Water In His Name


If someone said to you: “My God does great and unsearchable things; He does wonders without number.” How would you respond? Really, like what?  I read a verse recently from Job. That’s exactly what Job says, and then he adds, He gives rain on the earth, and sends water on the fields. Today I want to think like Job did. In his mind rain is really one of the great unsearchable things God does.

I did a little research because I wonder if we all understand what God does when it rains like it did yesterday. I looked at the radar it was raining from Mexico to Iowa! Here is what I found out. If one inch of rain falls on one square mile of land it is 27,878,400 cubic feet of water, which is 206,300,160 gallons, which is 1,650,501,280 pounds of water. Now that’s heavy and it rained inches and inches in Haskell! How does that much water get up in the sky? Well that is by evaporation, well what does that mean. Well water stops being liquid water for a while so it can go up and not down. It then turns back to liquid so it can come back down. The whole process has a lot of steps I grew tired of trying to understand like condensation, coalescence, etc.

            I think I will just look at rain like Job did.  "But as for me, I would seek God, and I would place my cause before God; Who does great and unsearchable things, wonders without number. “He gives rain on the earth, and sends water on the fields. This week I will place my concerns before our God, who does great things, like make it rain.

     This week as I prepare to make way to Nepal, I am humbled by what the Haskell Church has done…………again. Leigh and I have been a part of this family for nearly 8 years, and again I am humbled by the gift of this church, to do something that will make a real difference in people’s lives.  I ask you to continue to offer up prayers for this effort. My God does great and unsearchable things; He does wonders without number.

I love you all

Philip
