Psalms 91:4

He will cover you with his feathers, 

and under his wings you will find refuge;

Luke 21:11

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

Matthew 24:7-8

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 

There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

Storms of life rage like hurricanes. As we enter the 2019 hurricane season, one can’t help but remember the hurricanes they’ve endured. In 2004, Florida had four back-to-back. Hurricane Irma was the last to rage through our neck of Florida woods. When storms roar in lifeweather or otherwise, ask God for help. A group of prayer warriors prayed that the hurricane would decrease in category and speed before it hit, and it did. If you put your faith and trust in Him, He will carry you through the storms with peace.

Being from Louisiana and becoming a Florida transplant, I’ve endured my share. Hurricanes happen often in Louisiana and Florida. I grew up with them, but until 2004, I had never seen four hit a state back to back. Hurricane Dorian is our latest, one that just seems to keep going and never give up. Once again, I thank God for decreasing the speed and the route. I never want to see a Category 5, especially after seeing what one did to parts of Florida when Hurricane Andrew hit and after seeing what Dorian done before packing her suitcase and traveling our coast, taking the coast all the way to Maine. God forbid.

In 2004, the year I lost my youngest sister, the heavens raged. Storm clouds covered the land and hurricanes blew in from the sea. That year, twelve blustery ones battered American shores. Ironically, the last, a storm named Lisa, my sister’s name, was tiny and non-threatening like her. It eventually faded out over land. On September 13, a summons came for Lisa. Sent on a mission, angels ferried another angel home. Lisa proved because of Christ, even in death, there’s hope when those she left behind were left with only memories and the hope of seeing her again in heaven.

Hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires engulf us more than normal along with our personal storms of life. IGod talking to us and telling us to be prepared by being ready? These events are birth pains, so as when a woman goes into labor, it isn’t long until the baby is born. Jesus is knocking at our doors. Invite Him into your hearts and homes and be prepared. Be ready. Pray continuously and don’t give up. Ask others to pray with you.

I pray for all those who have endured hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires. Remember to praise God and ask for His help. Ride out the storms in your life with Him. Keep the faith. Prayer works.
