I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from which cometh my help. (Psalm 121:1) What do I see there? At times I see lightening as a hint of the intensity of the only omnipotent God. Neither tsunamis, nor earthquakes, nor hurricanes, nor tornadoes can demonstrate the fullness of His potential. In such phenomena, God, preeminent and eternal, is merely glancing over the horizontal veil of clouds to behold that creation which He so sovereignly saturates and permeates with the awesomeness of His majesty and perfection. God is that infinite continuum of possibility; making “His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sending rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthew 5:45)

God has said, “My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.” (Deuteronomy 32:2, 3)

Now that we have been saved from the sin of unbelief and believed on the Word that became flesh and dwelled among us (John 1:14), let us praise Jesus even in the midst of the most violent storms. We will have to cry sometimes, that is a given. Yet, God is our sure anchor and He never slumbers nor sleeps. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” (Psalm 20:7) We have the PROMISES of the One who cannot lie. He sanctifies us by the truth of His trustworthy Word (John 17:17) which even makes the simple-minded wise. (Psalm 19:7) Faith cometh by hearing, therefore, be careful who you listen to (Romans 10:17)…
“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Hebrews 13:20, 21)
