I cannot imagine the terror that ensues when the earth shakes. For many Haitians, the earth is the only truth they have, the only constant resource on which they can rely. Where do their spirits sink when their earth betrays them? Haitians need food, water, medicine, education. In their desperation for these resources, some are blind to seeing what they lack most desperately is the Lord. There is a God powerful enough to ease hunger pangs, quench thirst without water, heal the sick and teach without textbooks. There is a great enough God to know and heal every one. There is a God great enough to cover their sin and protect them in His love when the bitter earth wages war. There is a God great enough to be the real solid rock when even the earth shakes under our feet. Do not trust anything in your sight- even the earth will betray you. Hold on tight to the Lord, who does not betray. Haiti was not forsaken. God never left.
God is bigger than the earth. He brought it into creation under His rule and His power. Gravity may fail, floods may cover the earth, asteroids may collide. It is not out of the realm of possibility that the earth will fall away from under our feet. God is still alive. Hold on tight, He will not let you go.
