The Coming Storm

Exodus 20:18-21 (KJV) And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

I watched a tornado form in the sky as I drove home from work tonight. Cloud-to-ground lightning struck all around and strong winds blew debris against the car.

Traffic was light on the road--just me, the highway patrol and the storm chasers. Once I crossed the city limits, though, there were cars lining the street, with families out watching the storm move in. It seemed to be a carnival atmosphere. The storm sirens sounded as I made my way home.

Heed what Moses said in Exodus, "Fear not: for God is come to prove you." The storm is coming. Be prepared.
