There was a great hurricane just off the coast heading
toward the town.

The church people gathered to pray.

One deacon prayed,
"Lord, send us the spirit of the Children of Israel.
Lord, send us the spirit of the Children of Abraham.
Lord, send us the spirit of the Children of Moses."

The pastor prayed,
"Lord, don't send anyone, come Yourself!
This ain't no time for children!"

Eph 1:10-12
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might
gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are
in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance,
being predestinated according to the purpose of Him
who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory,
who first trusted in Christ.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Jesus Christ is the focal point of all things in heaven and earth.
He is the foundation; the "first-born;" the Sustainer; King of Kings;
Lord of Lords; and the One in Whom we have obtained the
inheritance of heaven.

Everything in divine revelation is centered in Christ!

This is the ground of hope for believers!
When we cannot understand why things happen as they do,
we can rely upon the eternal purpose of God.

God has always been and always will be PRESENT in His creation.
By His presence, He is moving all things forward to His eternal purpose.
He is importing grace, mercy, and salvation through Christ.

Praise God for His PRESENCE!!
He sees the whole from every corner!
He know the END from the beginning!
Every timber, brick - even every nail and tack, in your spiritual house,
is "purposed" by His loving care and omniscient concern!

You can trust Him that ALL believers will be "gathered in ONE,"
and will REMAIN "to the praise of His glory!!"

When you cannot understand,
when you can't fathom His plan,

Love ya!
