I awoke this morning to a loud clap of thunder. I went downstairs to pray before the rest of my family got up, and as I was praying, there was one majestic crash after another. I could physically feel each one--the windows of the house shook at the might of each thunderous crash.
Then comes the sound of his roar; he thunders with his majestic voice. When his voice resounds, he holds nothing back.
God's voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.
Do you have an arm like God's, and can your voice thunder like his?
The Lord will roar from on high; he will thunder from his holy dwelling and roar mightily against his land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live in the earth.
When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
Jeremiah 51: 16
Glory!!! If the earth-shaking power of a giant boom of thunder gives us even the smallest glimpse of His voice, then what a mighty God we serve. Can you imagine that He gives us--in the midst of the strongest storms--thunderous reminders of His power and majesty?
If that's the case, then bring on thunderstorm season! I love the reminders. And I mean, it's one thing to read in the Word of thunder that represents His voice. And it's another thing to feel it shake the very ground you're on.
