Historically, an earthquake followed by a landslide in 1958 in Alaska’s Lituya Bay, generated a wave 30.5 meters high, the tallest tsunami ever documented. According to the Guinness World Book of Records, the largest recorded rogue wave was 25 meters high and struck the Draupner oil platform in the North Sea in 1995. The largest wave ever ridden by a surfer belongs to Rodrigo Koxa who surfed a 24.3 meter wave in November 2017 off Nazaré, Portugal. However, spiritually and mentally people ride waves, or even fall under the weight as they bring despair in their lives.
Be encouraged by Psalm 65:5 & 7:
In life, a wave of despair comes and engulfs the day, week or even a month, but one has two choices, to go under it or to ride it like a surfer in faith. It does not matter what you calamity is today, a positive attitude with faith and the hope in the outcome you cannot see, will enable you to ride the wave. Take one step or day at a time, ride the problem in faith and know that God is in control of the wave.
Dear Lord, as the waves of calamity cross my path, give me a determined spirit of faith, understanding and hope, to know that you are in control of everything. Although everything seems lost today, I know that what tomorrow brings will be great. In Jesus name, Amen.
