High Winds and God's help

Safe in all kinds of weather

THE WINDOWS WERE rattling unnervingly that night, and the near-hurricane-force winds were wildly whipping the towering trees surrounding our house. I was home alone, and I had never experienced wind so fierce. "What if a tree crashes on our house?" I thought. "I wish someone else were here." "What am I going to do?" This kind of thinking wasn't doing me (or anyone else in the neighborhood) much good, I soon realized. So I began praying in earnest.

For centuries, people who were afraid have turned to the Bible for God's help. And it was God who gave me the solid help I needed during the storm that night. These spiritually powerful words from Paul comforted me: "I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Rom. 8:38, 39).
