Reflections from a Hill in Paraguay

Many of us prayed that God would decrease the intensity of the stage 5 hurricane, Irma, and change her direction. God answered that prayer. Blessed be His name.

Meteorologists are now saying that the Bermuda High was the weather system which blocked the hurricane from venting it’s full fury on Florida.

This reminds me of a passage in the Gospel of John:
Jesus said, “Father, bring glory to your name.”
Then a voice spoke from heaven, saying, “I have already brought glory to my name, and I will do so again.”

When the crowd heard the voice, some thought it was thunder, while others declared an angel had spoken to him.

Then Jesus told them, “The voice was for your benefit, not mine.”‭‭John‬ ‭12:28-30‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The person of faith can distinguish between the voice of God and thunder. Unbelief blocks such perception.

The person of faith says, “I know it was the Most High God, not simply the Bermuda High, who stretched out His hand and decreased the intensity and changed the direction of the Hurricane in response to the prayers of His people. He may have used the Bermuda High, but the Bermuda High serves as He directs.

God has the power and love to change the intensity and direction of all the storms in our lives: be they health storms, financial storms, relationship storms. For nothing is impossible with God. Only believe and we shall receive.

Blessed be the name of the Lord.
