Note: folks in the New York metro area should rethink driving into the city today. Quoth this guy:
First, I give you a practical word I received for my own direction. If possible lay in store a thirty-day supply of non-perishable food, toiletries and other essentials. In major cities, grocery stores are emptied in an hour at the sign of an impending disaster.
As for our spiritual reaction, we have but two options. This is outlined in Psalm 11. We â€œflee like a bird to a mountain.â€ Or, as David says, â€œHe fixed his eyes on the Lord on his throne in heavenâ€”his eyes beholding, his eyelids testing the sons of menâ€ (v. 4). â€œIn the Lord I take refugeâ€ (v. 1).
I will say to my soul: No need to run…no need to hide. This is Godâ€™s righteous work. I will behold our Lord on his throne, with his eye of tender, loving kindness watching over every step I takeâ€”trusting that he will deliver his people even through floods, fires, calamities, tests, trials of all kinds.
Note: I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off. I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.
