Last week saw one of the greatest natural disasters to ever hit America. Thousands of families have lost everything they own, and lives were lost. In times like this it is understandable to wonder, or ask, “Where was God during hurricane Harvey?” In this episode of Lifeschool, we discuss this question and what our response as God’s family might look and sound like when disaster strikes.
We’ll also suggest a way to give financially to help the victims of this horrendous tragedy.
Why didn’t God cause the hurricane and heavy rains to turn back out to the ocean and miss all those people? Is he not in control of this world that he created? Or maybe God is punishing someone or some group of people as many in the media suggest.
UPDATE: Since we recorded this special episode a few days ago, sadly, the death toll from hurricane Harvey has risen from what we discussed.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- How the devastation caused by Harvey is affecting Caesar, Heath and their families
- Their thoughts and answer to the question of, “Where was God in the hurricane?”
- Does God simple react to disaster and the forces of nature or is he truly sovereign?
- How we can speak to others about this tragedy when they ask similar questions.
- A way to give financially to help the men, women and children ravaged by the storm.
When we stand face-to-face with God, some day, we will get a fuller answer and understanding to his ways and ultimate purposes in this world. Today we see through a mirror dimly and pray for wisdom, strength and the desire to truly embrace those in need.
Right now we have a great opportunity to show God’s great love and generosity in light of those in great need.
