“He spoke, and there came a swarm of flies and gnats in all their territory. He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.” (Psalm 105:31-32)


Do you not realize that the Lord speaks through His creation? The modern mind discounts these things as superstitious. But what is the claim of global warming but the same kind of belief, only with man as the cause? Is it not the Lord who controls His creation and He will do as He determined from the beginning? Do not look merely at what we mere mortals can do, but at what the Creator of the universe is doing.

Lord, help me to not get caught up in the thinking of men who reject You. Regardless of how or why things are the way they are, guide me to see in You alone the hope of glory. Lead me through the morass of this world to see that You alone have all authority and power. We may have our effects in this world, but it is You who controls the universe. Guide me into Your presence, O Lord, that I may abide with You.

Lord Jesus, You have told us that you have all authority and power. Keep this truth close to my heart that I would see through the liars and fakers to know that although we each have our part in events, it is You who governs the universe. May I learn to come into Your presence with humility, You are the God through whom all things have their being and in You alone is the promise of salvation. Amen.
