We have seen storm after storm come onto our shores in recent days. Hurricanes, tornadoes, snow, rain, sleet have pelted our land. God uses it all.
As heartbreaking as a major storm can be, it has a message wrapped up in its winds and the message is that God is ultimately in charge. He can use the clouds, rains, and winds to speak in a new way. Losing property in a storm might just result in crying out to the Lord and establishing a home with Him in heaven. He wants to use it all.
“I know that the Lord is great, that our Lord is greater than all gods. The Lord does whatever pleases him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths. He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.” Psalm 135:5-7
Jesus, thank You that You have control of the winds and rains. You speak through them all. Please help us to listen.
