Yes, HARVEY, is bigger than any other hurricane encountered by Texas in history.  Yes, it’s big, BUT GOD!

Greater than the universe is our GOD!

Testimonies and evidence of the resiliency and overcoming power of humanity is proven to be of Greater affect than even a Category 3 Hurricane. Why? Look at the lives that were changed in greater ways than any destruction.  People who may not have even known their neighbor, became neighbors and a blessing to those in need.  There is only ONE race, the human race and when the human race pulls together, nothing can be restrained from them. Nothing can be withheld.  That is the word being spoken even now.  “We shall rebuild! Rebuild desolate places. Raise up the foundation of many generations. Don’t quit, Rebuild!” Why? Because GOD makes Rivers in the desert and paths to dwell in. (Isaiah 58:6-12; Isaiah 43:19)

Greater than the universe is our GOD! Greater than anything you could ever face.
 Isaiah 58:6-12The Message (MSG)

6-9 “This is the kind of fast day I’m after:
    to break the chains of injustice,
    get rid of exploitation in the workplace,
    free the oppressed,
    cancel debts.
What I’m interested in seeing you do is:
    sharing your food with the hungry,
    inviting the homeless poor into your homes,
    putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad,
    being available to your own families.
Do this and the lights will turn on,
    and your lives will turn around at once.
Your righteousness will pave your way.
    The God of glory will secure your passage.
Then when you pray,God will answer.
    You’ll call out for help and I’ll say, ‘Here I am.’

A Full Life in the Emptiest of Places

9-12 “If you get rid of unfair practices,
    quit blaming victims,
    quit gossiping about other people’s sins,
If you are generous with the hungry
    and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out,
Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness,
    your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight.
I will always show you where to go.
    I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places—
    firm muscles, strong bones.
You’ll be like a well-watered garden,
    a gurgling spring that never runs dry.
You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew,
    rebuild the foundations from out of your past.
You’ll be known as those who can fix anything,
    restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate,
    make the community livable again.

Isaiah 58:6-12King James Version (KJV)

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lordshall be thy reward.

Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:
