On Sunday December 29, 2004, there was a .9 earthquake in Asia that caused a Tsunami, which took the lives of 80,000+ people. At the same time, freak rains in California were causing floods and destroying large areas. Husband and I were watching the news, which was filled with accounts of this extensive devastation. Seeking relief from the onslaught of upsetting news, we flipped the channel and caught a bit of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire: “Which word from Psalm 45 inspired a Proctor and Gamble product?” Husband turned to that psalm for our evening scripture reading, but accidentally read psalm 46 on the opposite page instead, which appropriately addressed the devastations we were hearing about with these timely words: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof…Be still, and know that I am God.”
Have you ever received an answer or comfort from reading the scriptures?
