“You stretch out the north over empty space and hang the earth on nothing… “What is man, that you are mindful of him?”
The picture with the comment above was on Face Book.
The arrogance of a man who thinks he can out think God. I am sure God would say to us, the same thing he said to Job (Chap 38).
9 when I made the clouds its garment
and wrapped it in thick darkness,
10 when I fixed limits for it
and set its doors and bars in place,
11 when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
here is where your proud waves halt’?
We think we can stop the ocean waters from raising a couple inches? God ordains where those ocean waters flow and how high they flow. He knows all about the melting of the ice and he know how to send the cold as well as the heat! We will not stop him from acting in accordance with the natural laws he has set up.
He set the natural laws in motion and he gave man the duty to maintain it! We are to treat our earth as a precious resource for the good of mankind. That’s what he said to do.
I used hair spray today and sent Him in a frenzy? No way, but he probably does care what I do with the can. So I bury my empty spray can and till over it with good seed; or in some manner, perhaps it can be recycled. If I throw it out the car window, I have not pleased Him. Enough people do enough of that and we suffer the consequences!
There is one way that people can affect the weather patterns, that is by prayer! It happened at least three times in Old Testament times: Moon standing still, Sun dial goes back for Hezekiah; No rain for three years for Elijah.
So I’m ending with a Thank you, Jesus, for the good rain we had yesterday. And a prayer for recovery from the Florida hurricane. Deal in mercy for the people harmed, show comfort to hurting people. We are amazed at how disasters sometimes cause bonding in love to be demonstrated. You are good and you bring good for those who love you.
“The open heart hears the Lord speaking to us in the Spirit in any circumstance. The closed heart wonders why God never speaks to us.” c.a.post
Thinking about your blog reminds me of King Canute ordering the tide to stop rising. He should have used Congress’s idea about how to get up earlier in the morning by moving the clock. If he had just “adjusted where” the high tide mark was, he could have declared himself master of the tides! 😂
