It’s not just the heat. It’s the heat and the humidity combined that generate weather power: hot water fuels a hurricane and low pressure increases the devastation.
I love the weather. I love watching the weather. I love watching people try to predict the weather. I love trying to predict it myself. I love the power of a good storm. Growing up in MN, I loved watching intense thunderstorms and loved loved loved watching intense blizzards that brought thundersnow. Now that we have lived in Florida for 15 years, I have learned about a whole new pattern of weather and how hot water affects it.
You see, the hotter the Gulf of Mexico, the more intense the hurricanes can be when they form in the fall. The summer of 2005 the water in the shallows of the Gulf was 95 degrees and the deep water was almost 90. Those high water temperatures combined with week frontal boundaries created a petri dish for growing powerful hurricanes like Katrina and Rita. The devastation leveled by those two storms is still being felt today all over the northern Gulf seacoast.
Just as the right combination of water temperature and wind create a powerful hurricane, the right combination of obedience and Holy Spirit Power combine to devastate the enemy’s stronghold in our workplaces and our neighborhoods.
There is power in the name of Jesus.
Most of you have sung that song, but do we really believe it. The same Holy Spirit who came and wreaked havoc on the day of Pentecost almost 2000 years ago, is just as powerful today. Let’s pray for the powerful combination of obedience and Holy Spirit to have victory over the enemy. You will be used to leave a lasting impact on the lives of those you work with. It’s the iWork4Him way.
