Above the Clouds

What a marvelous God we have! He loves us so much and He desires us to know Him so He can bless us. With all our heart we must seek to know this incredible God who reigns not just in some far away heaven, but right here with us every second of every day. He has given His very Word as a guide to know Him and to see His special messages to us:

Isaiah 55:8-13 (MSG)
8-11
“I don’t think the way you think.
 The way you work isn’t the way I work.”
 God’s Decree.
“For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work,
 and the way I think is beyond the way you think.


Just as rain and snow descend from the skies
 and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth,
 Doing their work of making things grow and blossom,
 producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry,
 So will the words that come out of my mouth
   not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do,
 they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.
12-13
“So you’ll go out in joy,
 you’ll be led into a whole and complete life.
 The mountains and hills will lead the parade,
 bursting with song.
 All the trees of the forest will join the procession,
   exuberant with applause.
 No more thistles, but giant sequoias,
   no more thornbushes, but stately pines—
Monuments to me, to God,
 living and lasting evidence of God.”

The whole earth praises our creator God! The mountains with their high cliff rugged protection and strength, the giant sequoias with their huge grandness, the stately pine forest covering portions of the earth, these all speak of His illustriousness and almighty love for us. The heavens above with the night sky’s diamond like stars and especially the light of a full moon teach us that as we face the dark places in life, God will be our guiding light through them, if we but ask.

Then the Lord sometimes brings in the day and puts it to sleep with a brilliant palette of reds, golds and orange color schemes. Even when it rains, if we look we will see a covering arc of beautiful rainbow colors. Lord, You blessed us with eyes to see Your lovely creation in the natural; and if we seek it, the ability to find a peace and joy as we see it with our spirit.

Journeys take us through good weather and challenging storms - days of peaceful blue cradling puffy clouds on high, to the threatening grey and black skies brought by powerful winds escorting in torrential rains, fearful

lightening bursts and crashing thunder. One important thing to remember is that in storms there is one constant: the sun still shines high above the clouds; yes, it is always there even when the grey black clouds block its light and warmth for a time. It’s like our God, when our passage through life takes us on the required difficult paths, God is always there, even if in our fear, discomfort, or hurts we forget how much He loves us and will take care of us. It is in learning to trust Him that we can see through the stormy skies to His faithful Son still offering loving warmth and light if we just look.

In the Isaiah 55 above we read God's explanation of Himself in that His ways of thinking are so totally different than ours, so we cannot always know exactly what He has in mind. But He promises that He stands behind His word and it never returns to Him void. So when we pray out His word, we know He will do what He says. Notice verse 12 in His Word says: “So you’ll go out in joy,
 you’ll be led into a whole and complete life.

Thank You Father! Trusting You with my life will bring me through every storm be it physical, mental, or spiritual. In the end I’ll have been led to live a whole and complete life. You are good!
