“We live in a great area. Why worry?
Tornadoes? They’re around, but the ones to worry about are more on the plains. We’ve only had a small one that was fairly close. No big deal.
Earthquakes? We’ve lived here for twenty years and not even a rumble.
Hurricanes or Tsunamis? Not even close.
Fires? That’s a possibility, but slim. We live in a residential area. The widespread fires we’ve had in our state have been in open areas or in one of the forests, not populated areas.
Floods? I seriously doubt it even though we’ve had some pretty serious ones in our state.
Ice Storms? Again possible, but unlikely. As long as we’re home and our electricity stays on and we have enough food, and… we’ll be alright. Okay maybe this one could be a problem, especially if we’re away from home. In the winter, blizzards can come up so quickly or more intense than estimated by meteorologists. If I didn’t have a bug-out bag in my car, I would worry more. At least, it’s a start. Right?”
We think we’re immune from anything bad happening to us. We believe it only happens to other people, not us. What a false sense of security! You could be dead wrong!
Last year, we had a fire break out in a forest area in our state where beautiful homes lined the landscape. It happened while many people were at work and was so intense that many lost everything. Unless they were at home and heeded the warnings to grab what they could and evacuate, or had a Plan B, the outcome was hopeless.
Matthew 24:7b-8 NKJV says, “And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
In other words, natural disasters will show up in places they have never been before AND will come with much greater frequency. Guess what? It’s happening now and will only get worse!
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Get ready now!
Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can begin TODAY!
Then, commit to doing something every day.
