God THUNDERETH marvellously with HIS voice...

" Hast thou an arm like GOD? OR canst thou thunder with a voice like HIM? Job 40:9

Last night, or more like the early morning hours, while lying in bed with some body pain  and not being able to sleep, I suddenly heard the beginning of a hailstorm. The hail came quickly with a loud noise pounding the roof.

The wind picked up and the hail was heard bouncing off the windows. Shortly thereafter, lightning lit the skies and loud peals of thunder was heard. The thunder at times was quite loud shaking the house with much force.

Then the heavy rain started to fall... and I was in deep amazement at the power of GOD. Who is like our GOD that can create such marvel?  

How can one not know that GOD reigns in the heavens?  

" God thundereth marvellously with HIS voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend.
For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth, likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of His strength. 
He sealeth up the hand of every man;that ALL men may know HIS work." 
Job 37:5-7

After breakfast, I immediately went to a favorite passage in Job where God's power is explained in such detail. I read a few verses and thought to sit a bit, look out the window, watch the rain... and put my thoughts in a poem.


Who but Thee knows the ordinances of heaven?
Thou hast laid the foundations of the earth,
And made the cloud as a garment for it.
With Thy voice You thunder and rain does come forth.
Who is like unto Thee, O Lord?
In whose hand lies all might and power.
Thou givest the earth due rain in its season,
And causeth the tender bud to bring forth its flower.
Thy wondrous works is perfect in knowledge.
Great things Thou doest, we cannot understand.
By your counsel the bright cloud is turned,
And cause it to come for mercy, correction, and even the land.
Thy voice is heard upon the many waters,
For the sea is Thine and Thy hands has formed the dry land.
You make the desolate ground to be continually satisfied,
And uphold all things by Your righteous right hand.
Who has an arm like our God and can save?
  We call unto Thee in trouble, for Thou dost surely hear.
From Thy secret place of thunder, Thy people you answer.
Yes, I will help you, for I'm with you and you shalt not fear.

May you praise the LORD on high today... for His mercy endureth forever.
