“At this also my heart trembles, And leaps from its place. Hear attentively the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that comes from His mouth. He sends it forth under the whole heaven, His lightning to the ends of the earth. After it His voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, And He does not restrain them when His voice is heard. God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend.” Job 37:1-5 NKJV
God is to be feared for His great works; His wisdom in them is unsearchable.
We have all seen the destructive power of “mother nature.” Too few behold natural events and see the power of Almighty God in them!
A tsunami can wash away everything in its path. God decrees how far the oceans stretch. An earthquake can shake us back to the Stone Age. God can shake the heavens. A volcano can spew fire and lava miles away. The Lord uses them to create new lands.
Elihu wanted Job to know God holds the reins of power. He wanted Job to know the Lord uses His power in ways people cannot comprehend. The ancients could not understand God’s use of His infinite power because His wisdom was infinitely higher than theirs.
Jesus wants us to know all the power of heaven and earth is His. He holds the universe together. He uses His infinite power in ways we cannot understand today. We cannot understand it because His wisdom is infinitely higher than ours could ever be!
God’s power is terrifying. If we could understand the enormity of His power it would terrify us. If we new the depth of God’s love we would never fear anyone or anything!
God could destroy His enemies in less time than it takes to comprehend the thought of it. He could eliminate all evil with a single thought. God tempers His power with mercy and longsuffering. The Lord dispenses justice with infinite wisdom!
God can speak with a still small voice or He can roar with the majesty of thunder!
Behold the power of Almighty God. See Him in the crashing waves of the great oceans. See Him in the rotation of the stars and planets. Find Jesus in the loving hearts of His little ones. Obey Jesus like a child and your heart will overflow with joy!
Keep an out for the tender move of God’s Spirit when you to pray for people. Watch for His mercy and grace when people born dead in trespasses and sins turn to Jesus!
When my heart is focused on the love of Jesus my eyes are not distracted by the lust of the flesh. When I set my eyes on fleshly desires they grow stronger and lead me away from Jesus. When I surrender to the pride of life I am separated from the vine of life!
Does God need to thunder through the heavens for you hear Him? Or can you hear the whispers of His love in the quiet of the night?
Stop, be still and listen. Jesus still speaks to people who listen in faith!
