Clouds speak of His power:
Do you know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of Him who is perfect in knowledge .. (Job 37:16).
As the East coast is still in the midst of a hurricane like storm, Nahum’s words are somewhat comforting:
The Lord is slow to anger but great in power; the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished.
His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of His feet (Nahum 1:3).
I say somewhat comforting because we can trust in His sovereignty that He has a plan for this storm’s rage, which He allows.
For those who hope in Him … no matter how the physical weather destroys or how tornadoes tear through our hearts, we are in Him, He is in us.
We are safe no matter what (Psalm 27:1).
His clouds cover us. His clouds protect us:
As Moses led His people out of slavery, as we turn from our old ways and set our feet on the narrow path …
By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people (Exodus 13:21-22).
W hat direction are you headed in? Are you making choices to seek Him and be in His will?
As a dear sister in Christ, Miss Carolyn, prayed for me this past week, she shared that God showed her a cloud. “He is with you, He is before you,” she said.
What Miss Carolyn did not know is a few days earlier clouds were the subject of my devotional.
Glory to God in the highest! How He works among us to reassure and draw us near!
How do His clouds speak to you?
I pray this moment you know the Hope we have in Jesus, the hope we are never alone, the hope we are forgiven for all things, the hope of eternity with Him, for He is coming soon.
“But in those days, following that distress, ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
“At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And He will send His angels and gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens” (Mark 13:24-27).
He is with us until the end of the age.
How may I pray for you?
