This past Monday , 8-4-08 , we along the Texas Gulf Coast were treated to Tropical Storm Eduardo. No big deal ( six inches of rain in 24 hrs. and 65 mph wind gusts) but it made me think. Does God allow weather conditions , or does he send them ? Well, read Job 37:9-13 and you be the Judge ! Does God really control weather ?
Job 37: 9-13 ( NASB )
9- Out of the south comes the storm, and out of the north the cold 10- From the breath of God ice is made, and the expanse of the waters is frozen. 11- Also with moisture He loads the thick cloud, He disperses the cloud of His lightning, 12- It changes direction, turning around by His guidance, that it may do whatever he commands it On the face of the inhabited earth. 13- Whether for correction or for His world, Or for loving kindness, He causes it to happen.
We are of tempted to believe that weather events are transpiring outside the realm of Almighty God, and His ” sovereignty ” consists of allowing or preventing these occurances. Such is not the case. God is in control and sends weather in our direction as He pleases.There is not one rebellious molecule in this universe outside the Rule of Almighty God.
