No Storm Now

An aged Christian, Sam Saunders, was growing weaker day by day. His wife and he had lived many happy years together. One day, as she realized his rapid decline, she said to him: "Well, Sam, the storm will soon be over."
"That's a mistake," he answered. It wasn't that he did not know that his life was soon to end; but he said: "The storm has been over and done for near two thousand years. It's a thing of the past! Now there's no storm—nothing but bright glory all the way for Sam."
Yes, the old man had the truth of it. For every believer in Christ, the storm is over. The Savior bore it all on Calvary; and now we have peace. In Christ we stand in all God's favor. And what about the future?
"We... rejoice in hope of the glory of God." Rom.5:2.
With what blessed assurance the believer in Jesus can sing;
"The storm that bowed Thy blessed head
Is hushed forever now,
And rest divine is ours instead,
While glory crowns Thy brow.
"Within the Father's house on high
We soon shall sing Thy praise,
But here, where Thou didst bleed and die,
We learn that song to raise."
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:25.
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us."
