At the end of October most of the northeast states were pelted with heavy snow over a weekend. Pictures of power lines and trees were shown laying on the ground weighted down with the snow. I read it on the computer news. "MANY HAVE NO POWER AFTER THE STORM".
I guess that's always the way it is, isn't it? When you are weak and the storms come along unexpectedly you are destined for a downfall. The heavy snow causes the smaller limbs and the weaker, some even dead, trees to fall and are destroyed. The power lines that were not replaced with underground cable were vulnerable to the harsh winds and snow.
How strong are you after, or during, a storm? Have you done the preparation needed to withstand not only the every day problems, but the days of tragedy and pain?
Cities across the nation should plan ahead for the easiest transition when the storms come. Even when they are most prepared they still can experience total shutdowns. But as a people of Jesus Christ we must prepare daily with God's Word and be fortified with His love. power, and protection against total shutdowns.
