm giving you the opportunity to glorify the Lord.
Are you in a tough time now? If so, what do you think the Lord is up to?
