and cover yourself with a flood of water?
35 Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?
Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?
36 Who gives the ibis wisdom
or gives the rooster understanding?
Who can tip over the water jars of the heavens
38 when the dust becomes hard
and the clods of earth stick together? Job 38:34-38
One day I had the Cloud Book and went outside with the kids. “Let’s study the clouds today,” I said. But we looked up and not a single cloud in the sky.
Weather can be unpredictable. But actually clouds help to predict the weather. God alone controls the weather, but we can make predictions. Where do lightening bolts come from? They occur in cumulonimbus clouds – in the tall clouds. The taller the clouds, the more the electric charge. Even though we can explain weather with science, it is God who controls the weather and sends rain or withholds.
In the passage above, God is speaking to Job, reminding him, through questions, that man does not command the weather, but He does.
