I am reminded of a story about an individual who was told through a police officers bullhorn, as the officer drove through the neighborhood, that a flood was coming. The individual said to the officer that there was nothing to worry about as God would save him from the flood.
As the floodwater began to come up to the foundation of the house, a rescue boat motored up and the rescue crew in the boat said we are here to take you to safety. The individual said not to worry God would save him.
A few hours later, the individual was on the roof of the house as the flood was up to the top of the house. A helicopter flew near, and the rescue team said we will lower down a basket. The individual proclaimed all was well and that God would save him.
