For the Lord takes delight in his people;

     He crowns the humble with victory.  

Psalms 149:4 NIV

These past few days have been filled with the unexpected and the unwanted!  The hurricane wasted no time devastating the lives of so many people.  From evacuations to trees falling to power outages, everyone felt the wrath of the wind.  As tumultuous as the experience was, the grace of God yet prevailed.  Our rest must be in relying upon Gods power and His total control.

Many of us were spared and able to manage our challenges.  However, when the wind and the rain ceased, the aftermath has proven to be just as catastrophic. Many of the roads are closed and water has covered areas that were once visible and served as navigating landmarks.

Law enforcement has been stationed to try to warn travelers of pending danger ahead.  It’s understandable to experience frustration when one is not able to go forward with their previous plans and have to seek an alternate unknown route.  But forging forward in the face of imminent danger after clear warning is a sign of pride on parade and risky rebellion.

There are experiences and encounters in life where “compliance is the way of wisdom”.

The human nature can tempt one to persist in their planned path, however, the risk and outcome can take a route that leads to ruin.  Sitting with a storm can be so unsettling and full of anxiety to say the least. We must trust that Jesus cares about our end state and has not lost His full vigilance of our situation.

There will continue to be unexpected storms and closed roadways in this walk of life. Always remember that healthy compliance and wisdom always finds a way through.  As life returns to routine and normal, make sure your house and affairs are in order and you are insured and assured with eternal life. It is the only true safe refuge.

Romans 10:8-10 KJV

[8] But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [9] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. [10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Under His Mercy,

Apostle Nixon
