Weather or Not

Safe haven, yes at one time weather and the earth’s episodes were a safe haven for conversation. But they are no longer a safe haven for me.

Just think about conversing about the weather, earthquakes and tsunamis. My neighbor believes that “mother nature is out of control”. The “weather is out of control”. Earthquakes just “will not cooperate” and should only happen occasionally at our convenience. Imagine, two earthquakes in a short period of time, one a 7.0 quake and the other 8.8 quake. Come on Mother Nature, get with it.

Turn on the TV and watch for the tsunami. Did you miss it? Rerun, rerun!!!

Then my TV station’s “Giver of all weather” the weather man. What weather will he give me tomorrow? What do you have there for the world? What shall you give, snow, rain, a severe clear, a rain dance? Can I put my order in for February 30th? I want a warm temperature with clouds. Good fishing weather.

Has God abdicated His omnipotence? What is that stuff “God’s omnipotence”?
“God approves and determines to bring about every action necessary for the existence and activity of Himself and all creation.”

(1 Kings 19:11-12 NIV) The LORD said, "Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by." Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.”

God has not abdicated. The problem still is we do not know Him!
