The Weather – Day 26

Job 37:5-7

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.”

So that everyone He has made may know His work, He fills all people with fear by His power.

The Thought

This whole chapter of Job is an appreciation of God’s design of weather on the earth. But sadly I ask myself if the last phrase is true in our day. Everyone no longer knows His work, and because so many people don’t recognise the creator, they are not amazed by His power! How sad.

How many of us praise the Lord for one sort of weather, but are disappointed or even angry with Him when we get a different sort?

In this modern era, we have science that was not known in Job’s time, and our scientists are constantly looking for the way things happen and sadly in many “natural” things such as weather they have ignored God.

Sometimes unusual things happen in the weather patterns and there are freak conditions. But who turns to God to ask why? Maybe some blame Him for what is not “normal”. But how often do we give Him glory and praise for the weather? Are there too many things in life that many of us take for granted?


Spend some time today thinking about, and praising God for “normal things,” the weather patterns you expect, the “normal” behaviour of people around you, the mundane things so often taken for granted.

Read this chapter of Job 37 and be blessed by the descriptions there.

Ask God to open your eyes to see the wonders He has created for your enjoyment.

Remember that Paul reminded Timothy that God has richly provided us with everything for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17).
