Hurricane Ike – Coming our way

Posted by Jim Rector on September 12, 2008

We’re hunkered down here at our house in Missouri City, TX. They say the storm is coming our way with expected wind in our area of about 85 MPH. Our Pastor, Travis Cardwell just wrote the following:

Dear Saints at Redeemer,

 I know that I am writing to a group of people that believe Zechariah 10:1 which describes the LORD as the one “who makes the storm clouds…”  We know that God’s sovereign hand stores up the waters and tells the stars when to shine.  It is a humbling thing to know that we have absolutely no control over hurricane Ike as it gains strength in the Gulf.  We are reminded of the way that the Psalmist described the Lord as one who “makes the clouds His chariot…who walks upon the wings of the wind! ”  “He looks at at the earth and it trembles…he touches the mountains and they smoke… (Psalm 104:3;32)!”  It is a comfort to know that no matter how out of control the storm may seem, the Lord is guiding every raindrop and wave. 

I agree. I’ll post again when possible.
