As Hurricane Irma dies down, many are relieved that the monumental storm was not as destructive as many feared. There is no doubt that it has wrecked many properties and businesses, and caused severe flooding. But for a storm which was billed as one of the most powerful in history, it could have been much worse for Florida. So, was the Lord at work? This group of faithful believers took to the beaches of Miami before the hurricane struck to declare God's praise and worship in the face of the impending hurricane.
The Washington Post says that "several twists of fortune eased the pain the storm inflicted on the state," but could it have been the hand of God? One significant event was Irma’s interaction with land before it made it to the US, demoting it from a category 5 to a category 3 storm, lessening its impact.
Then the direction of the storm shifted, causing it to miss Florida's vulnerable Key West. This was a crucial direction change that likely saved many lives and properties. So, perhaps this footage of faithful Christians worshipping their hearts out on a Miami beach before the Hurricane struck is more significant than we originally thought.
"Hallelujah, holy, holy
God almighty, the great I am
Who is worthy, none beside thee
God almighty, the great I am" the group sang.
"The mountains shake before you the demons run in fear
At the mention of the name king of majesty
There is no power in hell
Or any who can stand
Before the power and the presence of the
Praise God that the storm was not as bad as many feared!
