6 In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.
7 The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains
shook; they trembled because he was angry.
8 Smoke rose from his nostrils;
consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.
9 He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet.
10 He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him—
the dark rain clouds of the sky.
12 Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced,
with hailstones and bolts of lightning.
13 The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.
14 He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy,
with great bolts of lightning he routed them.
15 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth
laid bare at your rebuke, LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils.
1. These few verses gave a wonderful picture of storm; it’s a vivid description
of God working to help his people. Our creator God uses
all happenings in nature to serve his people.
2. Today, go outside and feel the wind, watch the cloud. Just imagine
God being in the wind and the cloud. Continue going with God
as he “soars on the wings of the wind”, and from the thick clouds,
watching him sends down blessed rain.
3. How do you feel on this imaginative trip with God? Talk to God
about it. And listen to his chuckling and response to you.
Prayer & Journaling:
Stay with God for a little longer. Continue to converse with God and listen
to what he wants to tell me. Then write down any thought and/or prayer
in the 2012 “Spiritual Journal” book.
