Isaiah 41:13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Psalm 22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
As I sit here still reeling from the devastating news, of the earthquake in Haiti, I can only hope for a revival in that nation. Our Lord Jesus Christ told us that His strength is perfected in our weakness and I pray that people in that nation cry out to Him and all of us who care pray to The Lord for healing, rescue and mercy there as well. It’s hard to fathom the extent of damage that affected one third of the nations and casualties possibly approaching one hundred thousand.
In this all, The Lord is there. He is there if we make our bed in hell, He is there. As hard as it may seem in the midst of such a catastrophe, God is there. My prayer is for the people suffering and hurting right now to see Him. To call out to The Lord. To call out to Jesus.
And as we pray for this nation, we can also help. There are websites which can show you how you can donate money, which is the most immediate need at present. Even a $1 donation can go a long way. We must show the love of Christ and extend our help to the people there. Whether it’s money, going to help in person or sending supplies, all things can be done to God’s glory. And of course, keep praying.
