In my ongoing quest to learn and appreciate more the elements of God’s creation, today I want to visit about wind. Air movement or wind is an almost every day occurrence when you live on the plains. Perhaps that is why wind energy and towers are in our news so often.

What is not discussed is God’s relation to wind beginning with the fact that He created it (Amos 4:13) and sends it on its merry way (Psalm 147:18). The fact that God feels it is instrumental to our daily life makes me want to know more about it. To do this we have to understand where wind comes from. In Psalm 135:7 we are told wind comes out of the treasures God gives us. One of those treasures is not to far from my home and a popular tourist destination called Wind Cave. Exploring it you see the mastery of God’s handiwork.

God also can gather the wind together “in His fists” (Proverbs 30:4). We know the affects and knock out blow it gives when that is the case especially through tornadoes and hurricanes. In those and all other situations we must never forget that God is still in control (Psalm 107:25) and no matter its impact we are to use our experience with wind as a moment from which we can learn A LESSON FROM GOD.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Wisdom can come from watching the wind work out the will of God.

DEVOTIONAL VERSE FOR TODAY: Amos 4:13 “God created wind”.

PRAYER FOR TODAY: Lord thank you for all Your creation.
