For Christians, God is our hiding place, our fortress and whenever we are afraid, we can run to Him and take refuge.
That’s what a family did to survive a deadly tornado which tore through parts of Alabama in 2019 after their entire house was destroyed in the storm, but nothing happened to them because they took shelter in their grandmother’s prayer closet.
It was the only part of the house which was not demolished.
Sadly, 22 people died when the tornado hit the community. But, this family was not hurt, an image of the grandma’s prayer closet was shared on Facebook by Jason Smith, a member of the response team in the community.
“Listen to me please. I just left a family who survived the tornado in this house and the only left standing is this closet. It’s the grandmother’s prayer closet, and the whole family survived,” explains Jason. “Are you kiddin me!!! My God is awesome!!! Shout somebody!”
Listen to me please. I just left a family who survived the tornado in this house and the only left standing is this…
Isaiah 4:6 It will be a shelter from daytime heat and a hiding place from storms and rain.
