God of the Sandstorm

If you’ve followed my post this week, you saw the one about the green dot.

My son in the army in Iraq was in a precarious position, life-threatening. Hundreds of folks back here in began to pray. The theme that many of them centered on was on making him and his fellow soldiers invisible to the enemy.

God responded with the unthinkable, though exactly in the way he was petitioned.

A massive sandstorm that created an absolute blackout situation for more than eight hours swooped down on them at practically the moment they headed out. For the enemy to attack, it was imperative for them to be able to see the soldiers. Though slow going for the soldiers to get back to their forward operating base, they arrived safely, without incident, because of the sandstorm.

The sandstorm was their protector.

Your thunder roared from the whirlwind;
xxxxxthe lightning lit up the world!
xxxxxThe earth trembled and shook.
Your road led through the sea,
xxxxxyour pathway through the mighty waters—
xxxxxa pathway no one knew was there!
xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx—Psalms 77:18-19

I am awed that I serve the God of the sandstorm…

  1. Awe! Awesome! When that word is finally used within a context that is truly deserving of its intent, it finally regains its meaning doesn’t it? The God of the sandstorm is the God of all creation. He inspires awe and we should be thankful that He even notices us, much less that He should pour out His love and grace on us every day. I join you Joe in gratitude that He heard the prayers of His people and protected Jeremy.
