Maturing in the Storm

After re-reading a post I wrote about last year's Gulf Storms, and then praying about Hurricane Florence that just hit the Carolina's, I realized I’ve matured spiritually. Prayerfully, you have too. Last year, I thought that as believers, we could pray away the storm; and in some instances, we can. But Matthew 24:6, 7 Jesus says, “See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to passthere will beearthquakes in various places.” Ordinarily, you’d think that earthquake means earthquake. But the Greek definition is, ‘a commotion, i.e. (of the air) a gale, (of the ground) an earthquake.’ Therefore, earthquakes also refer to hurricanes. Which means, as believers, we cannot pray away some hurricanes, because as the Lord told us, ‘these things must come to pass.’ With that being said, surely, the Lord doesn’t want lives lost and belongings destroyed, does He? Absolutely not!
