Reflections on the Storm

It is easier for God to change the path and intensity of a Stage 5 hurricane, than for Him to direct the course of a rebellious people.

If I tremble in His presence, I need not tremble in fear of the hurricane, for He directs its path.

So, I pray, ‘Oh Lord of heaven’s armies, change the course of the storm, Irma, and reduce her intensity at your word, so that all the earth will know that there is a God in heaven who responds to the prayers of His people.”

‘Listen, you foolish and senseless people with eyes that do not see and ears that do not here. Have you no respect for me? Why don’t you tremble in my presence?

I the Lord define the ocean’s sandy shoreline as an everlasting boundary that the waters cannot cross. The waves may toss and roar but they can never pass the boundaries I set.

But my people have stubborn and rebellious hearts. They have turned away and abandoned me. They do not say from the heart, “Let us live in awe of the Lord our God, for he gives us rain each spring and fall, assuring us of a harvest when the time is right.”

Your wickedness has deprived you of these wonderful blessings. Your sin has robbed you of all these good things.’ Jeremiah 5:21-25.
