There’s a Shaking Going On!

Earthquakes, Fires, earthquake Flash floods, Hurricanes, Tsumami’s, even sink holes

Things, uncommon things, are happening in our earth, to our earth.

flood

Newsflash?  I think not . . . we all live here and see / experience them.

Blizzards . . . continuing into spring time!

Devastation all around us. Air currents changed. Temperatures have no rhyme or reason to them. Things just seem ‘different’… well, they are. We can all wonder ‘why’. We can debate about the ‘global warming’, or ‘global cooling’, or ozone layers, sun flares, etc., but debating can not change what is happening.

In reading Nahum this morning, chapter 1, Holy Spirit opened my eyes to something. It reads “1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite. 2 God is jealous, and the LORD avenges; the LORD avenges and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserves wrath for his enemies. 3 The LORD is slow to anger and great in power and will not at all treat the guilty as though they were innocent; the LORD whose way is in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. 4 He reprehends the sea and makes it dry and dries up all the rivers; Bashan was destroyed, and Carmel; and the flower of Lebanon was destroyed. 5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, and the world and all that dwell therein. 6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. 7 The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those that trust in him.” Jubliee Bible Translation (provided through Bible Study Tools)

The enlightment I had was this . . . ALL these ‘things’ that are happening is the earths response to God’s anger . . . He is also a loving, gracious God full of compassion and is holding back the full force of His wrath . . . but . . . the earth is responding . . .

So . . . do we live in fear of His wrath? If we don’t KNOW Him, yes, I would be quaking in my boots to say the least, but look at verse 7 again . . . “God is good, a hiding place in tough times. He recognizes and welcomes anyone looking for help” The Message Bible. We are safe and secure in HIM even if/when these disasters come upon us, He is our Shelter, our Provider, our Comfort, our Strength, our constant Friend. Nothing can ever separate us from His Love!!!

“Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture: They kill us in cold blood because they hate you. We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one. None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing – nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable – absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” Romans 8:35-39 The Message

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
