Our God is the God of the Weather

It's hot here like it is in most of the US.   One day a couple of weeks ago the sky became very dark and cloudy and there was this "promise" of rain.  My neighbor was running outside to photograph something with her IPhone, so being the curious neighbor I am, I ran outside to look also.   Then I ran in and got my WONDERFUL  camera.  Here is what the sky looked like. 

Can you see the thread of purple in the center? 

There are so many verses that talk about God and storms.  Some,such as  this one,  talk about his second coming as a storm.

And the LORD will cause his majestic voice to be heard and the descending blow of his arm to be seen, in furious anger and a flame of devouring fire, with a cloudburst and storm and hailstones.  Is 30:30

Behold the storm of the LORD! Wrath has gone forth, a whirling tempest; it will burst upon the head of the wicked. Jer 30:23

Here the Bible tells us he is the creator of storms and brings the rains.

Ask rain from the LORD in the season of the spring rain, from the LORD who makes the storm clouds, and he will give them showers of rain, to everyone the vegetation in the field.  Zec 10:1

He also has power over the storm, to calm it and cause it to cease.

He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Ps 107:29

I am so thankful that the God of the weather, who creates the details in a storm, and decides when and how it is going to come,  also created me, with even greater detail, and decided I am to be one of His children.  Now if only I would obey Him as the storm does. 

thanks for reading,


Others speak of God being the creator of the storm.
