There's just something about the sound of rain, isn't there? It started early this morning and is still going...hopefully all day long! I've got the back door open, just to listen to it. It's peaceful and calming.
I know that the Lord is great,
that our Lord is greater than all gods.
The Lord does whatever pleases him,
in the heavens and on the earth,
in the seas and all their depths.
He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth;
he sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
After several years of drought, we are thankful for the rains we've had. Praising God for the rain comes naturally, even to those who may not truly know Him.
Do any of the worthless idols of the nations bring rain?
Do the skies themselves send down showers?
No, it is you, Lord our God.
Therefore our hope is in you,
for you are the one who does all this.
Our praise to Him should not waver. He, alone, is God. No idol can bring rain. He IS the ONE who does all this. Let's never forget to give Him praise.
