God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; He does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, ‘fall on the earth’; and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
- Job 37: 5-6
In April, it seems like the rain never stops; it spits at us on one hand and drenches us at other times.
We may have just celebrated Easter, but it’s like the earth is still in mourning, crying, remembering Christ’s suffering, and crucifixion.
As the thunderstorm rages and the wind whips about, I am reminded of the pain and agony Christ went through for me.
The more the wind whistles, tossing leaves and abandoned papers into the air like confetti on New Year’s Eve, I sense the fury that must have ensued when Christ gave up His Spirit for us and died.
The Bible tells us that God’s very voice thunders like a storm. Indeed, we would fall to our knees if we heard it.
It is marvelous, and nothing can compare to His almighty power. Sometimes when we go through loss or hardships, we forget that even though we may feel God is silent, He is not absent in our lives!
His love and concern for us are as ever-present as the wind we feel on our faces.
We can rest in the hope that just like Easter morning when the Son of God rose from the dead, we too shall see the sun breach the darkness of our trial.
Today, whatever questions, troubles, or hurdles you are navigating, remember that God calms the storm. Therefore, He can quiet the inner tornado within and restore you to solid ground.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for your sacrifice to save me. Thank you for overcoming every fear, struggle, or trial I may face through your death and resurrection. Please help me to continue to trust you. Amen.
