Joel - Are You Sure You Want God to Show Up?

May 26, 2024    Neil Montgomery

Have you ever been watching a show that was engaging and you are enjoying it, only to have the music turn dark? Then you hear the low, steady voice of the narrator, "All was going great for the Jones family and then--DISASTER!"

This is how the book of Joel begins. God's people are enjoying a time of prosperity and economic abundance when--DISASTER! The story opens with an unprecedented locust invasion that devastates everything. 

Have you ever had something like that happen in your life? In a moment your world is turned upside down and you find yourself crying out to God. What is He up to in times like this? What has gone wrong? What do we do?
