A Great Calm

Thank you, Lord, for your supernatural help regarding lives and property in the midst of the Florida storm. We continue to look to you and your mercies and speak in faith, over the storm/situation….

“On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, ‘Let us cross over to the other side.’ Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, ‘Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?’ Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, ‘Peace, be still!’ And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, ‘Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?’ And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, ‘Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!’” Mark 4:35-41 NKJV

Only the Lord knows the “why’s” behind the present storm, but I’m reminded of the book by William R. Koenig, Eye to Eye. That book documents disasters that have occurred due to lack of understanding regarding Israel. The U.S. President recently, and in July, stated his administration’s endorsement of a two-state solution, which does not agree with God’s plans for Israel.

In Eye to Eye, author William R. Koenig documents the consequences of denying Israel’s right to its land, a promise by God made in Genesis:

“Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, ‘To your descendants I will give this land.’ And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.” Genesis 12:7 (And see Genesis 12:1-3)

You can find detailed reviews of the book, Eye to Eye, at Amazon, where it’s sold.

(One example was the U.S. endorsement or support, in 2005, of evicting Jewish settlers from their homes in Gaza. Just days after that eviction, hurricane Katrina came upon the U.S.)

Again, only God knows the reasons behind situations and disasters; but we must continue to pray and believe God for leadership that understands His heart, on this and so many matters, as stated in the Bible.
