Drought has been in the Midwest for more than a year. Photo January 28th 2013
This is a photo of the river with sandbars appearing in the low river.
We just received 1.4" of rain the last 2 days. Will this rain cause the river to rise at least 2' to cover the sandbar?
Hiking back out here at lunch today I see the river has risen a little but not enough. Photo January 31st 2013
In the Old Testament Omri was an evil king of Israel, he did more evil than all the kings that reigned before him. And his son Ahab reigned afterward. And this son Ahab did more evil even that his father.1 Kings 16:25,30. It is with this dire situation that Elijah shows up and says, "As the Lord, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word." 1 Kings 17:1
When drought comes I wonder if this is the judgment of God. I don't know if it is or not, but it is good to keep a humble heart before the Lord.
