Podcast #128: “Eye of the Storm” by Ryan Stevenson feat. Gabe Real

Knowing Who God is in the Midst of Chaos in Psalm 46

The most compelling music in our lives often speaks to the deepest riddles of our soul. “Eye of the Storm” by Ryan Stevenson speaks of various storms that have impacted all of us at some point or another. However, I believe the song’s greatest impact lies in the comfort it brings to those of us in the middle of our own storms of life. The lyrics bring comfort by proclaiming the presence and provision of God.

Psalm-46-1-square

This song led me to the Psalms this week to seek confirmation of God’s character, promises, and presence in the middle of my own storms.

On this episode I discuss:

  • The power of Christian music to solve life’s riddles – Psalms 49:3-4
  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – our Bible Interaction Tool Exercises this week are:
    • Read in context
    • Meditate on Scripture
    • Pray Scripture
  • Learning exactly who God is in the middle of the storms of our life – Psalms 46:1-3
  • The compelling reasons why we should not fear – Psalms 46:1-3
  • “God’s Word and ordinances are rivers and streams with which God makes his saints glad in cloudy and dark days.” – Matthew Henry Commentary – Psalms 46:4-7
  • The call to consider the power and works of God in the midst of our chaos – Psalms 46:8-9
  • What we must do in response to the knowledge we have obtained – Psalms 46:10
  • Another reference to learning to be still in Episode 91

This Week’s Challenge

Read Psalm 46 all the way through the first time. Meditate on what you learn about God, taking time to “be still and know that he is God.” Perhaps even journal about what you are learning. Use the truths you have learned about God (and how He responds to your chaotic storms of life) in your prayers of praise back to Him.

  • Thank you Michelle for this podcast. I was just praying for powerful audios to listen to during all my drivetime, and I then I just happened to fall upon your podcast as I was downloading the song “Eye of the Storm” from iTunes. It said… Podcast… underneath the download options… I thought that was strange, so I had to explore it, and then I fell upon your podcast! Wow! What a brillant way to share God’s word is through the power of song.. “through the inspiration of the harp” as it says in proverbs. Your creation of this podcast is truly God inspired and was just what I was looking for! I love the way you teach very clearly and your speaking skills are so articulate. You make it clear, easy, simple, and short to understand. Thank you for ushering myself and others into the scripture in such a flowing palatable way! Your delivery totally rocks. You are an exceptional messenger! 🙂 Nadine http://www.hopedealersworldwide.com
