Bible Reading: 2 Kings 2:1-11
Saturday, July 4, 2015

TornadoesIf you live in Iowa, in the summer you will experience many nice things. But one bad thing can happen in Iowa — a tornado! Many people have witnessed the terrible destruction of tornadoes and strong winds. Tornadoes show us God’s great power.

In our Bible verses, we read about God’s prophet, Elijah. He loved God and served Him for many years. Then God did something special for Elijah. Elijah did not have to die. Instead God took Him to heaven. Verse 11 says, “Elijah and Elisha were walking and talking together. Suddenly, some horses and a chariot came and separated Elijah from Elisha...Then Elijah was carried up into heaven in a whirlwind.” This whirlwind may have been something like a tornado. God showed His great power when He made the whirlwind and took Elijah to heaven.

God is powerful, and we can depend on Him to control the universe. If God can make the world and take care of it, He can take care of you, too. Thank Him today for His amazing power! — JK

“Tell everyone how powerful he is! He rules over Israel. His power fills the skies.” Psalm 68:34

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank You for taking care of me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
