Jesus owns the universe. He possesses EVERYTHING, wealth unimaginable. He is God, a Holy perfect spirit being… yet He gave all that up to inhabit a cursed human body for 30 years. The height of Christ’s status compared to the baseness of we stupid humans is an unfathomable chasm. Jesus’ sacrifice for us was profound.Read more →
WE determine whether our sorrows will be Godly or worldly. Will we cry out to God in our sorrows and draw near to Him for comfort and guidance? Or will we become bitter and angry at Him?

When God makes a big move, the entire earth responds. ALL of creation is subject to its Creator. Every time Moses went up to the mountain to meet with God there were earthquakes, storms, and whirlwinds. It is no different today.
