God's Mighty Hand!

There's something about praying on your knees.
This past week, I've heard some bad things happen. They happen all the time... right?!
Yesterday, I heard about a tornado in Oklahoma. I don't know all the details, but as I was listening to the radio, some verses came to mind in Job chapter 38:22-41, and 36:26-33.

"Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of distress, for the day of war and battle? Where is the way that the light is divided, or the east wind scattered on the earth? Who has cleft a channel for the flood, or a way for the thunderbolt, to bring rain on a land without people, on a desert without a man in it, to satisfy the waste and desolate land and to make the seeds of grass to sprout? Has the rain a father? or who has begotten the drops of dew? From whose womb has come the ice? and the frost of heaven, who has given it birth? Water becomes hard like stone, and the surface of the deep is imprisoned... Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, so that an abundance of water will cover you? Can you send forth lightnings that they may go and say to you, 'Here we are'?...

Job 36:26-30, "Behold, God is exalted, and we do not know Him; the number of His years is unsearchable. For He draws up the drops of water, they distill rain from the mist, which the clouds pour down, they drip upon man abundantly. Can anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, the thundering of His pavilion? Behold, He spreads His lightning about Him, and He covers the depths of the sea. For by these He judges peoples; He gives food in abundance. He covers His hands with the lightning, and commands it to strike the mark...."

These are just a couple verses out of the Bible that talk about God's awesome weather patterns! I couldn't help but think of these verses when I heard about the tornado. One other one comes to mind in Jeremiah 10:13,"When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, and brings out the wind from His storehouse."
