Fear. Devastation. Billions of Dollars. That’s what fills the minds of Americans as they look at this picture. So how can we, as Americans… but first as Christians, look at Hurricane Sandy with a different perspective.
There is no getting around the fact that Hurricane Sandy has brought terrible devastation to the lives of those involved. People have died and their homes have been destroyed.
Yet. In the midst of the damage, in the midst of the distress, God is in control.
Our first thought shouldn’t be fear – Our first thought should be prayer.
Our first thought shouldn’t be devastation – Our first thought should be redemption.
For we know that in the midst of the damage, in the midst of the distress, there is a future hope of God’s greater plan. This too shall pass. There is healing and hope that remains.
1 Corinthians 13:13, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.”
