Understanding Storms

Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing,

Matthew 6:28 (NLT)

Bang! Crash!

“What was that?” asked a young mother as she pushed her grocery cart down an aisle in the Shawnee Wal-Mart during the summer of 2011.

“I know! I know!” said her five year old daughter. “That’s God telling everybody it’s gonna rain, mommy. We’ve prayed for rain in Sunday school every time. The teacher said because when we prayed to God, He will answer them.”

Within a matter of minutes loud sounds of what appeared to be rain drops hammered the metal roof. The rain signaled the end of the sixty-two consecutive days of 100 degree heat and no rain in Oklahoma—the longest since the late 1920’s.

As shoppers left the store to put their purchases in their vehicles, no one, it seemed, hurried to get out of the rain. The warm liquid from the sky seemed to renew everything in the area. Continuing for more than an hour, it seemed that God showed life on earth His ability to meet the needs of all His creation in due time.

Whether people recognize it or not, God uses such events as rainstorms to deepen His relationship with humankind and the earth. There is no clear example clear example of such faith, trust and hope than in little child’s response to thunder.

Perhaps the next time dark clouds and a rainy day enter your life, know that God is not trying to ruin your life with rain and stormy weather. Maybe God is using a storm and the subsequent rain to signal that He is about to answer the prayers that you thought had gone unanswered for years or more right now.


Prayer: Almighty God, shower humanity and all of nature with Your grace and unconditional
love.
