And the LORD changed the wind to a very strong west wind, which caught up the locusts and carried them into the Red Sea. Not a locust was left anywhere in Egypt. NIV
“And the Lord changed the wind!”
This passage speaks to me. I have a Heavenly Father that knows what the “locusts” have eaten away. He knows and sees what the consequences and storms have damaged. He knows me and sees my enemies, the things threatening me. He brings the wind!
“And not a locust was left”
It’s a promise and a reminder that HE has got this!
I woke up to the wind howling all night. I tossed and turned listening to the trees strain. A strong northwest wind making hurricane like conditions is bringing havoc to the eastern United States. Yet when I woke and the winds still howled the sun is shining so bright! A cold strong wind blows.
I reread the words God has brought me! “A strong west wind … and not a locust was left”
Hear me now! Man might mean harm but I am a child of the living God who’s breath and touch and hand can move mountains, divide seas, scatter locusts and my enemies! My family stands under that umbrella of protection ! The wind might threaten to twist and bend and break but NO!
Today I say BLOW wind BLOWWWWWW
Lord You take all that is wrong and rising against and make it right! ON you IN you I will stand my ground! My hope our hope is in You!
O Lord plays on the radio and today the Nwest wind blows!
Locusts – YOU don’t stand a chance against My God!
In Palestine the west wind is the most common. It comes from the sea and carries the moisture which condenses to form clouds, as it is turned upward by the mountains, to the cooler layers of the atmosphere. If the temperature reached is cool enough the cloud condenses and rain falls. Elijah looked toward the West for the “small cloud,” and soon “the heavens grew black with clouds and wind” (1 Kings 18:44). “When ye see a cloud rising in the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it cometh to pass” (Luke 12:54).
4. North Wind:
The north wind is usually a strong, continuous wind blowing down from the northern hills, and while it is cool it always “drives away rain,” as correctly stated in Proverbs 25:23, the King James Version; yet it is a disagreeable wind, and often causes headache and fever.
