“He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters;
he makes the clouds his chariot;
he rides on the wings of the wind.”
Psalm 104:3 English Standard Version
Summer thunderstorms are common in Colorado whether a person lives in the mountains or on the eastern high plains, yet the character of these storms is not the same. Those storms that rise on the plains tend to be more violent.
The psalmist was not afraid to see God in the majesty of his creation, a skill that I’m afraid we’re losing. We tend to look at clouds from a purely scientific point of view.
God desires that we see him in the clouds.
Yes, there are laws that govern nature; laws that God himself established, but it is this Creator God who “rides the wings of the wind.” It is this Creator God who “makes the clouds his chariot.” It is this Creator God whose household beams are laid on the waters of the sky.
The psalmist could see God in the sky; the God who rides over the struggles of life. He is this victorious warrior God who has defeated sin, death and the devil.
I pray that when you look at the clouds, they speak to you of the God who has revealed himself to you in his Word; a God who is greater than your enemies.
