Water runs downhill, as my engineer father often says. He’s right I realized yet again while sitting in my car watching a torrential spring downpour.
The rain always flowed the same direction...downhill (shocker!). But this storm system came with gusting wind and the wind happened to be going uphill. As furious blasts of wind rocked my car, I noticed that for a moment the water stopped running downhill. It paused and puddled until the wind receded. Then the rain went right back to doing what physics says it must.
Sometimes we live in those gusts of wind. Evil looks like it is winning. Wrong has the upper hand. The world is so dark and angry it looks like God is losing. But just as water always runs downhill. God’s kingdom flows downhill. The wind eventually loses speed and strength, and the water continues doing what the laws of physics say it must. Satan and his horde will be overcome. God’s plans will be victorious. Because the laws of spiritual physics say,
“The Lamb will overcome them, for He is the Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”– Revelation 17:14
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
