In the spring of 2021, several storm-chasers recorded videos and took photos of a rainbow next to a tornado in Texas. In one video, long stalks of wheat in a field bent under the power of the whirling winds. A brilliant rainbow cut across the gray skyline and arched toward the twister. Bystanders in another video stood on the side of the road and watched the symbol of hope standing firm beside the twisting funnel-shaped cloud.

In Psalm 107, the psalmist offers hope and encourages us to turn to God during difficult times. He describes some who were in the middle of a storm, “at their wits’ end” (v. 27). “Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress” (v. 28).

God understands His children will sometimes struggle to feel hopeful when life feels like a storm. We need reminders of His faithfulness, especially when the horizon looks dark and tumultuous.

Whether our storms come as substantial obstacles in our lives, as emotional turmoil, or as mental stress, God can still our storms “to a whisper” and guide us to a place of refuge (vv. 29–30). Though we may not experience relief in our preferred way or time, we can trust God to keep the promises He’s given in Scripture. His enduring hope will cut through any storm.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread, my name, so to listen.

I'm sharing a beautiful image of enduring hope in today's reading. Hope cuts through storms in the spring of 2021.

Several storm chasers recorded videos and took photos of a rainbow next to a tornado in Texas and one video long stalks of wheat in the field bent under the power of the whirling wins a brilliant rainbow cut across the gray sky line and arched toward the twister bystanders in another video stood on the side of the road and watch the symbol of hope standing firm beside the twisting funnel-shaped cloud in Psalm 107.

The psalmist offers hope and encourages us to turn to God during difficult times.

He describes some who were in the middle of a storm at their wits end.

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. God understands his children will sometimes struggle to feel hopeful when life feels like a storm.

We need reminders of his faithfulness, especially when the horizon looks dark and tumultuous.

Whether our storms come as substantial obstacles in our lives as emotional turmoil or as mental stress. God can still our storms to a whisper and guide us to a place of refuge, though we may not experience relief in our preferred way or time we can trust God to keep the promises he is given in Scripture. His enduring hope will cut any storm.

Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Psalm 107 versus 23 to 32. Some went out on the sea in ships. They were merchants on the mighty waters they saw the works of the Lord his wonderful deeds in the deep, for he spoke and stirred up a Tempest that lifted high, the waves they mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths in their peril. Their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards. They were at their wits and and they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. She stilled the storm to a whisper. The waves of the sea were hushed they were glad when it grew calm and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind.

Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the counsel of the elders.

Let's pray. Loving God, thank you for backing up your promises with your proven faithfulness. Thanks for being our hope giver, no matter what's going on in our lives.

In Jesus name we pray.

Amen.
