Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
The bible tells us in the book of Job that Gods voice can sound like thunder! How awesome is that! Whenever there is a thunder storm I am quickly reminded of that verse and comforted in it's meaning. God is not destructive with His power, He is AWESOME and CREATIVE! We oftentimes stereo-type things by hear say or ignorance. I don't believe God created thunder and lightening to be destructive. God is a good God. God is Love! He is a protector not a violator. Everything God made in the Genesis account was said of God to be good. There is a Heavenlyy beauty in seeing lightening and hearing thunder. It is not a frightening sound but rather a sound of dominion. When the bible describes Gods voice sounding like thunder, to me it denotes ruler ship and authority over all. I think the sound of thunder is majestic and glorious. As a matter of fact I enjoy watch thunder storms from a nice big picture window.............it is so cool. When I was a little girl I use to lay out on the front porch with my eyes facing the sky and daydream and imagine the clouds to be different animal. This was a very peaceful pass time for me, I truly enjoyed it.
So the next time you hear the thunder roar, stop and reflect on its sound and Praise God for His wondrous works among the children of men!
