Caught In Hail Storm

#1

Post by Blessed » Wed Mar 21, 2018 2:14 am

I was driving in Daytona Beach today during a rainstorm and marble sized hail started pelting my car (and everyone else's). I started freaking out thinking it would get worse and my adored car (that I'm spending thousands upgrading right now) would get destroyed.

I cut across the intersection trying to find a place to cover and could not find anything but decided to park to reduce the impacts so I pulled up to an Antique shop and their was a huge portrait of Jesus Christ in the window with a cross above it. As I stared at the portrait the hail subsided.

Could this mean anything? Like a message or something? Would could this omen mean?

Perhaps God sent the hail to remind you to think about Jesus and what he has done for you. This is always a good thing to do even if that wasn't the purpose of the hail.
God wants full custody of his children, not just visits on Sunday.

Sometimes God's creation naturally leads to God. Is that any wonder? I'm not so quick to jump on the It's-a-sign-from-God wagon, though you might not want to ignore this either way.

Well, as you obviously thought it MIGHT be a sign from God - did you first ask HIM about that - as opposed to strangers on a website? People want to hear from God - and He has said He craves relationship and communication with and us. And yet, most people want to see some miraculous sign, but they never approach God in response to what He's already shown He desires of us. We often act as if we will only communicate with God if He does so in a way that WE desire. Just saying.

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Why not? God always gives signs. God is always there with you regardless if you notice it or not.
