God is With Us in Time of Trouble

Psalm 46:1-3 (KJV)
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. [2] Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; [3] Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

These verses regarding the roaring water speak to what is currently going on in a large part of the Eastern portion of our country. It is very clear that we should not fear the rages of nature. Our Heavenly Father is in charge of it all. He allows these things to admonish, teach and prepare us for things He needs is to understand.

So many do not understand why God would allow tragedies. He is ultimately patient with us. There does come a time when He must get our attention. On most occasions He does this quietly and on an individual basis. Sometimes it is in a loud, large and public way. Natural disasters are one of those ways. They get our attention and the attention of the world.

2 Peter 3:9 (KJV)
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Do these events change us to look toward God? I would say most of the time, they do not. We forget so quickly. We do not learn from the past. We do not remember our cries to Him in times of trouble. Be sure of this, God never forgets.

Isaiah 49:15 (KJV)
Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
