Dr. Johnson's Devotionals From The Word Of God- 8

Indonesia has over 130 active volcanoes, more than any other country on earth. Towering 1,200ft above the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, one of the most terrifying volcanoes the world has ever known- the Krakatoa began to stir once more last year. With an explosive force more than 13,000 times the power of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa killed more than 36,000 people and severely changed global weather for years afterwards. The enormous tsunami it generated, destroyed 165 villages and towns. Scientists believe that if Krakatoa were to erupt again, the impact would be far more devastating than that which was experienced in the 19th century. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed if there were another massive eruption.

Is there anyone human or robotic who can control this time bomb? After all the wonderful inventions and discoveries, man comes to a point wherein he is helpless if he chooses to go ahead on his own strength.

If there is anyone who can control this potential devastator, it's the Creator himself and he is in control of all things seen and unseen. He says,
Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:23, 24)

God is in control of every situation in the life of the one who has fear of the Lord.
The Bible says,
The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble. (Proverbs 19:23)
