Verse of the Day for TUESDAY, November 10, 2020


Job 37:5-6
God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend. For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.
Ancient people understood the awesome power of thunderstorms, and the association of lightning with the boom of thunder was an easy connection to make. They linked God’s power over nature—a regular theme in the book of Job—to God’s power in general, and they recognized that thunderstorms were evidence of God’s might (see Ps 29:7–9). Job would not have automatically assumed that thunder and lightning indicated that God was angry—only that he was majestic. God uses the random winter storms and the rain and snow to show man his weakness in the face of God's overwhelming power. Indeed, Christ taught this lesson to His disciples when he calmed the storm (Mt 8:23–27). “He has created man to be weak, and yet man thinks himself to be strong; and thereby he becomes even more feeble” (John Chrysostom).
