Storms of Life

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 5, 2019

         HURRICANE DORIAN HAS SET A RECORD IN WHAT IS LIKELY THE STRONGEST KNOWN HURRICANE IN HISTORY. CERTAIN POLITICIANS ARE BLAMING PRESIDENT TRUMP, IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT. IT’S BECAUSE HE HASN’T BOUGHT INTO THEIR CLIMATE CHANGE RELIGION AND DOESN’T WANT TO SPEND TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON THINGS THAT WON’T CHANGE ANYTHING. WEATHER IS CYCLICAL. DON’T BE FOOLED. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.

         SOMEONE HAS COUNTED THE NUMBER OF REFERENCES TO STORMS IN SCRIPTURE AND COME UP WITH 37. ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS OF COURSE IS WHEN JESUS CALMS A STORM ON THE SEA OF GALILEE, DEMONSTRATING HIS POWER OVER THE WEATHER.

         THE BOOK OF JOB CONTAINS THESE VERSES: “IT’S NOISE DECLARES HIS PRESENCE” AND “YOU LIFT ME UP TO THE WIND AND CAUSE ME TO RIDE; AND YOU DISSOLVE ME IN A STORM.”

         THEN, THERE IS PSALM 55:8 – “I WOULD HASTEN TO MY PLACE OF REFUGE FROM THE STORMY WIND AND TEMPEST.”

         IT’S NICE TO KNOW THAT EVEN IN THE MIDST OF STORMS, WHETHER THEY BE WEATHER RELATED OR THE STORMS OF LIFE, WE HAVE A PLACE OF REFUGE. GOD NEVER LOSES CONTROL. MAY HE PROTECT ALL IN THE PATH OF DORIAN AND RESTORE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN HARMED. I’M CAL THOMAS.
