If you aren't already, please spend some time praying for people in the path of cyclone Yasi. This is now officially the biggest cyclone in Australia's history. It is affecting a huge area of coastline and the adjacent inland. The cyclone is due to cross the coast tonight and is estimated to take 24 hours to pass. That is a long time to be bunkered down somewhere with kids and pets with massive gale force winds.
Don has already been advised that he will most likely be flying out tomorrow for two weeks with the fleet of blackhawks to help with aid and recovery. The government is not taking this storm threat lightly and neither should we.
God can protect people even in the midst of the biggest storm. Call out to him for mercy and protection.
...And here on Earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring of the seas and strange tides. People will be terrified at what they see coming on the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken... (Luke 21:25-26)
Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.
