But the Lord can also turn deserts into lakes and scorched land into flowing streams. Psalm 107:35
Who remembers the drought and the bush fires? They seem to have been consumed by a virus. As I sit here in my office listening to the rain I was reminded of how God is actually in control.
Not so long ago, the media first portrayed Australia being totally devastated by drought claiming that this had never happened before [unprecedented] (despite history telling a different story) and we were doomed unless we all stopped breathing. Next came the fires, these too were the worst in history, [unprecedented] so they claimed, as they forgot to read the old newspapers and history books. Now we couldn’t breath because of the smoke.
People began to pray. What happened! God turned up with His fire hose and drowned the fires to which people then complained about floods. However the rivers have been turned into flowing streams and the deserts into lakes and the drought has almost gone and the fires definitely have – looks like an answer to prayer to me.
So where does that leave us with the virus, we need to pray like never before, to pray like the people did during the Spanish flu, to pray like the people did during the great plagues. Then God will listen and answer at just the right time.
So let us pray.
