Singing in the rain

Posted by appolus on March 3, 2020

Mar 4:39-40 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, why are ye so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith?

My son Daniel, who has Down Syndrome had Frisbee golf with the day summer camp that he went to many years ago. He was very excited about it. When we got up that morning it was apparent that the weather was not good. As we left for the camp at 9am it got really dark, in a way that you have to live in the Mid-West to really appreciate. It was as dark as night and the rain came on very heavy. It takes about twenty minutes to drive to camp and Daniel and I would typically have a time of worship on the journey there. Half way there he tugs on my shirt. I turn the music down and Daniel says with his broken language skills “I’m gonna sing to the storm.” It just struck me, it was so profound. I turned the music back up.

As we continued to worship (Daniel with his hands raised to God) I began to wonder, “Lord, are you going to clear this up?” I began to cry as I considered the very simple faith of my son. Brothers and sisters, before we got to that camp, the light broke through the darkness and the rain stopped. I was quietly shedding a few tears at the Lord’s dramatic response to Daniels prayer , not Daniel. He gets out of the car and he is muttering and he is speaking for God to the storm and he says “see storm, you’re not the boss of me.” And as soon as he said it I thought of the Scripture, Mark 4:39– And He awakened and rebuked the wind and said to the sea “Peace be still!” And the wind ceased and there was great calm.

I had such a time with the Lord on the way home as I considered who He was. When was the last time that you “sung to your storm?” Maybe you are in the midst of a storm right now. Maybe it’s as dark as it ever has been in your life. Saint, this storm does not have mastery over your life. We serve a God that in the midst of the most violent storms can say “Peace be still.” And suddenly there is peace. Can you sing to your storm today? Can you praise God even in the midst of your greatest trials? When the enemy of your soul says “let’s hear you sing now,’ can you confound him and sing out? When your back is to the sea and there seems to be no way of escape, can you, in faith, begin to praise Him because you know that all power belongs to Him?

Praise Him today brothers and sisters, no matter what your circumstance, praise Him today. And the light will break through into the darkness of your situation as you lift Him up above your circumstances and He takes you up with Him. He is high and lifted up and the train of His robe fills the temple. He is glorious in holiness. He inhabits the praises of His people. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies, and His banner over us is love.
