“After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree” (Revelation 7:1).
Who created the earth? Who can calm the sea with a word? We modern people discount what Scripture says and we may forget that this creation belongs to the Lord. Does He still use weather to get our attention? The Lord uses everything to get our attention. Why do you think this is mere superstition? The Lord will stop at nothing to gain your attention so that you may give up the rebellion and join with Him. Do you not know that the LORD abounds in steadfast love?
Lord, many miraculous things have taken place around me in my lifetime and I discount them as just chance or natural occurrences. You are Lord of all and You have set all things upon their course. Help me to never forget that You alone are Lord, and of course the four winds are in Your hands. If You still the wind, You have a purpose. Help me to look to You for all things knowing that in You is true life and eternal liberty.
Thank You, Lord, for reminding me that all things are in Your hands. In one sense, all things are natural so that when I hear of something being unnatural, I can smile and know that Your hand has stilled the storm or allowed a storm to come raging in for Your own purpose. Lead me, Lord, in thanksgiving that You will stop at nothing to fulfill the promise that all things will work together for good for those who love You. Amen.
