On the news recently was the story of a great sandstorm blowing over Arizona in the US and the city of Phoenix was put under warning. A TV camera in a helicopter high above showed an immense wall of dust and sand rolling across the Phoenix valley smothering everything. It reduced road visibility to just 30 metres. A choking blinding blanket. That’s like the sinful spiritual sandstorm that blinds us to God’s truth and power. It affects us all!
