The Power of God

I don't know if you have heard of the flooding in Arkansas and Missouri, but I am currently at my grandparents who live right where the Buffalo and White Rivers join together. Well, the river has risen about 40 or so feet here, (according to local knowledge). Just watching the river and seeing massive trees uprooted and carried downstream, it reminds me of the power of God. I can't explain it, but it is just such an awsome sight to see.. at a safe distance. I am suprised that there are a few of theses trees still standing. I never understood why we should fear God, but now I can see why! My pastor was teaching one Sunday that there are two ways of coming to God, by Mount Zion, or Mount Sinai (Zion being peacefully (saved) and Sinai being dangerously (unsaved)). Today was definitly a Sinai experience!

I know... sometimes it takes a flooding river to see the power of God, yet we can see the power of God by looking at a normal river, or trees, plants, flowers, animals... we should see the power of God in all of those, but sometimes you don't think about that 'till you almost have to evacuate a house because of a flooding river.

There is a song by Bill Gather that says: when time has surrendered and earth is more, I will cling to the old rugged cross.

We see the earth, feel it firmness but that song reminds us it will pass away, be gone under the power of God whose Word holds it together.

But we, all humans, will continue in a whole different sphere.

And in that sphere it is only the power of God which can save us from eternity in hell.

Let's hear it for the power of God!

Can you imagine what it was like when the whole earth was flooding and every person and all the animals were being destroyed save those on the Ark? Thank you God for the sign of the rainbow! Maybe these "small" floods are to remind us of the mighty power of God.
