Master Of The Wind

But They That Wait...

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." -Isaiah 40:31

There is something truly amazing about an Eagle. I find them so mysterious that I cannot take my eyes off of them. Just the way they float along surveying so carefully the grounds below. One thing I've come to learn about eagles and find just so extraordinarily amazing is how they approach storms. When a storm approaches, the eagle unlike any other bird, will not try to escape it. They find a spot high up, wait for the storm to arrive, and then they simply let the winds push under their wings, and exalt them up higher. They soar above the storms, and wait for them to pass. The storm is what pushes them up higher. How beautiful is this? God uses Eagles in His word to paint a picture for us.

It teaches us to not allow storms to take us down, but expect God to help us rise above them, and He will lift us up above the storm. He created nature in such a way, that it speaks to us. No scientist could ever explain this. The bible says that the LORD is the master of the wind. The song says, and the maker of the rain. He can calm storms, let the SON shine again. I know the master of the wind.

We all have to endure the storms of life, but we don’t have to go through them alone. (Luke 8:22-25) Speaks of faith and how God was master of the storms. There is a light beyond every cloud, and every storm. The Israelites lived under a cloud. God is everywhere, but he remained in a cloud and guided the Israelites. They were too blind to see Him at times, because they were looking with their eyes. Moses walked into the cloud, and he found God, and spoke with God. God was in the clouds, and on the mountain. (Exodus 24:12-18)

What an experience we can have with God! Noah and the Ark is another great story, showing God's faithfulness in a storm. Every time I see a rainbow I get so excited because of how the bible portrays it. It's a beautiful sign from God of His promise to His people. God can speak to us through nature. (Genesis 9:8-17)

God clearly used storms to teach us something, so the next time it rains, we can rejoice in the fact that we know the maker of the rain, and that we have a promise of a brighter day.

Hello, Dear Dancer,

(Love that title!)

This hub defies modern adjectives. The artwork is superb. So is the writing. Voted UP and all the way. This was ironic because our Bible Study teacher used Isaiah 40:31 (my favorite verse besides John 3:16) Sunday morning. Thanks for the warm reminder.

Kenneth
