The pastor’s heart goes out to those being affected by Sandy; that massive storm hitting the east coast.  I have bee watching the Weather Channel this morning and seeing reports of what is going on and then the reporters saying the worst is yet to come.


High winds
Rain and snow
Power outages
Storm surge

So many people are going to be affected; not just on the coast but way into the mainland; as far in as Ohio.  A large mass of area feeling the effects of Mother Nature’s fury.  And in the midst of such chaos it is easy to lose perspective and become despondent.

I believe Satan uses such weather events in an attempt to drive a wedge between people and God as every year Mother Nature proves to be a formidable foe.  But not even Hurricane Sandy can stand up to the sovereignty of God.


Please be in prayer for those being effected.
Please be in prayer for those relief workers.
Consider giving to relief organizations.
Don’t lose faith.
Don’t stop praying once the storm passes.
And remember…

God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
[Psalm 46:1-3]
We have an awesome God.  May God be praised even in this massive storm.

Please remember and pray for those who were affected by this massive storm before it hit the U.S.  The people of Haiti, Cuba, etc.  Lives were lost and property destroyed.  A friend of mine brought this to my attention which shows how biased the media is when it comes to these natural disasters.  I never even considered where this storm came from.  For that I repent.
