God Controls The Weather

“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;”
Luke 21:25 (NKJV)

During times of severe weather I thought it worthwhile to note some interesting points about our great God who is Sovereign, using an acrostic of GOD CONTROLS THE WEATHER:

G – od  the Creator is eternal (Deuteronomy 32:40).
O – mnipotent (Revelation 19:6).
D – eliverer (Psalm 18:2)

C – hrist Jesus is God and the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16).
O – mnipresent, He fills heaven and earth (Jeremiah 23:24).
N – azareth, where the  righteous Branch grew up (Isaiah 11:1 & Matthew 2:23).
T – remble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord (Psalm 114:7).
R – ighteousness is one of His characteristics (Jeremiah 12:1).
O – mega and Alpha, the Aleph and the Tau (Revelation 1:11).
L – ove, perfect, all human love transcending (1 John 4:8).
S – aviour is but one of His names but vital for us. (Isaiah 43:11).

T – rustworthy and faithful (Deuteronomy 31:6 & Lamentations 3:22-23).
H – oly, holy ,holy is the LORD of Hosts (Isaiah 6:3).
E – ver merciful (Psalm 136).

W – ord ( Logos ) is one of Our Saviour’s names (John 1:1 & 14).
E – xcellent is His name in all the earth. (Psalm 8:1).
A – ll things are upheld by the word of Jesus’power (Hebrews 1:3).
T – hunders marvellously with His voice (Job 37:5).
H – eavens, where Our God currently resides (Psalm 115:3).
E – lements are subject to Him.( Psalm 107:23-30, Matthew 8:23-27).
R – edeemer is another name of Christ Jesus, again, vital for us(Isaiah 44:24, Revelation 5:9).

Almighty God , Heavenly Father, we stand in awe of You. Please grant us Your perspective concerning disturbed weather over which You, as always, have sovereignty. We ask for Your mercy on the people of those areas experiencing severe weather. In Jesus name we pray.
