My inspiration comes from the challenge with Rachel Wojo Bible Reading plan for May; You can drop bye her site and read more :
Job 37 : 1-7
37 At this also my heart trembleth, and is moved out of his place. Hear attentively the noise of his voice, and the sound that goeth out of his mouth. He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth. After it a voice roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.5God thundereth marvellously with his voice; great things doeth he, which we cannot comprehend.
My inspiration and page:
it under the whole heaven, and his lightning unto the ends of the earth ‘ And my page salutes the lighting in the sky over the Earth. Done in watercolors and pastels.
The changes of the weather are the subject of a great deal of our thoughts and common talk; but how seldom do we think and speak of these things, as Elihu, with a regard to God, the director of them! We must notice the glory of God, not only in the thunder and lightning, but in the more common and less awful changes of the weather; as the snow and rain. Nature directs all creatures to shelter themselves from a storm; and shall man only be unprovided with a refuge? Oh that men would listen to the voice of God,
Psalm 147 : 1-7
He determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.
He numbered the Stars and called them by name – I have always been fascinated by that. That he new each of us by name as he did the stars in the sky-which is my inspiration of this night time sky scene with stars.
This psalm tells us something about God’s love and his power. Here, power does not only mean that he rules everything. It also means that he is very, very strong. It is the second of the 5 *Hallelujah Psalms, 146-150. “*Hallelujah” means “*praise the *LORD”.
Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite.” The abruptness catches our attention. The connection seems to be, if it seems impossible for God to gather and restore the outcasts of Israel from the captivity, then look at God’s great power in governing the stars. If He can count them and name them all, which points to His authority over them, then certainly He can care for His oppressed people.
