A Great Big Wonderful God!
Psa 135:7 He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
Many people desire to live their lives independent of the Creator. They wish for no interference from above. They are content with their own agenda and life style.
So, what if God pulled out of their lives? I mean, what if He backed off and let them run the whole thing themselves? Well, we see in this verse that they would occupy a barren desert. This "godless" existence would mean no morning dew glistening in the sun from green blades of grass. Roses, poppies, xenias and marigolds would never bloom. Birds wouldn't chirp, bees wouldn't buzz. There would be no brooks to babble, rivers to roll, no ponds to ponder nor lakes to live by. The breezes would never blow. Only desolate wasteland with endless vistas of hopelessness.
And this pretty much describes the soul without the Savior. An eternal conclusion would mean death, where all the aforementioned become reality in a place called hell.
I am so glad to have a loving Lord, a sovereign Savior who draws the moisture from the ground, sends it heavenward, and then allows it to fall back to the earth, only to repeat its cyclic journey.
I am thankful that He blessed my soul with celestial dew and opens the windows of heaven rouring out rich and undeserved blessings.
Lord, today, send the wind of your Holy Spirit out of your heavenly treasury into the depths of my soul. Thank you for always being there even when I indicate that I'd rather go it alone!
