Message of the Day: God Presides Over All, Regard Him with Reverence!

God thunders marvelously with His voice;
He does great things which we cannot comprehend.
For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’;
Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength
.” (Job 37:5-6, NKJV)

This is a continuation of Elihu’s hymnic description of God’s marvels exhibited in the earth’s atmosphere. Job had silenced the three friends. Elihu was angry at them because they falsely accused Job. And he was angry with Job because as the argument wore on, Job increasingly was intent on justifying himself rather than God. Now it was Elihu’s turn to continue his speech depicting God’s wisdom and power.

His heart pounds at the awesome display of God’s power and wisdom. The passage reveals a sophisticated observation of atmospheric conditions and their effects: the evaporation and distillation of water for rain, the clouds as holders of moisture, and the cyclonic behavior of clouds. Such forces originate from God’s command and always perform his will for mankind, whether for good or for ill.

God presides over all, riding on the storm and directing it as he pleases; the rain is under the command of God, and obeyed his will. These statements should teach every human being to regard God with reverence.
