THE THUNDER OF HIS POWER

“Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways, and how small a whisper we hear of Him! But the thunder of His power who can understand?” (Job 26:14, NKJV).

Man needs power
To help those without it,
To strengthen those without strength,
To counsel him that hath no wisdom,
To declare things as they really are,
To renew dead spirits,
To cover the naked destruction of hell.
God has all power
To stretch out the universe
Over empty places,
Hanging the earth upon nothing.
He binds up humidity in thick clouds,
Placing boundaries on the waters.
He divides the sea with his power
And He smites the proud.
By His spirit He garnishes the heavens.
He even created the crooked serpent,
But these are on glimpses of His power—
Only a little portion of Him that is heard.
He has promised power to all men.
After that the Holy Ghost
Has come upon them
And there will be thunder in that power—
Thunder against injustice,
Immorality and crime,
Thunder against hypocrisy
And the tyranny of small things,
Thunder against materialism
And hate.
But deeper still,
Love
Is the thunder of power.
