As many face storms in our own lives and possible actual hurracaine or wildfires, oh friends we need the reminder of what our Mighty God is able to do!
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” [Matthew 7:24-27 ESV]
Currently, I am facing neither physical hurracaine or wildfire at the moment. I am caught by these two words though, “torrent rain” in the Living Bible (TLB).
25 Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise and the storm winds beat against his house, it won’t collapse, for it is built on rock.
We can face the most chaotic storms and circumstances of our entire lives, yet our God is still in absolute control! Nothing is too great or grave for our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ to handle.
You know what blows my mind? Even when there are torrent rains at work, we can still stand tall against the circumstances we are placed in. Our fain in Christ can still be greater. We can still overcome even the greatest obstacles, because of our great God!
Seriously y’all, that puts on display the power of our Most High God!
And, that is amazing. There is no one like our God. And no circumstance, no matter how debilitating, could ever be a honest struggle for the Lord to handle. He is sovereign! He is in total control! There is no One like our God! He is the only One who can truly and confidently save us!
