Daily Devotional - January 13
Have you ever tried to count the clouds? At any given moment, about one half of the earth’s surface is covered with clouds. These clouds are either made of water droplets or ice crystals. Of the three types, the cumulus or “cotton ball” clouds last from 5-40 minutes. The number of clouds in the sky is constantly changing - yet at every moment of time, God knows the number of clouds!
God asks Job a rhetorical question in Job 38:37, “Who has the wisdom to count the clouds?” By implication, God is telling us that He is capable of exactly that! Just as God knows the number of hairs on our head; He knows the number of clouds in the sky at a given moment. God is all-knowing concerning his creation. He also knows every desire of your heart, every thought in your mind, every temptation you face, and every challenge you have to overcome. So take a moment, look up into the sky, marvel, and trust your Maker.
Who has the wisdom to count the clouds?
~ Job 38:37
