We took the family to visit Niagara Falls. The sheer magnificence of the view across the falls left me speechless. I felt the earth shudder beneath my feet as I stood gazing down at the Horseshoe Falls. The rushing water thundered past me as it plummeted to the river below. I felt insignificant as I stared in awe at God’s creation. I recognized the strength of my God at that moment. He is a mighty God.I felt insignificant as I stared in awe at God’s creation.

Our adventures continued for the next few days. We rode the churning white waters at the bottom of the falls in the Hornblower boat and got soaked in the process. We took the Aerocar over the swirling whirlpool at the bend in the river. And we walked along a path next to the river as we witnessed the incredible strength of the category six rapids.
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.1 Peter 5:6
A Mighty God
From the trail, I spotted a rock near the edge of the rapids and noticed a small tree clinging to it. Turbulent waters raced past the tree as it held on tightly. The stone and the sapling seemed like the current would engulf them at any moment, washing them away forever. I watched earnestly. I felt a sense relieve to be standing on firm ground instead of clinging to a rock in a raging river.God provides us with a firm foundation against any problems life gives us. Sometimes, He may calm the waters, but other times He will soothe our hearts. Click To Tweet
But isn’t that how we live our lives? Troubles and trials surge around us and threaten to swamp us at any moment. The COVID-19 virus threatens our way of life for a long time to come. Many people wonder where to turn during these troubled times. What can we cling to until the turbulent waters recede? Just like the river rock I witnessed, I can hold onto our Mighty God. He is our rock. We can cling to Him in times of trouble.
Unlike the stone I observed, Jesus will never get overtaken by the raging waters. He provides us with a firm foundation against any problems life gives us. Sometimes, He may calm the waters, but other times He will soothe our hearts. Either way, the safest place to be during a storm, is with our roots sunk deep into the rock of our salvation. Cling to Jesus.
But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.”Luke 22:69
Dear Heavenly Father, you are my rock and my strength. You are a mighty God. When troubles arise, help me to cling to you only. Calm my heart and strengthen my faith to trust in You all the days of my life. Amen.
