Waves, God and Helping Japan

This past week in light of the tragedy in Japan, I have spent some time thinking about just how BIG our God really is and how quickly we love to put Him into our little spiritual boxes in order to feel as though we are in control and thus comfortable with our image/view of God.

In light of that, I took some time to read Job 38-39 again in order to remind myself of the vast power and might of our God. I was also reminded of this as a fellow team member was sharing with the ministry leaders of Grace how God had been working in her heart through the account of the sun standing still in order to grant Joshua the victory in Joshua 10. God is that big!!!

Take some time to read Job 38-39 or at least the snippet included below;

"Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt." (Job 38:8-11)

Also, if you are looking for a safe place to help the victims of Japan, you can do so through our partners at GBIM (Grace Brethren International Mission).
