Until the weather changes for the worst, we don’t realize the power that exists that is beyond our control. As Americans, we are taught that we are a mighty superpower, however, our strength is weak in comparison the category five hurricane making its way to the American coastline. When we witness its power we realize that we can’t control it, and are at the mercy of God. Thanks to the powerful prayer of many, the current storm is coming onto land at a much lower category, and instead God has relented and spared our people from complete devastation. It will still be catastrophic, but prayerfully, loss of life will be minimal. When the world seems to be collapsing, turmoil has taken over, and the storms around you threaten to bring you down, God has given you strength through His Holy Spirit to overcome all kinds of adversity. May you be at peace as a Cat 5 hurricane threatens to devastate your life, knowing that you can get through it with the powerful strength that is within you!
that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, ... Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:16, 20-21
