The Flood

Recently we had a pipe burst at our house.  Many of you know how that feels.  The winter we have had has been crazy.  On Wednesday night, I have been teaching from Dr. Ronnie Floyd’s book The Power of Prayer and Fasting. I highly recommend this book.  it is no accident that during this study, most of our downstairs was flooded.  We had just replaced carpets and kitchen flooring in our house last summer, and another day I will post the devotional that will come out of this as my sister-in-law said.  For now, just know that God is taking are of every detail in restoring our home.  These verses were a part of our chapter that we studies tonight and I just wanted to share this one example of how God is speaking to me through our experience.

Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.

Isaiah 58:9, 11-12
