God is our refuge and strength,

always ready to help in times of trouble.

So we will not fear when earthquakes come

and the mountains crumble into the sea.

Let the oceans roar and foam.

Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! Psalm 46:1-3

Something happened in Houston during the floods of Hurricane Harvey. The fourth largest city in the United States was brought to its knees. Fifty inches of rain fell in just three days. So much rain came down, in such a short time, that the city sank a quarter of an inch in sea level. Lives were lost, homes and property destroyed, and a huge population of people was left displaced and homeless.

Something else happened in the flood and devastation of Harvey. Every local news outlet sent the request out for prayer. All that was left to do was pray. First responders were left powerless to act in such a massive disaster. And then, the miracle happened. The rain was still pouring down when every available person with a boat came to the rescue. Caravans of more boats came from every corner of the country. The Cajun Navy from Louisianna and others with boats as far away as Washington State dropped everything in their lives to come to the rescue. Lives by the score were saved.

The floods in our lives are going to come. We will experience loss, pain, and uncertainty but God will always remain faithful to us. Even during the worst of storms, God will provide and bring comfort. In Hurricane Harvey, God was the first responder, making a way for thousands of people to be rescued. The same thing is happening for us in recovery. God is providing a way for us to be rescued from the floods of life. God sets us on dry land when everything else is underwater from the floods that come into our lives.

Father God, be with us when the rains come down and we are flooded with anxiety and uncertanty. You are the first responder. You are the one who comes to rescue when everything seems hopeless. Thank You for always brining daylight after the storm. Amen.
