Hello Beloved Community
We invite you to join us for worship and to be a part of our family of faith. Speaking of faith… I was thinking about the first rain of the season and how our faith grows when we see the hand of God. In the book of Job, Job says these words, “But as for me, I would seek God, And I would place my cause before God; Who does great and unsearchable things, Wonders without number. He gives rain on the earth and sends water on the fields,” Job 5:8-10. Is rain a great and unsearchable wonder wrought by God? “Picture yourself as a farmer in the Near East, far from any lake or stream. A few wells keep the family and animals supplied with water. But if the crops are to grow and the family is to be fed from month to month, water has to come on the fields from another source. From where?” I don’t understand how water can be carried in the sky, and I don’t know how the drops ever make to the ground, because if they start falling as soon as they are heavier than air, they would be too small not to evaporate on the way down, but if they wait to come down, what holds them up till they are big enough not to evaporate? How is it that some drops are large, and some are small, or some drops fall in mass amounts and some just gradually fall from the sky. Yes, I am sure we can show science behind all of it, because we have a tendency to science everything away. But when we do that, we miss the glory of God behind it. As for me, I will just take Job’s word for it. I am satisfied that, this is a great and unsearchable thing that God has done. I think I should be thankful – lots more thankful than I am. Grateful to God for the wonder of rain. (Article using some of John Pipper’s words.)
