Gratitude not grATTITUDE! Day 10


Job 37: 5-6 TLA: Cuando Dios deja oír sus truenos, suceden cosas maravillosas que no alcanzamos a comprender. Dios les ordena a la nieve y a la lluvia que caigan sobre la tierra y demuestren su poder.

“Truenos y relalmpagos! La naturaleza habla del poder de nuestro Dios. Cuando crecia me decian que Dios me iba a matar con relampagos. Recuerdo un día tenebroso, un ruino tremendo y luego un relampago … todos los fusibles de la luz explotaron, la ropa en el cordel se quemo… salí corriendo, huyendo de aquello tan horrible…. Pero estaba viva, ese dia el temor y terror se apoderaron de mi. Cuando escucho un trueno, sé que viene un relampago y me escondo, si aun de adulta me escondo de miedo, de terror y panico porque pienso en mi interior “que Dios me va a matar”. Sin embargo al leer esta palabra esta mañana descubro que “cuando Dios deja oír sus truenos, suceden cosas maravillosas” ALELUYA! Dios nos habla, nos disciplina, nos muestra su gracia o su amor extravagante! Gracias amado por tu AMOR que suena como truenos y relampagos!”

MSG: “Whenever this happens, my heart stops— I’m stunned, I can’t catch my breath. Listen to it! Listen to his thunder, the rolling, rumbling thunder of his voice. He lets loose his lightning from horizon to horizon, lightning p the earth from pole to pole. In their wake, the thunder echoes his voice, powerful and majestic. He lets out all the stops, he holds nothing back. No one can mistake that voice— His word thundering so wondrously, his mighty acts staggering our understanding. He orders the snow, ‘Blanket the earth!’ and the rain, ‘Soak the whole countryside!’ No one can escape the weather—it’s there. And no one can escape from God. Wild animals take shelter, crawling into their dens, when blizzards roar out of the north and freezing rain crusts the land. It’s God’s breath that forms the ice it’s God’s breath that turns lakes and rivers solid. And yes, it’s God who fills clouds with rainwater and hurls lightning from them every which way. He puts them through their paces—first this way, then that— commands them to do what he says all over the world. Whether for discipline or grace or extravagant love, he makes sure they make their mark.

“Thunders and lightning! Natures talk to us about God’s power. When I was growing up I was told that God would kill me with lightning. I remember a dark day, full of noise and then lightning…every light in our house exploded, the clothes drying in the line burned… I run, escaping that horrible moment.. But I was alive, that day fear and terror became my friends. Even today as an adult, every time I hear thunder I know lightning will follow and I hide because of fear, terror and panic, thinking deep inside of me “God is going to kill me”. This morning as I read this word I discovered that “when God allows us to hear thunder and see lightning, powerful things happen” ALELUYAH! God is talking to us, he disciplines us, he shows us his grace or his extravagant love! Thank You Beloved for your love, love that sounds like thunders and lightning!
