The Mercy Of Our Great God And King


Please pray for the students and the families of the students who attend Union University. Also pray for the people over this region who have also lost posessions but more importantly for those who have lost family and friends.
Lord please comfort those who have experienced loss. May their faces turn to you and seek you as a result of this horrible event. Father, we thank You for your mercy. We thank You for not allowing that tornado to do more damage than what it did.
It is clear to us Father that the injuries and fatalities could have been far greater. And we recognize that it is by your hand that more sorrow did not occur. Your are the All Powerful One. You are the One in control of the waves and the wind. It is by Your very command that the wind lies down and the seas instantly grow calm. Lord, we dont know know exactly why You didn't command this storm to dissipate in an instant. We do know and acknowledge that You and You alone are the King and Maker of the universe and that You and You alone are the Sovereign One, knowing that we deserve far worse than what a storm can bring. Lord may our hearts be crushed for those who gone through these storms who do not know you; people who have not hope. May our hearts cry out as one, begging for the lives who are without hope to have Hope, that Hope being You Lord.
Those of us who do have this Hope, thank You for that. We thank You that we can rest in knowing that no matter what happens You are working all things towards Your ultimate goal; that goal being Your glory; a glory that gives us happiness in You.
Lord, allow those who are now without hope, those who have lost posessions, friends and loved ones know,that as bad as things are now, things could have been much worse. May they see that it is by Your common grace that things were not worse, so that that Your saving grace may be known. Give them joy in realizing that they have been spared and that they now have time to repent.
And dear Lord, of our brothers and sisters who have gone through this, again, those who do have hope, may they also see your common grace so that they may cry out to you for strength and in thanksgiving, giving You glory and honor.
Amen

Greetings all,

You speak the words but do not see nor hear them, thereby stumbling blind in the midst of light and freezing in the face of heat...

Perhaps you have misinterpreted the true meaning and import of this event and others. Destruction is not a blessing, and supporting war mongers is "living by the sword." The time for the removal of ignorance is upon us all !!

Patience and humility...

Be aware that what I say is intended to make people uncomfortable with the status quo so we can finally forge that long promised new path to the future. Here is the chance to truly understand the Creator’s expectations, which do not include money, religion, and politics. The truth will be a bitter pill to many, so remember that patience and humility are wise virtues and repeatedly scoffing in the face of profundity is great folly !!

Here is Wisdom...

Peace...

Seven star hand,

Thank you for reading and responding.
I disagree. I believe that I both see and hear the words just fine.
No where did I say that destruction is a blessing. I said that God's mercy was a blessing, a blessing that we do not deserve. What did I say that made you think that I said something as silly as that? And for war mongers . . . ???. . . Where did that come from?

Never mind, now I know where that came from . . . I went to your blog.
Oh and by the way, THIS is wisdom... http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=24&chapter=1&version=31
