A Present Help

Yesterday, I caught a portion of a local news station’s coverage of the tornadoes that hit NC. During the segment, they interviewed a woman who survived the fiasco. She recalled how the severity of the storm forced her to take cover in her bathtub. Before the interview concluded, she told the world why she survived, “Honestly, it was God that brought us out.”

When I heard her answer, I smiled. Isn’t that just like God? He’s always there and able to help rescue us from trouble. I’ve talked to others who survived the tornadoes, and their rationale is the same: God kept them. Truly, He is our refuge and strength!

Since God can rescue us from circumstances we shouldn’t survive, He gets my vote for the most valuable power in the world. And, if you have survived anything that you shouldn’t have, then follow David’s advice, “Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together” (Psalm 34:3, NLT).
