Uncertainties

“Trust in the Lord forever, 
For in God the Lordwe have an everlasting Rock.
Isaiah 26:4

October 7
Last week, in my quiet time in the shower, the word "uncertainty"  was impressed upon my mind. Inquiring of the Lord, where He might be going with that the thought, came reality that the only thing we are certain of is that we will die someday.

Our daughter and her family embarked on a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas on Monday. The uncertainties in the weather found them rerouted on a ship to Cozumel, Mexico.  They were to return today to Port Canaveral, but that port is closed so they are still sailing around the Gulf.  Hurricane Mathew has brought about tremendous uncertainties this past week and he continues to leave questions in the air.  We continue to pray the storm takes a westward bend back out to sea.

One power outage these storm victims will not have is loss of the power of Jesus. No storm can blow that away.  Unexpected storms in life will blow our way, but Paul so eloquently reminds us what our faith rests upon in 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

"And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God.  For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.  I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God."
