What I Learned in a Florida Hurricane

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10

I was raised in South Florida, in what you might call hurricane alley. When we knew a hurricane was coming, my dad would say, “Boys, go out there in the back yard and tie things down,” patio furniture and things like that. Sometimes we would go out after a hurricane, and the thing we tied down was gone and the thing we tied it to was gone!

Now friend, you better be tied to Jesus, He won’t blow away. Where is your hope? Where is your security? What have you lashed your hope to? I hope it’s in the solid rock, the Lord Jesus Christ.
