Stop and consider God’s wonders. Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge? You who swelter in your clothes when the land lies hushed under the south wind, can you join him in spreading out the skies….? Job 37:14-18
Man has traveled to the moon, moves the soil to make dams and lakes, makes roads across nations and travels hundreds of miles per hour in airplanes in the skies. But can man control the clouds? Can man make rain or spread out the skies? He has tried. There are limits to man’s control.
We made a trip out to see our farmland this week. We learned alfalfa roots can reach down to the aquifer during their 10-year productive life. Man wondered if our Ogallala aquifer in Nebraska or our Lake McConaughey would ever replenish after our drought? Some men said they never would. Within a few years the lake was filled. The rains came. God’s powers are not limited. This seemed like a miracle of Bible times to me.
Have you noticed the devotion you read often meets the need you are concerned about at the time you read it? How can God do that for all the people in the world at the same time? Yet, we find his faithfulness that exact when we pay attention. He says our prayers will be answered. It may be yes, or no, or wait, but he answers.
See how the kernels on the corn form and the moisture from the rain or the pivots in the field travels through the soil to give moisture to the kernels. God has no limits.
Prayer: Dear Father in Heaven, help us stop and consider your wonders. Thank you for your consistent controls of growing plants for the farmers. You control the sky, the seasons and the years. Your creation is awesome. Even during a pandemic the crops grow. Amen.
