There are many disasters today such as earthquakes, floods, droughts and wide spread sicknesses. These type calamities will bring people to the house of God for comfort and He hears and answers them.
In our hearts we know right from wrong. The continuous urge to become involved in the fleeting pleasures of the world is hard to resist. When friends are encouraging us to join in and go against our consciences it adds additional pressure on us. When these inner battles become so intense to the point of being a full blown war we are invited to stand in the presence of God and ask for grace. He will equip us with everything we need to resist. Many times He will require us to walk away from situations that tempt us or separate from certain lifestyles in order to regain strength to resist. There is nothing too hard for God. He changes hearts. He changes mind sets. All that is needed is a sincere willingness to stand for what is right and faith in God to see us through. He will accept us no matter what we are facing in life. He understands all things.
2 Chronicles 20:9
They said, ‘Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as war, plague, or famine, we can come to stand in Your presence before this Temple where Your name is honored. We can cry out to you to save us, and You will hear us and rescue us.’
