6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
10 The breath of God produces ice,
and the broad waters become frozen.
The truth that God creates, ordains, and controls all weather is really important to understand because, as William Law said, “He who complains of the weather—complains of the God who ordains the weather!” Basically we are raising our fists against God, against his wisdom, and his goodness.
I wonder how much complaining would be eliminated from our lives if we could truly be thankful for the weather we experience each day. Can we agree with the Psalmist that this is the day that the Lord has made, and can we rejoice and be glad in it?
