Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda still on my mind but it was about bedtime, so I knelt to pray and asked God for guidance. I laid on my bed and idea of breakwater came to mind. In layman's term it is some sort of structure for slowing down sea or ocean waves. I got up. turned on my laptop and looked up breakwater. I found out Japan made a lot of research and application with them. Things are going well I thought till I ran into an article about the limitation or even failure of breakwater.
Then remembering what I read in the Bible where it says " Except God or the Lord watched the city they labor in vain those who watch it".What is the message here ? Man has a tendency to rely on his capacity or ability rather than calling on God first who is our first line of defense.
We have seen the devastation of typhoon Haiyan and massive worldwide efforts to deal with it, but have anyone considered calling on God first ?
Since the typhoon was not stopped and when people saw the damage , one commented " God must be somewhere else ." When I first read about this I said to myself , of course God is there. But where was God you may ask ? Perhaps or most likely or of course God is there, but perhaps nobody called and believe that God can stop the typhoon.
