During an October dry spell in...

During an October dry spell in southern California my family, a friend, and I drove out into a canyon where some friends of ours have a ranch. As we approached their place, we saw that a forest fire, whipped by a strong wind, was threatening their house. When we arrived at the ranch, we found that the people there were very much worried, as the situation looked serious. Someone said, "This is too big for us." I immediately declared, "It is not bigger than God."

We were forced to return by another route, as the road by which we had come was closed because of the fire. As we left the canyon the flames had jumped in several places and were leaping to what seemed to be over a hundred feet high. I declared to all in the car that it was a false picture, and the words from Psalms (46:10,) came to me: "Be still, and know that I am God;" then I knew the work was done.
