Just Look At That Lightning!

lightning strikes liberty

Do you have any idea how powerful God is?
   Have you ever heard of a teacher like him?
Has anyone ever had to tell him what to do,
   or correct him, saying, 'You did that all wrong!'?
Remember, then, to praise his workmanship,
   which is so often celebrated in song.
Everybody sees it; nobody is too far away to see it.

Take a long, hard look.

See how great he is—infinite, greater than anything you could ever imagine or figure out!
He pulls water up out of the sea,
   distils it, and fills up his rain-cloud cisterns.
Then the skies open up
   and pour out soaking showers on everyone.
Does anyone have the slightest idea how this happens?
   How he arranges the clouds, how he speaks in thunder?
Just look at that lightning, his sky-filling light-show
   illumining the dark depths of the sea!
These are the symbols of his sovereignty,
   his generosity, his loving care.

Job 36, from ‘the Message’
