I have always loved thunderstorms, they are a display of God’s incredibly awesome power, and also the intensity of His voice. His power does not scare me, nor does His anger. I see it as part of His love. You see when you are the predator of the baby cubs, the momma bear becomes your enemy, but when you are one of her cubs she becomes your protector. She will give her life to protect you. God Almighty is my protector. And His Son my Savior who paid the price so that I can be close to Him.
This is from a newsletter I get daily and summed up the power of a storm so well, I wanted to share.
On the morning of the third day there was an awesome thunder and lightning storm, and a huge cloud came down upon the mountain. Mt. Sinai was completely covered with smoke because Jehovah descended upon it in the form of fire. The whole mountain shook with a violent earthquake and as the trumpet blast grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and God spoke his reply with a forceful voice (see Exodus 19:9-19).
God thundered to Moses and his chosen people: “Ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation…” (Exodus 19:6).
