God is powerful and His love for us is unchanging. I awoke this morning to the news of Japan being hit with a tsunami and a 8.9 earthquake. I immediately began to say prayers for Military friends of ours that are stationed there, then I immediately got on FB to see is they were alright. Praising the Lord that their family is doing well, and I am continuing to pray for the people of Japan. There are so many that lost their lives and belongings. It is a huge devastation.
Not only had Japan been hit, but Hawaii and it's islands were in jeopardy as well. I immediately beginning praying for our Military friends stationed there as well. We have many many friends stationed in Hawaii, and once again I jumped on FB to see if they had posted that they were OK. It was nice to see that a few had posted that they were doing well, but I have still not heard from some. Still praying.
When things like this happen, it humbles us to re-realize how mighty our God is.
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though it's waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at it's swelling.
God is always with us, no matter where we are, He is always there.
As I saw on a friend's FB page this morning, what we really need here in America is a "spiritual tsunami." Many have lost sight of Christ. It is so sad. Wake-up America, we're dying. When we start knocking God out of government, society, schools, our lives, we will die, America will crumble, we are already crumbling. Take refuge in the ONE who died for you, the ONE who shed His blood for you, the ONE who died for our sins, the ONE who sits at the right hand of the Father waiting to come and call His bride home.
Christ's return is close, closer than it was yesterday, are you ready? If you are, then pray for those that aren't and lift up those that were affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
