This past week the people on the east coast were bracing for one of the worst disasters they have seen on over ten years. The weather forecasters and government officials were looking at the computer models and preparing everyone for the destruction that was on its way. Now that it was not as bad as was predicted many people are crying fool and claiming that it was all hype and that it was never going to be as bad as predicted. It is sad to see people upset because thousands didn't die and the destruction was less than had been predicted.
I can only imagine and guess at how many prayers were said over the days leading up to the hurricane. I know at our church prayers were said for the people in the path of the storm and would assume that the same thing was done all across the country.
When it comes to hype versus Hope, Hope and prayer will always prevail!
Have a blessed week,
Matthew 18: 19-21
19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
8 Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble,
And He brings them out of their distresses.
29 He calms the storm,
So that its waves are still.
30 Then they are glad because they are quiet;
So He guides them to their desired haven.
38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”
