My heart pounds as I think of this. It trembles within me. Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice as it rolls from his mouth. It rolls across the heavens, and his lightning flashes in every direction. Then comes the roaring of the thunder— the tremendous voice of his majesty. He does not restrain it when he speaks. God’s voice is glorious in the thunder. We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power. He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down. Then everyone stops working so they can watch his power. The wild animals take cover and stay inside their dens. The stormy wind comes from its chamber, and the driving winds bring the cold. God’s breath sends the ice, freezing wide expanses of water. Job 37:1-10 NLT
Sometimes I like to stop and watch the weather. At times it’s pretty cool to watch, other times a bit scary. A lot depends on what’s happening, and where I am. Until I looked at this Scripture recently, I didn’t know it was actually written in His Word that men would stop and watch His power.
I’m glad I’m not in charge. If I had that kind of power, I’m sure I’d have wrecked things a long time ago. Best for me to just stop and watch and be in awe of what He alone can do.
In the C.S. Lewis’sThe Chronicles of Narnia, Susan asks Mr. Beaver if Aslan the Lion is safe.
“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver …“Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”
Hope you get to see some of God’s awesome handiwork in nature soon.
From a safe place.
Not sure how to be in that safe place? See Got God?
Have a great day.
