(St. Louis, Mo.) Joyce Meyer Ministries’ Hand of Hope is partnering with emergency relief organizations Convoy of Hope and Service International, bringing food, water, emergency supplies, equipment and volunteers to assist families and remove debris from flood damaged areas. The need is vast in the wake of recent epic flooding throughout the St. Louis area, hundreds were evacuated as more than ten inches of rain fell over a three-day period elevating the Mississippi, Missouri and Meramec rivers well above flood stage.
“This is our hometown and there are hundreds in need of assistance,” says David Meyer, CEO of Hand of Hope. “No matter where disasters happen, either around the world or here locally, we are committed to help the hurting in their greatest time of need. Therefore we have partnered with two outstanding emergency response organizations to offer immediate relief.”

We do not need to strive for power or hope to have power someday; we have power now! The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us (see Rom. 8:11) and we can be quickened (filled with life) by that power. This is not a onetime filling that slowly drains out of us as the days go by, but we can be filled day by day and even moment by moment. We can constantly and continually experience God’s presence and power in our lives. When we belong to Him, there is never a time when His power is not accessible to us.
