Romans 8:19 (NASB): For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
The onward advance of hurricane irma across the Caribbean, Florida and Georgia gave us believers another chance to be the Sons of God that we have been called to be. We have been told in Genesis 1:28 to subdue the earth. Jesus spoke to the storm in Mark 4:35-41, and Jesus said in John 14:12:
12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.
In this program we talk about the faith that God has blessed us with, to use in situations such as this. That Jesus doesn’t expect to speak to the storm, he expects US to speak to them instead! That is because we can, because being born again, we are in Christ, and He is in us. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us! (Philippians 4:13).
Anything that kills is an enemy of God. That means it’s an enemy of God’s children – His Sons. God gave us control of the earth (see Psalms 115:16), so let us use the authority and dominion in Christ that we have been blessed with, and bring heaven to earth once and for all. Let us speak to this storm, and to every storm and mountain in our lives, in the name of Jesus and faith in that name!
