In Job Chapter 1, Satan stands before God and discusses the "blameless and upright" (verse 8) man named Job.  Satan suggests to the LORD, "put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face.”  Then the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him” (verses 11-12).  Notice that Satan mentions God's hand, and God mentions Satan's hand.  So, later in verse 19, when "a great wind came from across the wilderness" and killed Job's sons and daughters, whose hand stirred up the wind?  I'm not sure.

Closer to our day, in 1998, Hurricane Mitch struck Honduras and killed thousands.  At that time, Ken Cummins was serving as a missionary in Honduras and ministered in the aftermath of the natural disaster.  Once again, I ask the question, whose hand stirred up the wind, or in this case, the hurricane?  I'm not sure.  But, after listening to Ken's story on today's Footsteps, there is no doubt that God's hand was at work through Ken and his team after Hurricane Mitch hit.  That's why Ken exclaims, "I give God the absolute praise for what He did."
