The wind is howling this morning and empty tree branches are snuggling up against the house to stay warm. The sound of wind can be peaceful or it can carry fear within its wings.
Meteorologists can predict weather, but they haven’t found a way to hold it back or contain it. When God sends different forms of weather to us, it might be a wake-up call for us to remember He’s in charge. We don’t have the benefit of having God speak to us directly like He did to Moses and the Prophets, but we do have the sound of His voice and His very words in the Holy Bible which He inspired.
Those words are His, and like the wind, they were whispered into the minds of those who penned them from God alone. He is in our lives even though we can’t see Him. In the book of Job, chapter 26 the suffering man Job speaks about the way God appears in nature and the power He controls, summing it all up in verse 14,
“Behold, these are but the outskirts of His ways, and how small a whisper do we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power who can understand?”
Listen for the voice of God. It’s in the trees, in nature, in every day and night. It’s alive in His Holy Word, the Bible.
